STUART Bingham is into the last 16 of the World Snooker Championship after beating 10th seed Gary Wilson 10-5 at the Crucible.

Bingham resumed this evening 6-3 in front after making a blistering start to their match.

But Wilson, a two-time ranking event winner this season, won the first two frames of the night session with back-to-back half-centuries to haul himself within a frame.

However, uncharacteristic errors at crucial moments hampered Wilson’s chances and he cut an increasingly frustrated figure as Bingham eased through the next three frames to take the match.

Bingham told the World Snooker website: "There weren't many fireworks but when Gary missed chances I punished him.

"My game is still in there somewhere and I felt good at times.

"When I missed the black at the end of the first session, I was calling myself every name under the sun.

"I just got carried away, it was a good clearance up until that point and I was thinking I was going 7-2.

"Then in the evening when it went 6-5 I was wondering how it had turned around.

"But I stayed calm, kept going for my shots and managed to start winning frames again."

Bingham will play Ding Junhui or Jack Lisowski in the next round
