Kyren Wilson produces wonderful 147 break at the World Snooker Championship
Kyren Wilson fired in a sensational 147 break during his First Round clash with Ryan Day at the World Snooker Championship on Wednesday.
The Warrior produced the 13th maximum in Crucible history in the fifth frame, putting him on course to pocket £40,000 as well as the £15,000 high break prize.
Wilson endured a slow start to the contest, slipping 2-0 behind, but levelled after runs of 133 and 83 before completing the turnaround with a beautifully crafted 147.
The 2020 finalist becomes the ninth different player to achieve snooker’s holy grail in Sheffield, while he is also the 14th player to hit a 147 on four or more occasions.
The 188th maximum break in tournament play, it is also the 12th of the season. Ironically, Day compiled the most recent one at the Tour Championship, where Wilson was runner-up to Shaun Murphy.
