The 147 came in the first frame of Ford's third round match against Matthew Stevens at the Princess Hotel in Sofia. It was worth a £2,500 bonus from the rolloing prize for PTC events for the World No 25 from Leicester (providing it is not equalled).
He potted 15 reds with blacks and all the colours to delight the Bulgarian crowd in the main arena, and the break was covered live by Eurosport.
It's the 92nd official maximum in snooker history and fourth of the season after one each from Stuart Bingham, Ken Doherty and John Higgins. Ford had made one previous 147, at the 2007 Grand Prix during a match against Steve Davis, having discharged himself from hospital just a few hours earlier after suffering from gastroenteritis.
