When Ronnie O'Sullivan got to know about the prize money for the maximum, he decided to make a point. The amount of £10,000 was apparently "too cheap" for a maxi and so scored a 146 instead!

Opinions are divided if it was the right thing to do.

Did he make his point? Yes.
Is it the most controversial break in snooker history? Probably!
Will anyone or rather can anybody have done something like this? NO.
