Most points ever scored in single snooker frame leaves fans amazed as new record set

We've surely all had some gripping games of snooker with our mates down the pubs over the years - but a frame at the UK Championships has set a new record for the number of points scored in an impressive contest.

Mark Williams took on Ding Junhui of China in one of the quarter-finals at the Barbican Centre in York.

Junhui emerged victorious over the Welshman with a 6-5 win, having recovered from 2-0 and 5-4 down at two different stages of the snooker match as he had to fight back to ensure his place in the semi-finals.

But it was the eighth frame between the duo when Junhui was 4-3 up that has got fans talking and for a very good reason indeed as history was made.

Williams ended up beating Junhai in this particular frame by 101 points to 94 - and in so doing, the pair set a new world record for the highest score scored in any individual frame in the history of the sport at 195.

And snooker fans have been applauding the efforts of the duo after the new record was achieved, with many in awe of the frame.

@tincanfield posted: "Went from 62-41 to 76-94, over 37 mins, where the only legal ball potted was the yellow."

The TV commentator also praised the frame and the efforts of both players, saying: “Incredible. They had such a battle on the green.

"It was won by Williams, the frame has been won by Williams.”

Junhui has set up a semi-final with Judd Trump, while Ronnie O'Sullivan will face the victor of those two after the Rocket beat Hussein Vafaei of Iran with a comprehensive 6-2 victory, with the final taking place on Sunday and a prize of £250,000 up for grabs for the winner.
