Judd Trump made the fifth 147 break of his career in a stunning 4-0 win over Gao Yang at the Northern Ireland Open, making another two centuries in the match.

The world number one made the perfect break in the third frame of the match, becoming only the eighth player in history to make five 147s in their career.

The Juddernaut opened the match with a break of 127 and closed it out with a 109 in what was a stunning four frames of snooker.

His 16-year-old opponent actually had a chance to win the second frame, but Trump secured it and went on to 256 unanswered points to end the match.

‘It’s always special, it doesn’t happen that often, for me anyway,’ Trump told Eurosport of his maximum break.

‘The nerves you get, doesn’t compare to anything else in snooker, even winning tournaments is nothing, on a maximum you’re shaking out there.

‘It’s always pleasing to make one, especially on the TV as well. It doesn’t matter if there’s a crowd there or not, the 147 is still special, even in practice if you make it.

‘It’s sort of 10 minutes of perfection, so it’s nice to get that under the belt.

‘It was as near perfection as you can probably play, you can’t really be criticising yourself after you play like that.

‘I was especially proud in the last frame, normally after a max you’re a bit nervy, but I made a really good break. All aspects of my game were there.’

Trump’s effort is the fourth maximum of the season already, with Ryan Day and John Higgins making 147 at the Championship League and Shaun Murphy matching the effort at the German Masters qualifiers last week.

It is almost two years since the Juddernaut made his last max, having knocked one in at the German Masters qualifiers himself in December 2018.

Ronnie O’Sullivan leads the way in terms of maximums with 15, followed by Stephen Hendry and John Higgins on 11 each.

Ding Junhui, Stuart Bingham and Shaun Murphy have each made six and now Trump goes level with Tom Ford on five.
