3:1 

A break of 103 and Robertson takes the match. Classy stuff from the World Champion, Dott just was too inconsistent.

2:1 

Match ball - barring snookers. And Robertson puts it away - could this be a century clearance? He's on 78 at the moment.

2:1 

This, unfortunately from Dott's perspective, is looking ominous. 49-0 and counting.

2:1 

Once again, Robertson has started well. Complacency from the Australian has seen this match go on for longer than perhaps it should have done. Will he have learnt his lesson?

2:1 

And he does take it 69-68! That's fantastic from the Scot, Robertson is not impressed.

2:0 

But he's been let in once more from a foul by Robertson and if he can hold his nerve he should steal this - he's onto the colours.

2:0 

A few misses from both players and Dott is back on the table, trailing 46-23. But he's missed that red and that could be his last shot of the match. The Scot shakes his head in disgust.

2:0 

Is that luck or just talent? Robertson holds his hand up to suggest the former as he thunders into the reds and finds himself on one to the bottom-left pocket. But sensationally he's mishit it and Dott's back on the table.

2:0 

Terrific long pot to the bottom-right pocket from the World Champion to get the third frame underway. He wants to wrap it up as soon as possible.

2:0 

And Robertson clears up, using the rest to pot the blue. He's straight on for the pink, in it goes, followed by the black and that's the frame. Dott under pressure now.

1:0 

Fortune eventually favours the brave as far as Dott's concerned, as he flukes a double of the green off the bottom cushion into the top-right pocket. He just needs the blue now... but he's missed it! Three balls left, 51-41 Dott.

1:0 

Just when it looked like Dott would wrap up the frame, he misses a simple black. Robertson comes back to the table - one red left at the bottom of the table, with the white in amongst the colours at the top.

1:0 

Robertson is forced to swerve round the green and ends up leaving Dott on for a tricky red to the bottom-left pocket... which he makes. He pots the blue and then another red, leaving three left - he's got a great chance here to level proceedings.

1:0 

Robertson goes for the thinnest of contacts on a red but misses altogether, giving Dott four points for the foul. A safety exchange is now underway.

1:0 

The second frame is at a crucial stage with Dott trailing 36-12 but at the table - six reds remain and the Scot has a tough snooker to deal with.

1:0 

Hello and welcome to the first round of the World Open, with Neil Robertson currently leading Graeme Dott by one frame.
