It hasn't been a vintage Betfred.com World Championship yet but it's only day six of 17 and the second round line-up is brimming with quality.
So far, 12 members of the top 16 are through with Stephen Maguire and John Higgins well placed to join them.
There are some mouth-watering matches to come.
Ronnie O'Sullivan continues his title defence against Mark Allen, which should be a fast flowing, high scoring affair.
Stephen Hendry takes on Ding Junhui, just as he did last year, beating him 13-7.
Mark Selby faces Graeme Dott in a contest I think could be very close.
Ali Carter against Neil Robertson promises to be another entertaining affair.
Shaun Murphy plays Marco Fu in a repeat of this season's UK Championship final, which was a poor match that was nevertheless gripping right to the end.
I sometimes wonder if best of 25 frames in the last 16 is too long as there have, in the past, been a lot of runaway victories.
I don't think there'll be many this year.
