MARK Williams is Gwent’s last man standing at the ManBetX Welsh Open after three more first-round exits on day two.

Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena hasn’t been kind to the region’s cuemen this year with Williams one of five players left in the draw.

Cwm’s two-time champion bids for a place in round three this afternoon when he takes on world number 75 Jordan Brown.

But the tournament is over for Jackson Page, Jak Jones and Darren Morgan, who all exited the event on Tuesday.

Defeats for the trio followed Lee Walker’s 4-2 reverse against John Astley on Monday.

While Ebbw Vale teenager Page took world number eight Kyren Wilson to a decider, Jones and Morgan were whitewashed by Robert Milkins and Shaun Murphy respectively.

Milkins was in superb form against Cwmbran potter Jones, compiling breaks of 88, 60, 61 and 57 on his way to a 4-0 victory.

And Newbridge’s Morgan could only manage 40 points in his match, as Murphy made 93 and 53 to see off the 1992 runner-up.

Williams is one of only four Welsh players left, with Daniel Wells, Matthew Stevens and Dominic Dale also in action today.
