World number 24 Carter won six of his seven matches, and fired runs of 141, 135, 103 and 101. Today’s success continued a recent revival for two-time Crucible finalist Carter as he reached the quarter-finals of the BetVictor Welsh Open and last 32 of the BetVictor Gibraltar Open.
With the Betfred World Championship qualifiers less than a month away, the four-time ranking event winner is looking to finish the season strongly.
World number 54 Davis won five of his seven matches, crucially scoring 2-0 victories in his last three games against Carter, Hamim Hussain and Dylan Emery. Simon Lichtenberg also enjoyed five wins, but finished behind Davis on frame difference.
The action continues on Thursday from 10am with BetVictor Welsh Open champion Jordan Brown among the players in Group F. The first phase concludes on March 16th.
