Ronnie O'Sullivan is in the next round of the Ladbrokes Players Championship following a 5-1 win over Liang Wenbo in Llandudno.

After the break The Rocket quickly finished off his opponent with breaks of 101 and 71 and will now meet Judd Trump or Mark King in the quarter-finals at Venue Cymru.

"It's a nice event, but I've got to get out of Llandudno for a few days. It's a bit windy, there's not much to do around here," said O'Sullivan on ITV4.

It was a similar story for Anthony Hamilton, who knocked out fourth seed Stuart Bingham. Hamilton, recent winner of the German Masters, reeled off a 131-break first up on his way to a 5-1 victory.

Further breaks of 105 and 59 to secure a meeting in the last eight with Ding Junhui or John Higgins.
