Wilson had been aiming for the bottom-right corner in the ninth frame, but in an incredibly rare shot, managed to get it in the middle pocket.
Opponent Mark Allen would go on to win the match 6-3 but fans were left talking about Wilson's shot.
One said: "That was quite an extraordinary shot by Kyren Wilson, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before."
A second added: "That’s was definitely fluke of the season by Kyren Wilson, I’m sure that will be one for A Question of Sport."

After the game he told Eurosport: "It was another poor start from me to be honest.
"I just like giving people 2-0 head starts at the minute!
"I played pretty well after that, I didn't miss too many balls. Yeah, very happy with the way I played after that.
"I'm just in a good place. If I miss a few shots out there it’s not affecting me at all. I'm just getting ready for the next one.
"And I wish I could have done this a long time ago. How many times do you beat yourself up? At the minute, I'm just not doing that.
"I know I missed a few balls early on but I know my games in good shape, so I wasn't panicking. I was just looking forward to my next chance."
