so if you think of all these Events in a equal standard then
World Title Worth 3
UK and Masters worth 2
everything else worth 1
so last season
Ronnie O'Sullivan 6
Mark Williams 5
Mark Selby 2
John Higgins 2
Ryan Day 2
I actually think it's a little more complicated than that. It also depends on when you win your tournaments, and how well you do in the tournaments that you don't win.
So for example, if you win two tournaments in September but to nothing (say, not going beyond the second round) in any other tournaments, that's not as good as say winning one tournament but getting to regular QF/SF/Finals throughout the season.
Obviously the two wins are better for your record books but in terms of being player of the season I'd put the second example higher on the list.
By your reckoning you have Ronnie top on your calculations (and I pretty much agree with your valuation of tournaments) but MJW was consistently getting to the last 8 throughout the season as well which for me gives him an extra point or two.
I'd also suggest that the Worlds is worth 4 (I think most would agree it's twice as important as even the UK and Masters).
