Mark Williams Nails Ridiculous One-Handed Shot At Masters

Mark Williams came back from 3-1 down to knock defending champion Yan Bingtao out of the Masters on Sunday.

Williams won the match 6-4, and will face either John Higgins or Zhao Xintong in the quarter-finals.

World number eight Williams won the fifth frame with a flourish, hitting a one-handed shot to escape from a snooker and pot the pink.

"You're kidding me," said Eurosport commentator Dave Hendon.

"Wow, what a finish to the frame that is. Incredible. It's great snooker. Mark Williams does things his own way."

Williams said he rarely misses these type of shots in practice.

"I felt I was a little bit unlucky to be 3-1 down to be honest," he said.

"A couple of flicks here and there and it could have easily been two each.

"I just carried on doing what I was doing really, the under-arm shots I play all the time in practice and hardly ever miss.

"I should really be playing them a lot more in matches, but perhaps I will start."
