BROOKSHAW – MAXIMUM MAN
Steve Brookshaw from Plymouth at the age of 45 years and 23 days could be forgiven for thinking that his days of achieving one of Snookers significant targets was slipping away from him. Having surpassed the 200 break mark at English Billiards some years back is proof that he is indeed a master of concentration and touch, for these are skills one must acquire to make a break of this size at the grandfather of cue sports. However, the 147 Maximum break at Snooker requires precision, nerve and fearlessness, tinged with just a little good fortune. Today, on the 29th December 2011, Brookshaw realised the dream by completing a 147 break at Snooker. He is now, without doubt, a ‘Master Cueman’. Well done Steve.
