  • When Ronnie O'Sullivan got to know about the prize money for the maximum, he decided to make a point. The amount of £10,000 was apparently "too cheap" for a maxi and so scored a 146 instead!Opinions are divided if it was the right thing to do.Did he make his point? Yes.Is it the most controversial break in snooker history? Probably! Will anyone or rather can anybody have done something like this? NO.

    The prize for a 147 used to be too high, but they reduced it because Ronnie kept doing 147s frequently.

    For those who don’t understand. The max score for snooker is 147, and to achieve that you must first sink all 15 red balls with each red followed immediately by the black ball.
    When you sink a red ball you can nominate the black or colored balls to sink next to maximize your points.
    The point system is as follows Black (7), Pink (6), Blue (5), Brown (4), Green (3), Yellow (2).
    The black and colored balls reset every time they are sunk. So it’s possible to go from Red to Black 15 times in a row to give you 120 points. Then after all the reds are gone you sink the colors in ascending order of points ending with the black ball giving you 147.
    With every red ball sunk you need to put the que ball in a position to sink the black for maximum points as the black yields 7. This will give you a perfect score.
    At the 6:00 minute mark he purposely puts the que ball in a position to sink the pink instead of the black. Meaning his max score can only be 146 because he purposely chose the 6 point pink over 7 point black.

    it's not hard to tell that Ronnie's interests are not money prizes but a sense of joy when he achieved 146.
