Century Record Smashed

A few days ago it became clear that the World Championship record of 68 centuries set in both 2002 and 2007 would be beaten this year and indeed during the tenth frame of his quarter-final with Neil Robertson this afternoon, Stephen Maguire knocked in century 69…

Though a lot has been said about the state of the tables this year and to an extent justifiably so I think, it is still a notable landmark and with five days still to go it will be interesting to see just what it ends up as. I’ll hazard a guess at 91.
