World number one Mark Selby is in danger of being knocked out of the World Championship at the first hurdle after falling 6-3 behind to Barry Hawkins.
Mark Selby has been plagued by a neck injury recently.
Selby, who had been struggling with a neck problem in the build-up to the tournament, was 3-1 behind to Hawkins, 1213.00 to win the World Championship, at the mid-session interval.
Selby, 1213.00 to win the tournament, hit back to make it 3-3, only for Hawkins to win the last three frames of the day on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, former world champion Graeme Dott suffered a humilating 10-1 defeat to Joe Perry, 1213.00 to win the World Championship.
Perry goes on to play Stephen Maguire in the last 16, while Dott admitted after his loss: "I played terrible. I don't think I've played worse, not only at the Crucible but as a professional. I just couldn't pot a ball.
"I've not really played well all season. But normally when I come here I play pretty well, but you can't rely on playing well here all the time. You're eventually due a stinker. But to play as bad as that is hard to understand, it's demoralising."
