Haikou World Open Qualifiers Day 4 - Marco Fu Stormed With Maximum

Pride of Hong Kong Marco Fu was through to Last 32 of Haikou World Open with a highlight of making a maximum break .

Marco Fu made his second maximum break
Hong Kong cueman made his second maximum break on his way to beat Matthew Selt by 5-2. His 147 came in the sixth frame when Matthew Selt left him a fair chance eventually turned out to be a maximum break. The tenth black he played was awesome. This is Fu's second maximum break after 2000 Scottish Masters against Ken Doherty (147 was the only frame he won).  Congratulations to Marco!

Impressive victory for Robert Milkins as he whitewashed Ryan Day to qualify another China ranking tournament. Marcus Campbell saw off Alfie Burden 5-3 from 0-3 down to win five frames in a row.
