This time about Parrott ,Ebdon and Doherty.
All three have won the World Championship once and been runner up on other occasions. They are also quite similar in terms of how many triple crown finals they lost. Parrott for example lost all of his three Masters finals. Doherty lost all of his three UK Finals. Doherty, Ebdon have lost two of their three world finals.
They are all quite unlucky, having faced multiple all time greats at their peak. Parrott in his prime played peak Davis and peak Hendry while Ebdon and Doherty had it even tougher by facing peak Hendry/ROS/Higgins/MJW.
Unlike Doherty though Parrott and Ebdon have also won the UK Championship and both ended up winning 3 more rankers than Doherty (9 vs 6).
On the other side Doherty has won 16 non-ranking titles while Ebdon has just 4 and Parrott 7 which is some kind of difference you have to say. And many believe that Ken had a higher peak level than Peter and John.
So what do you think?
