Stephen Maguire's Incredible Fouled Trick Shot Shocked Neil Robertson

Stephen Maguire's Incredible Fouled Trick Shot Shocked Neil Robertson

Stephen Maguire pulled off one of the greatest trick shots in snooker history in January, during the 2020 Masters, unfortunately though it was a foul.

Maguire was facing off against Neil Robertson in the first round when he pulled off an unreal double fluke.

The Scot hit a red and then skimmed his ball over a cluster of reds and it looked like he'd put too much on the shot.

However, the red bounced out of the pocket and then rolled back in with a tremendous amount of backspin.

The only blemish on the otherwise perfect shot is that the 39-year-old also potted the white ball.

Even Robertson couldn't believe what'd he'd seen his opponent pull off in their thrilling tactical battle.

Cameras managed to catch his immediate reaction following the move and it was hilarious.

Commentator Steve Davis described the shot as, "The most amazing shot in the history of snooker."

Even more thrilling, Maguire had come back from 5-1 down to defeat the 2012 Masters champion 6-5.

Fans on Twitter were quick to react to the unreal skill on show.




Maguire was stopped in the next round though as he was knocked out by David Gilbert, in a 6-2 loss.

Since then the five time ranking event winner has reached the last 32 of the World Grand Prix, last 16 of the Welsh Open and semi final of the Players' Championship, losing to Judd Trump in both the latter two.

What is the best trick shot you've seen played?
