Congratulations to Redcar’s Mike Dunn who has recorded the first 147 break of his career during frame four of his match with Kurt Maflin this evening during the German Masters qualifiers. In total it is the 79th maximum break in professional competition and the perfect way for Mike to mark his 40th birthday two days ago.
There was some confusion as to whether Mike would receive receive any additional prize money for his feat and initially Mike was told that he would not, but today World Snooker have confirmed that he will in fact receive the rolling non-televised total of £3,500. While the player’s pack was silent on the issue, I feel that this is the fairest decision and in the spirit of the current system.
