There is a correlation "Good" ↔ "Fast".
(That doesn't mean all fast players are good and all slow are bad)

Just have a look at current season (I don't have data for previous one).
With a bit more of 1000 matchs played by the 128 main tour players.

AST range % of Wins
15-20 55,91%
20-25 58,33%
25-30 40,85%
30-35 26,67%

I calculate with live data here : http://livescores.worldsnookerdata.com/ ... ndex/14089
With AST there is matchs played Win/Loss.
I add the number of wins of all players with AST >15 and <20, the number of MP and calculate the ratio.
Doing then the same for other ranges.

I see Gef.

I did not know that table existed.

Very interesting stats but the conclusion to draw is not as obvious as it may look.

1. Playing fast makes you better?
2. Better players keep good position so they do't need as much thinking time?
3. Weaker safety players end up in bad situations and need more thinking time?
4. Successful players are more confident and so play quicker?

Sure there are other considerations.

Good work sir.

I bet the average weight of snooker players has reduced over the years

The average plummeted after September 2013 for some reason.

Bit harsh - Lee was only overweight because of a problem with his hands that he had suffered with since childhood.
