Just days away from ending an illustrious playing career, Stephen Hendry’s love affair with the Crucible continued with a 147-break against Stuart Bingham on April 21, 2012.
The seven-time World Championship winner rattled in 15 reds and as many blacks before potting all six colours, the 10th and last time a maximum break has been recorded in the competition.
Here, the PA news agency looks at those who have achieved the feat in Sheffield:
The Rocket lived up to his nickname and left commentators scrambling for suitable adjectives after taking only five minutes and eight seconds to clear the table in his first round encounter against Mick Price in 1997. O’Sullivan was just 21 at the time but he would repeat the feat six years later against Marco Fu, becoming the first person to record more than one 147 at the World Championships, while he had his third against Mark Williams in their second round contest in 2008.
