Stuart Bingham has become the second player in this year’s China Open to record a stunning maximum break.

The 2015 world champion made the break during his second round match against Ricky Walden. The maximum came in the seventh frame which put Bingham 4-3 ahead.

Remarkably, Bingham’s maximum came less than 24 hours after Ronnie O’Sullivan made a stunning 147 in his shock 6-2 defeat to Elliot Slessor.

It means the 41-year-old now is entitled to share the £42,000 jackpot for the maximum break and largest break of the tournament. Both players will win an extra £21,000 should no other player make a 147 this Beijing.

This was Bingham’s fourth career maximum and it’s the 138th maximum break in snooker history and seventh of the season.
