Stuart Bingham: Beaten by 21-year-old Kyren Wilson
Kyren Wilson and Xiao Guodong produced stunning displays to dump Stuart Bingham and Stephen Maguire out of the Shanghai Masters at the first-round stage.
Xiao gave the home fans something to cheer with a 5-2 win over Maguire - but Wilson's was arguably the performance of the day as the 21-year-old Kettering potter marked his first appearance at the final stages of a ranking event by thumping Bingham 5-1.
He could even have added a 147 break in frame four, but missed the 13th black after making 97.
That was more than enough for a four-frame lead and although Bingham pulled one back in the next, a run of 54 in frame six sealed Wilson's win.
"It's my first ranking event so I'm pleased with my performance. It's a massive win and I'll always remember it."

The world No 100, who next faces Marco Fu, told the official World Snooker website: "It's my first ranking event so I'm pleased with my performance. It's a massive win and I'll always remember it.
"Hopefully I can go on and do better. Marco recently won the Australian Open so I know he's playing well. But Stuart is a very good player and I have beaten him 5-1 even though I was the underdog."
Martin Gould came from 3-2 down to beat Ricky Walden 5-3, while Mark King book-ended his 5-3 win over Graeme Dott with breaks of 106 and 70.
In the eveneing session, World No 2 Mark Selby advanced to the second round with minimum of fuss as he eased past home favourite Lin Shuai.
The Chinese wildcard gave a spirited performance and won the first frame but Selby's class eventually showed through as he claimed a 5-2 victory with a break of 120 in the final frame.
"Lin is a very good player, very natural, and I think he has a fantastic future ahead of him," said Selby.
Ding Junhui also claimed a 5-2 win over David Gilbert. The home favourite compiled two century breaks on his way to a comfortable victory.
