It was the first maximum of the 28-year-old’s career, with his previous top break being 143.

It gave the world number 30 a 2-1 lead in his group match against fellow Englishman Elliot Slessor on Thursday.

O’Connor went on to win 3-2 at the Mattioli Arena in his hometown of Leicester.

It is the 11th maximum of the 2023-24 season – six-time world champion Steve Davis scored the first ever at the Lada Classic in 1982.

Four-time world champion Mark Selby, who like O’Connor is from Leicester, claimed the 100th official maximum at the 2013 UK Championship.

O’Connor is yet to qualify for the main draw of the World Championship or win a professional title, with his best performance coming in 2022, when he lost to Gary Wilson in the Scottish Open final.
