The reigning World Youth Champion put in some stunning displays, averaging 102.4 for the evening as he swept aside Michael Smith, Andy Boulton and Mike van Duivenbode.

Humphries started the evening by averaging 100 in a narrow 5-4 victory over Boulton in his opening game, but his best was yet to come.

The 24-year-old then posted an incredible 108.5 as he destroyed top-seed Michael Smith 5-2 to put himself in a commanding position going into his final game.

And his progression to the Last 32 was completed with a hard-fought 5-3 over Dutch youngster Van Duivenbode to put him on six points and out of the grasp of his competitors.

Smith had started the night with a thumping whitewash victory over Van Duivenbode, but after defeat to Humphries he could only muster second place by beating Boulton 5-2 in the final game of the night.
