Five-time tournament winner O’Sullivan squeezed home in the deciding frame, after Akani blew the chance to wrap up victory when leading 5-4.

The 2008 tournament winner Shaun Murphy stormed past Ricky Walden 6-1, to book a quarter-final against Mark King.

“He had chances and didn’t take them.”
Mark Joyce saw off Lyu Haotian 6-4 to book a last-eight showdown with Wales’ Ryan Day.
