Zhou Joins 147 Club

  • 28th February 2019

Zhou Yuelong made his first official maximum break during his match against Lyu Haotian at the Indian Open in Kochi.

World number 34 Zhou made the perfect break in the fourth frame to make the score 2-2. It’s the first 147 made at the Indian Open, which has been running since 2013.

The maximum will be worth £10,000 from the rolling prize for 147s plus the tournament £2,000 high break prize if it is not equalled this week.

It’s the 150th official maximum in history and 11th of the season. Zhou, age 21, becomes the fourth Chinese player to enter the 147 club, after Ding Junhui, Liang Wenbo and Cao Yupeng.
