Mark Williams, Matthew Stevens and Dominic Dale will have their final qualifying round matches in the Welsh Open held over to the final stages.
This means there will be at least four Welshmen at the Newport Centre as Ryan Day is seeded through as world no.8.
This strikes me as a sensible move. If you want spectators to come along it helps if there are local players in action.
I suspect the players will agree - all three have had problems getting through from Prestatyn this season and are more at home in the TV set up.
