The win continues White's 100 per cent qualification record so far this season despite a mid-session wobble that saw ‘The Whirlwind’ throw away a three-frame advantage.

After being pegged back to 3-3, the former world number two rattled off the next two frames to progress to a final qualifier against Ben Woollaston on Monday.

The world’s fastest player, Tony Drago, will join him in the next qualifying round having beaten Tian Pengfei 5-3.
