Chris Wakelin's 119 To Win The BetVictor Shoot Out

Williams Leads Century Stakes In Sheffield

Mark Williams currently tops the century charts at this year’s Betfred World Championship, having fired in eight tons thus far.

The Welshman’s top score for the event is a run of 140, which he compiled in round one against Jimmy Robertson.

However, it is his fellow member of the Class of 92 John Higgins who is in line for the £10,000 high break prize. The Scot became the fourth player in Crucible history to make a 146 break at the World Championship in his opening round win over Thepchaiya Un-Nooh

In total there have been 69 centuries this year, which is 17 shy of the all-time record of 86. We are now also just six tons away from the target of 75 set by Betfred, who will donate £25,000 to Jessie May if that figure is surpassed.
