Williams certainly lived up to his moniker of ‘The Welsh Potting Machine’ as he put on a show-and-a-half last evening

The evergreen Mark Williams was in sensational scoring form during a recent snooker exhibition held at the Indian Queens Club in Saint Columb Major, Cornwall.

Three-time world champion Williams enjoyed a superb 2023/24 campaign, defeating Mark Selby in the final to win his third British Open title in October and denying Ronnie O’Sullivan in the showpiece match of the recent Tour Championship in April. His 25th and 26th ranking titles of an already illustrious career, 49-year-old Williams is still currently ranked inside the world’s top 10.

The professional season may be over, but the Welsh legend has now turned his attention to the exhibition circuit, starting with a two-night tour of the south-west county.

Williams underlined his credentials as one of the sport’s best and most entertaining acts on the scene, as he produced a memorable spectacle for those in attendance on Thursday night, constructing a plethora of high breaks throughout the session.

In just 11 frames played, Williams compiled two maximum 147 breaks and was on course to making a third before missing the 15th red with the rest.

Across the night, Williams hit a brace of 147s, five other century breaks including a 134, and further efforts of 92 and 65.

Williams is back in action this evening (Friday) for an exhibition at the Penventon Hotel in Redruth.
