It's 100 years to the day since Tom Reece completed the highest break in the history of billiards - 499,135.
His break began on June 3, 1907. Spare a thought for his opponent, Joe Chapman, who merely turned up every day for five weeks to sit in the non-striker's chair and watch.
It led to the rules being changed so that 'cradle' cannons were outlawed.
