Luca Brecel opened up a 6-2 advantage over four-time champion Mark Selby in the World Championship final.
Brecel imposed his attacking style from the off, taking a first frame lasting under seven minutes with a 77 break and racing 3-0 ahead with a composed 90.
Selby got on the board with a 54 and also made a 62 to get back to 5-2.
However, Brecel, who made another half-century immediately after the interval, rounded off his fine start with a effortless run of 70.
