Graeme Dott composed the second 147 break of his career during his Betfred World Championship qualifying clash with Pang Junxu in Sheffield.
The 2006 Crucible king made his perfect run in the sixth frame to move 5-1 ahead. Dott’s last 147 break came 23 years ago at the 1999 British Open.
The break puts him in line for a £10,000 maximum break bonus for the qualifying event. If it stands as the high break for the entire tournament, he will also receive an additional £15,000.
It is the 175th maximum break in snooker history and the fifth to be made at the World Championship Qualifiers.
