After Ding Junhui produced the second maximum of his career at the UK Championship, see the full list of 147 breaks here.

Ding's previous effort came at the 2007 Masters and he becomes the ninth player to have produced multiple 147s.

The record tournament break however, is a 148 achieved by Jamie Burnett during the qualifying stages of the 2004 UK Championship.

After being awarded a free ball Burnett took the brown as an extra red, then added the brown again and went on to pot all 15 reds with one blue, two pinks and 12 blacks before polishing off the colours.
