3:1 

That is breathtaking from Carter. The pink is very central and near the bottom cushion, the white is up the other end. But no matter, he cuts it beautifully into the bottom-left hand corner, and even positions himself well on the black. In it goes, match over.

2:1 

But a terrific snooker from Un-Nooh puts him back in the driving seat, but he misses on a tough pink. 69-60 the Thai leads, last two balls left.

2:1 

Carter clears the reds and then lays an extremely tough snooker behind the black.

2:1 

Another complacent shot from Un-Nooh at a crucial time - he was leading 55-16 and looking like taking the fourth frame, but he's allowed his opponent back in and it could be very costly.

2:1 

Looks like Carter won't close this one out quite as clinically as Neil Robertson did against Graeme Dott. The reds are quite nicely spread so if either player can hold his nerve, the frame could be theirs. Un-Nooh is at the table leading 16-15.

2:1 

Un-Nooh fails to capitalise on a missed black by Carter, and the Essex man is now 47-1 in front. After a safety exchange, Carter knocks in two reds to leave just one left. He misses the brown but takes the frame.

1:1 

Carter uses the rest to put in a red at the bottom-right pocket, and has six more quite well spread on the table. He leads 40-1 and is in pole position to take the frame.

1:1 

This is impressive stuff from the young Thai. A break of 67 and he's still at the table, but there are three reds bunched on bottom cushion. He goes for a long blue and misses, but still takes the frame to level things up.

1:0 

It's another superb long pot from Un-Nooh - he really does have an eye for the tricky ones, doesn't he?

1:0 

An attritional frame there between the two players, which eventually Carter takes.

0:0 

It's a tense first frame but Carter's in the driving seat 53-41 after Un-Nooh fouls twice.

0:0 

Cracking long pot from Un-Nooh, followed by an equally impressive snooker.

0:0 

They call him Thailand's answer to Ronnie O'Sullivan and he's looking pretty good right now. Some pacey pots sees Un Nooh 40-4 up and still at the table - but that's a poor miss on the black. A bit too hasty, perhaps?

0:0 

We're underway. Un Nooh breaks, but Carter puts in the first red.

0:0 

In the second match of the afternoon, Thailand's Thepchaiya Un-Nooh comes out to Frankie Goes to Hollywood's 'When Two Tribes Go To War', while Ali Carter walks out to Elvis' 'A Little Less Conversation'.
