The career of one of snooker's all-time great just got even greater, as Mark Williams became the oldest player to achieve a 147, during his 5-3 loss to Neil Robertson at the English Open.

Williams is already a three-time world champion, with two UK Championship titles, two Masters titles, and 24 ranking titles in total, while also racking up three 147 breaks throughout his career.


And, although his quarter-final ended in defeat, Williams and Robertson played out a sensational match, with the Welshman producing five century breaks in the process.

Commentators Jimmy White and Neal Foulds were in awe with the snooker on show, with White labelling it as one of the best ever best of nine matches he had ever witnessed.
"Phenomenal game of snooker,” said White. "147 for Mark Williams. Not had a shot for three frames, steps in makes a 147.
"Another couple of centuries. It looked like whoever got the first red would basically win the frame, it was that good a match.
"I don’t think I’ve seen two players play that well in a best of nine.”
"I reckon the only way to make a better match than that is if you put all those frames together but it goes 4-4 and you have the final frame of what happened in the Masters, all the drama, then you have the perfect snooker match," said Foulds.
"You’ve had the breaks, the maximum and all the drama that went with it,"
"It was clinical finishing, not only by the man who lost but even more so by the man that won.
"It was a real exhibition of break-building and scoring. Marvellous match and even Mark Williams is not going to come away disappointed after that.”
