Maiden Max For Day

Day1

Congratulations to world number 20 Ryan Day, who earlier today made his first professional 147 break at the AT2 event in Haining, China.

Coming during the final frame of his 4-1 win against Cao Yupeng, the maximum represents the 107th in snooker history and following an announcement from World Snooker after the break, earns him a £1,000 bonus, provided that the break is not equalled during the final day of the tournament tomorrow.

The break was refereed by local ref Zhou Bingfeng, while Ryan would subsequently go on to make it to the quarter-finals of the event, before losing out to rising star Oliver Lines.
