jungchen : Snooker WM
Seven-time champion Stephen Hendry hit a maximum 147 break in his World Championship quarter-final clash with Shaun Murphy at the Crucible.
The Scot has now had nine maximums in his career, including one other in Sheffield in the 1995 semi-finals.
Hendry, 40, will earn £147,000 for the feat, with another £10,000 likely for the tournament's highest break.
The final black glanced both jaws before dropping as Hendry opened a 5-2 lead in the opening session.
After sinking a tricky pink with his penultimate shot, Hendry was left with an awkward cut back into the bottom corner to complete the clearance.
An anxious moment followed as the black briefly threatened to squirm free, before the crowd stood to acclaim the veteran.
