The former World and UK Champion made the maximum during his match against Mark Davis at Condon Park, which he won 3-2. It's Murphy's first maximum since the 2001 B&H Championshp. He will receive the high break prize of £500 in group two as long as the 147 is not equalled on Thursday. It's the 103rd maximum in snooker history and sixth of the season.

 

UK Champion Neil Robertson was also on top form, winning his final match 3-0 against Joe Perry, banging in three centuries including a 144. That put the Australian in joint first position alongside Murphy and Joe Perry, who took three wins from his four matches.

 

Robertson has now made an incredible 63 centuries this season, beating the record of 61 in a single campaign, set by Judd Trump in 2012/13. With four months of the season still to go, Robertson could conceivably set himself a target of making 100 centuries.

 

Play continues on Thursday with nine more matches followed by the semi-finals and the final.

 

The Championship League Snooker event is a venture between Matchroom Sport and Perform where 25 of the game's finest players compete with all matches broadcast on betting websites.
