Matthew Selt produced a remarkable miscue at the Championship League Snooker with no contact made with the black he was attempting to pot.
The 35-year-old was taking on Scott Donaldson in his second Group 2 Round Robin match of the day when the miscue occurred.
Selt somehow chipped the cue ball over the black entirely, very nearly potting it straight in, but skipping it back up the table in bizarre fashion.

David Hendon, on commentary at the time, simply said in response: "Wow!"
Co-commentator Phil Yates, added: "A miscue like that, at any point, is really disruptive to the mind."
Earlier in the day, Selt was cueing much better as he beat Gary Wilson 3-1 in his opening match of Group 2.
