Defending world champion Judd Trump survived a first-round scare to edge past Tom Ford on day one of the rearranged 2020 World Championship.
Qualifier Ford raced into a 3-0 lead and was 5-4 ahead going into the evening session at The Crucible.
However, Trump raised his game and claimed six of the next nine frames to seal a 10-8 win in Sheffield.
Trump will now face China’s Yan Bingtao or fellow Englishman Elliot Slessor in the second round.
In Friday’s other first-round matches, 2015 champion Stuart Bingham edged to a 5-4 lead over Ashley Carty in their best-of-19 encounter.
China’s Ding Junhui took a 5-4 lead over England’s Mark King, while Scotland’s Alan McManus came from behind to lead Welsh three-time champion Mark Williams 5-4 on his first appearance at The Crucible since 2016.
McManus, 49, is also the oldest player to feature in the main draw since Steve Davis reached the quarter-finals on his final appearance at the age of 52 in 2010.
