Haikou (China), Feb 26 — Defending Champion Mark Allen scored a 5-2 win over Ryan Day on the second day of the Snooker Haikou World Open here Tuesday.

Allen, looking forward to advance to the next round, was challenged by Day in the first round.

In the first two frames, Day played well and got a leg up against his opponent Allen who did not get himself going quickly enough.

But the next five frames became a one-man show by Allen. After getting back into the match in the third and fourth frames, Allen won three frames in a row and came back to seal the contest.
