Robert Milkins
Robert Milkins made a maximum break during his World Championship qualifying match against Xiao Guodong on Wednesday morning.


Gloucester's Milkins made the 147 in the third frame, on his way to taking a 6-3 lead. He needs four more frames tonight to complete victory.


Milkins was already the only player to have made a 147 in the qualifying rounds of the World Championship, having done so in 2006 in a match against Mark Selby.


Today's effort was worth £1,500 for the rolling 147 prize, as well as £1,000 for the pre-TV high break prize, as long as another player does not make a 147.


The maximum from Milkins was the tenth of the season and 87th in snooker history.
