MARK King was left to rue a costly miss as a 147 break slipped from his grasp with just two shots left to play at the Betway UK Championship.

World No 21 King ran out of position off the final blue and left the pink up in the third frame of his match against Mike Dunn, missing out on the first maximum of his career and a potential £20,000 windfall. His compensation was a 6-4 second-round victory which was eventually secured with a break of 58 in the 10th frame.

Ronnie O’Sullivan progressed with ease as he saw off Michael Georgiou 6-1, while Shaun Murphy came close to following top seeds Mark Selby and Ding Junhui out of the tournament after losing three successive frames to trail 5-4 before edging the last two to go through against Liam Highfield.

Elsewhere, there were wins for Jimmy Robertson, Kyren Wilson, Ricky Walden, Luca Brecel and Yan Bingtao.
