Marco Fu hits 147 maximum in Masters opener

London: Hong Kong`s Marco Fu hit a 147 maximum break on the first night of the Masters at London`s Alexandra Palace on Sunday, the third of his career.

The 37-year-old`s stunning display allowed him to open up a 3-1 lead in the best-of-11-frame contest against England`s Stuart Bingham before going on to complete a 6-3 win.

Fu will face either defending champion Ronnie O`Sullivan or Ricky Walden in the quarter-finals.

Fu`s previous 147s came against Ken Doherty at the Scottish Masters in 2000 and in World Open qualifying in January 2012, when Matt Selt was his opponent.

Earlier, Shaun Murphy reached the last eight with a 6-5 win over Mark Selby.
