Thursday, 6 April 2017 : Evans is now just two wins away from becoming the first female competitor in the main TV stages at the Crucible.
The 31-year-old has won the Ladies’ World Championship a record 11 times, but was beaten in last year’s final by Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee.
The Dudley player could face two-time world finalist Matthew Stevens next.
Having accepted an invitation for qualifying at Pond’s Forge in Sheffield, Evans fell 5-1 behind to world number 57 Hull before launching a superb comeback to progress.
In 2015, Evans faced 1997 world champion Ken Doherty in qualifying, but suffered a narrow 10-8 defeat.
“This is my best win,” said Evans. “Robin is an amazing player.
“I felt really good out there. If I had lost I would had felt even more gutted than a couple of years ago against Ken.
“When it went 8-8 I thought ‘oh no, not again’ but I stuck in well. I felt nervous but I had them under control.”
The 2017 World Championship takes place from 15 April until 1 May, with world number one Mark Selby looking to defend his title.
