Snooker maximum breaks -thread

As the title says. Please add snooker's maximum break(s) here. I'll start with the Judd Trump's latest maximum on China Open 2017.

Place just the video's id (without the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=) and it should work.
In this case [ YOUTUBE ] btmB-p_0QFg [ /YOUTUBE ] without spaces.

I'll assume without clicking mick posted Ronnie's 5-minute maximum where everything looks so easy so I'll go with the opposite of that

Re: Snooker maximum breaks -thread

Every 147 is great, of course. I feel that the only ones I might call legendary are Ronnie's 5 minute masterpiece and Cliff's at the Crucible.

It looks like that might be in line with others' thinking, based on the first two reply videos.

Re: Snooker maximum breaks -thread

I should point out for the sake of anal pedantry that the term "maximum break" is inaccurate, since the true maximum break is 155. You simply get your opponent to foul and get yourself awarded a free ball, then you effectively have an extra red so you pot that and a colour, then just tap-in a boring old 147 on top of it.

I know, I am a complete arsehole showing off useless knowledge for narcissism/ attention-whore purposes.

Tony Drago recorded a 149 break from a free ball. Don't think there's a video of it, but here he is with a 3:33 century.

I always remember Mark Williams' 147 as one of the toughest I've seen, he had to make so many amazing pots to keep it going:

Quickfire 147 by Ronnie in an exhibition the other day. Unbelievable first few shots.

Just nuts that he runs it out like its nothing. He shoots em in like he's playing 8 ball and all his opponents balls are off the table. So good.
