World number one Judd Trump eased through his group at the Championship League.
The 31-year-old beat both Rod Lawler and Lee Walker 3-1 in his opening two matches at Leicester's Morningside Arena.
That left Trump needing just a draw against Anthony Hamilton to top the group, and the 2019 world champion duly obliged with another 3-1 victory.
He took the opening frame with breaks of 30 and 41 before Hamilton pegged him back but Trump found his magic touch with breaks of 92 and 84 to take the next two frames.
Mark Allen completed the list of players through to the second stage.
The Northern Irishman dispatched Daniel Womersley 3-0 with breaks of 137, 103, and 94 before drawing 2-2 with Mitchell Mann, salvaging a point with a final-frame clearance of 124.
Allen recorded his second whitewash of the day with a 3-0 success against Chris Wakelin to top his group, after Mann could only draw with Womersley.
Stage Two action begins on Monday with Ronnie O'Sullivan headlining on Table 1 in Group H with David Gilbert, Craig Steadman and Chang Bingyu.
Meanwhile, Table 2 sees Masters Champion Yan Bingtao, Barry Hawkins, Matthew Selt, and Cao Yupeng compete in Group G.
