Former world champion and world number one Judd Trump of England eased into the second round of the World Snooker Championship with a 10-4 win over Hossein Vafaei of Iran.

Trump is set to meet Anthony McGill of Scotland in the next round.

It was not the best of opening sessions for Vafaei at the Crucible as Trump secured a 6-3 lead before taking four of the next five for an easy win.

Three-time champion Mark Williams of Wales was no match for compatriot Jackson Page as the former opened up a 7-1 lead in their second round match.

Williams was ruthless as he got breaks of 125, 74, 53, 50, 100, 75, 51 and 121 to ensure a commanding position.

Page, on the other hand, was struggling and only managed 134 points in the entire session.

Williams will require six more frames to ensure a spot in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, Stepehen Maguire of Scotland cruised to a 5-3 lead in the opening session against China's Zhao Xintong.

Maguire’s decision to use a new cue for his second-round match proved to be an excellent decision.

Despite trailing on three occasions, the Scot made two centuries and a break of 80 to secure an overnight lead.
