Tony Drago lost in the opening round of qualifying for the International Championship in Sheffield.

Six-times world champion Steve Davis joins qualifying in Monday's second round, while Jimmy White and Liang Wenbo among others begin in round three on Tuesday and the likes of Peter Ebdon, Ali Carter and Marco Fu come straight into the fourth and final round on Wednesday.
The tournament proper, a new ranking event, takes place from October 28 to November 4 in Chengdu, China.
