The maximum normal break; it can be higher if the break begins with a 
free ball followed by potting the black and clearing the rest in the 
normal way for a maximum, giving a 155 break. I dont know if this has 
ever arisen; does anyone know? It is theoretically possible to begin a 
break in this way and then miss the final red/black, thus leaving the 
break at 147. I wonder if this should happen in a top competition the 
sponsors would pay out the special prize for a 147.
