Following his defeat in the finals of the Six Red World Championships in Thailand, Un-Nooh has dusted off his cue tip and achieved what most snooker players can only dream of, a 100% perfect, 147 break in a major tournament.
Joining only a few of the game’s top players, Un-Nooh was unphased by his recent defeat in front of a home crowd and has taken his campaign to the world stage with a spectacular 147 break in the WST Classic tournament.
During an intense match against Xu Si in the WST Classic, Un-Nooh produced a jaw-dropping fourth 147 break of his career that left the crowd on the edge of their seats. Despite being 3-2 behind, the Thai master showed nerves of steel and calmly potted his way into the snooker Hall of Fame in the fifth frame of the game.
Un-Nooh has now joined an elite club of only 13 players who have made four or more official 147 breaks in their careers. This incredible feat comes after he famously missed the final black on 140 during the 2015 UK Championship, only to bounce back the following year and claim his first official maximum 147 break.
But that’s not all. Un-Nooh’s impressive performance marks the tenth 147 of the season and the 186th in snooker history, adding to the thrill and excitement of the WST Classic in 2023.
As if legendary status was not enough, Un-Nooh is now in line to win the tournament’s £5,000 high break prize, unless another player manages to equal his remarkable break over the next three days of play. Thepchaiya Un-Nooh is becoming a genuine force to be reckoned with and if he can keep up this form he might be one to watch in upcoming tournaments.
