The world number 22 went down 4-3 to Chinese Yu Delu, a player he had beaten in their two previous meetings.

At 3-2 down in the sixth frame Yu missed a difficult frame-ball red and Day completed a 73 clearance to stay in the match.

However the Welshman reverted to form in the decider as Yu took a deserved win.

In other notable matches, six-times World Championship finalist Jimmy White lost 4-2 to Lin Shuai in the first round while in the two all-English clashes Ricky Walden edged a seven-frame contest against Mark King and Robert Milkins defeated Andrew Higginson 4-2.
