The term total match centuries refers to the amount of century breaks made during an individual snooker match.
A century break is when a snooker player scores 100 or more points in a single visit to the table. To give some kind of perspective to what kind of achievement that would be, the maximum break is 147.
Certain snooker players are more well known for being able to rack up large breaks but even the best players of the world need the balls on table to be placed in a particular way to make a century break.
The total match centuries bet is usually offered as an over/under selection. This means that the bettor needs to predict whether the two players in a specified match will manage more or fewer centuries than the bet number, for example 1.5 or 2.5. There is also the potential for a bet predicting the exact amount of century breaks made with an individual price offered.
This bet is similar to the 147 maximum break markets but gives the players a little more chance to achieve the required breaks and therefore the odds are slightly shorter. Century breaks are not very common though so it is a tricky market to predict.
The most century breaks achieved in a single match is seven – a record shared by Stephen Hendry and Ding Junhui. Stephen Hendry managed to make six centuries in just eight frames in the final of the 1994 UK Championship.
A century in snooker is a score of 100 or more points in a single visit to the table. This can be achieved by potting multiple reds and blacks, or through a combination of a red ball plus several colors. A player who scores 100 or more points in one visit is said to have made a ‘century break’. This feat is considered impressive, as re-racking the balls after each visit makes it difficult to score high amounts in one turn.
A Century Break is a term used in the game of snooker, which refers to a continuous run of 100 points or more within one visit at the table. This is achieved when all 15 red balls are potted and then each colour is potted in turn in accordance with the rules of the game, equaling an overall score of 100+. Achieving a Century Break is considered an extremely difficult feat and players must demonstrate maximum concentration, skill, and accuracy in order to achieve it.
Among snooker players, a century break is a break totaling at least 100 points made in one session. Snooker players who score centuries are said to be the best in the world because it requires them to pot at least 25 consecutive balls.
