World number one Judd Trump strolled into the World Championship quarter-finals by completing a 13-8 victory over world number 15 David Gilbert.
Tournament favourite Trump, 31, showed glimpses of his rare talent but did not need to be at his best to progress.
An out-of-sorts Gilbert trailed 11-5 overnight but battled back to 12-8 before the 2019 champion Trump won a messy 21st frame to progress.
Stuart Bingham joined Trump in the last eight with a 13-6 win over Jamie Jones.
The 2015 Crucible winner led the Welshman 10-6 overnight and wasted no time in getting over the line, breaks of 117, 68 and 102 sealing a hugely impressive victory over his fellow qualifier.
Bingham, who faces Scotland’s Anthony McGill in the last eight after reaching that stage for the first time since he won the event six years ago, said: “It was nice to get the job done quickly.
“I’m happy with my game. I could easily been 5-3 down and so to be 4-4 after the first session set me up.
“The tables are playing really well and break-building is my game. I feel good and I am cueing well. But I need to sharpen up my safety game.
“You have to be on your game here as you are playing top players every match.”
Trump, who scored four centuries, was made to work harder than he would have wanted to secure his place but never looked in real danger.
Gilbert, a semi-finalist in 2019, made breaks of 68 and 79 to trail by four at 11-7, however a classy 107 took Trump within a frame of the finishing line, a target he reached after the mid-session interval.
Still to come
The final two remaining second-round matches play to a finish on Monday night.
Shaun Murphy, the 2005 champion, resumes 10-6 up on China’s world number 10 Yan Bingtao.
Seventh seed Murphy has not reached the quarter-finals since he went all the way to the final, where he lost to Bingham, in 2015.
Three-time champion Mark Selby, the number four seed, leads Northern Ireland’s Mark Allen 9-6.
