It was a difficult last black for the potter from Bristol as it was a thin cut but it just wriggled in.

After, it was a short flurry of form for Pengfei who pegged the score line back to 4 - 3, but Judd managed to get over the line to book his place into the quarter-final and the defending champion is on course still to win back to back ranking titles this season. That's the 12th maximum this season, beating the 11 made in 2011, and Trump becomes the seventh player to have made three career 147s in snooker history.

This is the third maximum of the China Open's history, with Stephen Maguire and Neil Robertson both making maximums in 2008 and 2010 respectively. The likes of current players Stuart Bingham and Neil Robertson also have three career maxis, who are currently in the top 16 with Trump.

China's Zhang Anda originally had the high break of 140 and was on for the £2,000 high break prize in Beijing before Trump had both the high break and maximum prize. Watch Trump's first professional 147 in 2013 at the Antwerp Open, which was the 99th maxi before Mark Selby made the 100th maximum in the UK Championship, in the video below...
