Ryan Day made the second maximum break of his career on the opening day of the BetVictor Championship League in Milton Keynes.
Day’s perfect break came in the last frame of his opening match against Rod Lawler at the first ranking event of the 2020/21 season. Having earlier compiled runs of 76 and 51 in taking a 2-1 lead, Day rounded off a 3-1 victory in the best possible fashion.
The 40-year-old Welshman made his first 147 at the 2014 Haining Open. Today’s maximum is the 158th in snooker history.
World number 37 Day will also face Matthew Stevens and Paul Davison today as he aims to top the group and make it through to the second phase in October.
