Stuart Bingham made his second maximum break within the space of two months after recording a 147 against Thepchaiya Un-Nooh in the Champions League.
Just six weeks on from his maximum at the UK Championship, Bingham sunk the eighth 147 of his career during the second frame of his group match against Un-Nooh.
Bingham, the 2015 world champion, is behind only Ronnie O'Sullivan (15), Stephen Hendry and John Higgins (both 11) in terms of career maximum breaks.
