Kreative Dental Ruhr Open 2014

Shaun Murphy made his fourth competitive 147 in his 4 - 0 win over Robert Milkins in the final of the Kreative Dental Ruhr Open 2014 in Germany. This break made him the first player to make three competitive maximums in a calendar year, and yet he came incredibly close to making three on the same day. He cleared the 15 reds with blacks against both Joe Swail in the last 16, and against Mark Williams in the quarter-final. Against Swail he failed at the blue for a break of 129, and missed the green against Williams for a break of 122.
