Thepchaiya Un-Nooh produced as good a performance as you are likely to see in a best-of-11 game, hitting in five centuries in a 6-1 demolition of Stephane Hendry at the UK Championship.

The Thai star is capable of brilliant, and while he doesn’t always show it, he was at his best in York as he demolished the seven-time world champion.

Breaks of 136, 129, 107, 106, 100, 59 and 52 were made by the man known as F1, with Hendry managing to nip the fourth frame of the match with a break of 57 himself.

Hendry scored 64 points in the frame he won, but just one more point in the other six frames, but there wasn’t much to do against the Thai’s quality.

F1 also lived up to its nickname, ending the game with an incredible average shooting time of just 14.2 seconds.

Thepchaiya becomes only the fourth man in billiards story of five centuries in a best-of-11 match after Fergal O’Brien, Judd Trump and Matt Selt.

The breathtaking performance reserves Thepchaiya a place in the last 64 where he will meet Zhao Xintong or Yuan Sijun.
