Two-time champion John Higgins was given a scare by fellow Scot Anthony McGill before booking his place in the Masters quarter-finals with a 6-4 win.
In a contest where the advantage swung one way then the other, four-time world champion Higgins led 2-0 before the debutant won four on the trot, which included a 122 clearance, to lead.
But the famously dogged Higgins hit back to move within a frame of victory.
He sealed the win in the 10th frame to set up a match against Wales' Ryan Day.
In the day's other first-round match, 2015 champion Shaun Murphy recorded a 6-4 win over fellow Englishman Ali Carter.
