18. There were 2 "China International" played in 1999, one in March and one in December. In the March edition, all 4 winners in the quarters were Scottish. In the December edition, something special happened in the semis, Ronnie lost frame 2 having got three consecutive misses (but went on to win the tournament all the same)

27. Marco Fu methinks.
