Stuart Bingham made the fourth 147 of his career at the Fuhua Group China Open on Wednesday.
Bingham’s perfect break came in the seventh frame of his last-32 match against Ricky Walden in Beijing, putting the 2015 World Champion 4-3 up.
It’s the second maximum in consecutive days following one from Ronnie O’Sullivan on Tuesday. The prize money of £42,000 (£35,000 from the rolling pot for 147s plus the £7,000 high break prize) will now be shared equally between Bingham and O’Sullivan with £21,000 each, providing there are no more 147s this week.
It’s the 138th maximum break in snooker history and seventh of the season.
Bingham’s previous 147s came at a 1999 UK Tour event, 2005 Masters qualifying and the 2012 Wuxi Classic.
