SNOOKER FROM THE GODS

Stephen Maguire and Neil Robertson set a new record at Wembley today by between them making five successive centuries in their quarter-final match at the Masters.

This has never previously been done in a best of 11 frame match. Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O’Sullivan made five in a row between them in their best of 17 frames final at the 2003 British Open.

It’s been some standard at the quarter-final stage, with O’Sullivan v Ali Carter to come and what seems sure to be a great weekend.

There have now been 21 centuries so far this week compared to 23 in total last year and 26 in 2007.

For the first four years of the tournament, there weren’t any tons at all.

It's been stunning snooker and some thrilling matches too.
This is the best Masters for years so far.

Stephen is no longer "on fire" Maguire, he is now the Towering Inferno!!

Outstanding stuff again, I'd say that Maguire will take some beating but so will everyone it seems.
