Five-time champion Ronnie O’Sullivan celebrated his 42nd birthday with a 6-1 win over Welshman Michael White in the third round of the UK Championship.
O’Sullivan is seeking to match Steve Davis’ record haul of six titles and was dominant early on, scoring a stunning 132 on his way to a 4-1 lead against an off-colour White.
An error-strewn sixth frame also went O’Sullivan’s way.
He eventually finished the match in style with a fine break of 65.
O’Sullivan will play either Barry Hawkins or Thailand’s Akani Songsermsawad in round four.
