Maximum breaks for Georgiou and Jones
MICHAEL Georgiou and Jamie Jones achieved the rare feat of their first maximum breaks at the Paul Hunter Classic in Furth, Germany, on Friday.
30-year-old Georgiou’s came during the second frame of his first roundmatch against German Umut Dikme, which saw the Cypriot win 4-2, before a 4-3 defeat in the last 64 against Zhang Yong of China. Welshman Jones secured his to go 2-1 up in his second-round match against compatriot Lee Walker, before going on to lose 4-2. Their 147s mean they will each be paid a £10,000 bonus.
