LIANG Wenbo dramatically booked his place at the World Snooker Championships with a terrific final-frame clearance in qualifying.

The 33-year-old, who has moved to Boars Hill and trains at Oracle Pool & Snooker Club in Abingdon, came from behind to beat Fergal O'Brien 10-9.

And his seventh Crucible appearance was sealed in real style, with a 141 clearance.

Having led 5-2 at one point in the final round of qualifying, Liang trailed 8-7 heading into the final stages.

But he won three of the final four frames to secure a slot in the main draw at Sheffield, ahead of the rearranged tournament starting on Friday.

Liang's best result at the Crucible was on his debut in 2008, when he reached the quarter-finals.
