Ryan Day compiled the first 147 break in Tour Championship history during his quarter-final clash with Mark Selby.

The Welshman achieved snooker’s holy grail for the third time in his career, having also achieved the feat at the 2014 Haining Open and 2020 Championship League.

Day had endured a difficult start to his first appearance at the Tour Championship, registering just two points in the opening two frames against Selby.

However, the British Open champion hit back in spectacular fashion in frame three – notably producing a stunning positional shot off the 14th red and a magnificent long pot on the 15th along the way – to record the 11th maximum of the season.

Compiling the 187th maximum break in professional competition, Day became the 23rd different player to do so on three or more occasions.

The world number 19 must beat Selby on Thursday to secure automatic qualification for the Crucible as a top 16 seed.
