The Northern Irishman won 4-0 to set up a second-round encounter with Jack Bradford, who beat Elliot Slessor 4-1. Victory over Bradford on Friday morning will see Swail qualify for the main event in Furth.

That clash is one of just 12 outstanding second-round matches to be played on Friday after 72 games in the opening two rounds were completed on Thursday.

Adam Wicheard and Michael Wild were among those winning through on the opening day of action.

Round three signals the start of the main event, with the likes of Mark Selby and John Higgins entering the fray on Friday.
