Mark Selby is through to the last 32 of the Scottish Open after beating Oliver Lines 4-1 on Tuesday afternoon.
Selby has secured his 16th consecutive win in the tournament, but it was not all plain sailing as Lines took a surprise lead with a break of 64 in an opening frame which saw a butterfly disrupt the match.
But a poor shot from Lines in the second frame caused him to hit a red when he planned to come off the cushion. He was forced to play safe before missing a long red by a distance and Selby capitalised to level up with a 92.

'So good' - Selby beats Lines with century break to close out match

"Happy with the win, I don't think it was a great match," Selby said afterwards.
"Oliver made a good break in the first frame.
I feel as though we both missed a lot of balls but just kept running out of position at silly times when you had a chance to win the frame.
"Sometimes you can come into tournaments feeling great about your game but then the game does not let you play sometimes. Today it did but I just didn't play well.
"The standard is so tough to win any tournament. If you win one tournament in a season you have to class it as a good season. I'm still in it so we will see what happens."
