Thepchaiya Un-Nooh made the third maximum break of his career at the BetVictor German Masters qualifiers in Cannock on Friday morning.
The Thai’s perfect break came in the second frame of his match against Fan Zhengyi and made the score 1-1.
Former Shoot Out champion Un-Nooh previously had 147s at the 2016 Paul Hunter Classic and 2018 English Open. Prior to that, he had missed the black on 140 at the 2015 UK Championship and again in the qualifying rounds of the 2016 World Championship.
The maximum puts him in line for the tournament’s £5,000 high break prize.
It’s the fifth 147 of the season and 171st in snooker history.
