The maximum effort came in the fourth frame of his encounter with the Irishman, putting him 4-0 up at the mid-session interval at Ponds Forge.

It marks only the third time in World Championship qualifying history that a 147 break has been constructed – with the other two both tallied by Robert Milkins.

Wilson’s 147 represents a record 13th of this season, bringing the total number of maximums made competitively up to 131.

Former China Open runner-up Wilson has endured a difficult campaign and is battling to remain inside the top 64 in the world rankings this week.
