Video: "World's first maximum break by a woman" and she's Thai aged just 19!

A video has been posted to YouTube that shows 19 year old Thai snooker sensation Nutcharut "Mink" Wongharuthai complete a maximum 147 break. 

 

It was Mink's first ever maximum as she calmly stroked in 15 reds with blacks and all the colors. She was practicing with a man at the Hi-End Snooker Club in northern Bangkok on Monday.

 

 

The Eurosport website reporting on her achievement quoted "World Women's Snooker" as saying that they believed it was a first for a female player, though such records were difficult to verify.

 

Mink is ranked 8th in the world and appeared in two ranking finals in her breakthrough season in 2018. 

 

In September she appeared as a wildcard beside the men at the World Six Ball Snooker Championships at the convention hall at Central Lat Prao, Bangkok. She lost in the first round on that occasion.

 

Mink's achievement will be a welcome boost for both women's snooker and the Hi-End Club. It was announced on Friday that the Women's World Snooker Championship will be held there from June 20th to 23rd this year. 

 

Getting 147 is the "Holy Grail" of snooker. While many of the male professionals have recorded maximums in televised events and other male players have recorded hundreds in practice it seems to be new ground for women in the sport.

Not in a competitive game, doesn't count. Nice try but no cigar.

Good question. Where are the feminists when you need them?

You are right, and I would guess there is made some maximum's in practice throughout the years by female players. 

Anyway, its just to keep up the good work, and for what it's worth; Congrats 🙂

Why knock the girl?

She did good, and you are mocking her shame on you.

Not mocking, just stating a fact. Will it go down in the WPBSA records as a maximum break?

Maybe a cigarillo?  Yes it was during a practicing session, but still, it's not easy. In fact, it's most about fluke.

But is on camera for everyone to see. People remember what they see. They don't read record books !  Best of luck with her future career.

Sensational. I am surprised that there are not more women playing at a competitive level.

It is a sport that does not need to be gender separated

I think she was very good.

Wasn't Steve Davis the first 147 break on television? That must have been a few decades ago too.

 

I suppose jokes about losing balls, or not knowing whether to go for the pink or the brown wouldn't be relevant then.
