Does anyone know if there are video tapes of something this phenominal? I
would be interested in getting one.

This is Snooker  147 is the maximum  break without assistance from the
opponent.  Maximum breaks  are rare,  only  a very   limited number of
amateurs have ever done them and even among the pros it's noteworthy.

If this is true is probably the first time anybody  have done it twice
in one  match, it might even  be the first  time anybody  have done it
twice in one day.

It means Jimmy's in pretty good form!

147 is the perfect score in snooker, 15 reds and 15 blacks, plus the
colours.

An exhibition match means the players weren't playing seriously to win,
the tables might have been easy, the ref might have looked the other way
on a foul, &c. Still, two 147's in a best of 11 frames match or any
match, is something I haven't heard of before.
