Young Welsh sensation Michael White became the first player to book his Quarter-Final spot on Friday, continuing his dream debut, and a host familiar names will be aiming to join the starlet in the business end of this captivating tournament.

All eyes, once again, will be on O'Sullivan as he steps out to face Ali Carter in a mouth-watering repeat of last year's final, one in which O'Sullivan famously prevailed 18-11 to scoop his fourth world title.

The Rocket marched to a comfortable victory over Scotsman Marcus Campbell on his hugely anticipated competitive return on day one and Carter knows that The Rocket still has gears to climb.

Carter, who reeled off seven consecutive frames to wrap up a 10-4 rout of Ben Woollaston in round one, will meet reigning champion O'Sullivan in the last 16 on Saturday, and has admitted that he'd rather face him at this stage of the competition.  

Following the departure of a host of top seeds, the top half of the draw has opened up considerably for O'Sullivan to surge into the latter stages, and although Carter could have the tactical upper hand, it looks a tall order for him to contain his opponent's relentless break-building power over the long haul format.

Ronnie's newest rival - Judd Trump - looks to kick on from a scintillating opening session display against Hong Kong ace Marco Fu when the duo play their match to a conclusion over a possible further two sessions.

The Juddernaut blasted into a 6-2 overnight lead with two notable century breaks and a superb display of 'naughty snooker', and it looks like taking a remarkable turnaround to deny him a place in the last eight. 

Mark Selby continues his quest for an illustrious Triple Crown, but will surely also have revenge planted at the back of his mind as he concludes against the man who knocked him out in round one 12 months ago - Barry Hawkins.

After two gripping sessions, there remains very little to choose between the pair, and their combined ability to mix deadly scoring with fascinating safety makes for a gripping climax and one which could go the distance.

Ding Junhui carries the hope of one of the world's biggest and most expectant nations on his shoulders, and the Chinese number one, out to finally shrug off his Crucible curse, takes on resurgent veteran Mark King in round two.

A thoroughly professional display saw Ding avert a potential banana skin against the methodical Alan McManus earlier in the week, and the PTC Grand Finals Champion will feel he has a genuine chance of getting his hands on the illustrious trophy on May 6, should he transcend into his 'A' game.

King will undoubtedly be riding high after dumping out the well-fancied Mark Allen in his opener and another scalp would see him into the Quarter-Finals here for the first time in 14 attempts.

Michael White's 13-3 thrashing of new crowd hero Dechawat Poomjaeng on Friday afternoon meant there was no need for a third and final session, hence there being just one game on the billing for the morning session. 

The action gets underway at 10am BST, with second round matches played to a conclusion over the best of 25 frames (maximum of eight frames per session), from the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
