World champion Williams into UK Championship fourth round
World champion Mark Williams moved into the fourth round of the UK Championship with a 6-3 victory over Noppon Saengkham.
The Welshman looked in good form as he responded to Saengkham's opening break of 119 by rattling off scores of 54, 72 and 112 on his way to a 4-1 lead.
Thailand's world number 34 won scratchy back-to-back frames to make things nervy for the 43-year-old.
But, Williams got over the line in an increasingly scrappy conclusion.
His reward for beating Saengkham is a tie with world number 15 Stephen Maguire in the fourth round, the Scot having seen off Ali Carter 6-3.
