Michael Holt hasn't played him 13 times in big events. So you're being either deliberately disingenuous or simply making a very weak point.
Twice now you've just said "Higgins was the greater player" without justification. Just an opinion, but an opinion stated as fact. Something you propose as fact but offer zero justification for. You said the purpose of the competition was to raise interesting debate, then offer zero.
The competition appears to offer player-versus-player situations where we are supposed to decide who would win the given match, but then you say its not about that. If it's not about that then why are players going head to head in this competition, why not have one single poll of everyone where people can vote for their winner.
If your intention is for people to vote on who won the most tournaments then, surely, we could all just look at wikipedia.
If you don't want to debate your autocratic opinion on this match, then perhaps you could at least give people a clue as to what it is we're supposed to be voting on? Who wore the snazziest clothing? Then why isn't Dominic Dale in the running?
