Yupeng notched his first-ever maximum break in tournament play to win the third frame of his 4-0 victory over Andrew Higginson and become only the third player from mainland China to achieve the feat, following Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo.
The 27-year-old was in devastating form as he reeled off further breaks of 72, 56 and 64 to seal a one-sided victory, with Higginson only managing to score a total of 53 points in the match.
Wales's Daniel Wells shocked UK Championship runner-up Shaun Murphy, beating him 4-3 in a close match.
