Judd Trump compiled the eighth maximum break of his career against Mitchell Mann at the Scottish Open on Tuesday.
The Ace delighted the crowd at the Meadowbank Sport Centre in Edinburgh as he achieved snooker’s holy grail in the opening frame of his second-round showdown with Mann.
It was Trump’s second 147 in the space of a month, having also played a perfect frame against Ronnie O’Sullivan in the Champion of Champions final three weeks ago.

The Bristolian joined Cao Yupeng, John Higgins, Zhou Yuelong and Xiao Guodong on the list of players to have compiled a maximum in the Scottish Open since the introduction of the Home Nations Series, in which there have now been 16 since Alfie Burden’s effort against Daniel Wells at the 2016 English Open.
Trump’s tally of eight 147 breaks is now only bettered by O’Sullivan (15), John Higgins (12), Hendry (11) and Stuart Bingham (nine).
