VIDEO: Gutted snooker star blows 147 and €62,000 with agonising miss on final black

Expect a consoling call from Ken Doherty.

Thepchaiya Un-Nooh was on course for a 147 break and a hefty bonus cheque of €62,000 (£44,000) at the UK Championships in York.

The Thai snooker star had sunk 35 consecutive balls and left himself with a relatively simple black to complete the maximum break.

At 112, Un-Nooh showed unreal nerve to sink the final red:

That pot provided momentum that took him all the way to the final black. Then, life got complicated:

Following his match, which he lost 6-2 to Neil Robertson, Un-Nooh was informed of his costly miss.

"44,000 pounds?" he repeated in disbelief.

"You should have told me before I potted the black ... I have nothing to say. I got 15 black and then missed the black number 16. So disappointed. Too much pressure on the black.

"In the eighth frame I was still thinking about the black ball, that black ball make me have nightmare tonight."

Previous players to miss high-pressure blacks include Doherty and Mark Selby.
