The China Open started on Sunday in Beijing with the wildcard rounds.
In total 6 Chinese players made it into the first round proper with home favourite Ding Junhui one of them.
Ronnie O'Sullivan has blasted into the last 16 with a 5-1 win and another crowd favourite Jimmy White, after two poor seasons, has reached the last 16 also. Jimmy's route was rather diferent though as Stephen Lee withdrew from the event.
