Bingham Makes Maximum In Beijing
Stuart Bingham made the fourth 147 of his career at the Fuhua Group China Open on Wednesday.
Bingham’s perfect break came in the seventh frame of his last-32 match against Ricky Walden in Beijing, putting the 2015 World Champion 4-3 up.
It’s the second maximum in consecutive days following one from Ronnie O’Sullivan on Tuesday. The prize money of £42,000 (£35,000 from the rolling pot for 147s plus the £7,000 high break prize) will now be shared equally between Bingham and O’Sullivan with £21,000 each, providing there are no more 147s this week.
It’s the 138th maximum break in snooker history and seventh of the season.
Bingham’s previous 147s came at a 1999 UK Tour event, 2005 Masters qualifying and the 2012 Wuxi Classic.
