Forgot add some stats yesterday (doubt anyone minded though).Anyway, here are the stats that were meant for Friday, the decider records of all 16 competitors next week:
Mark Selby 9/9 100%
Marco Fu 1/1 100%
Judd Trump 1/1 100%
Neil Robertson 2/3 67%
Ronnie O'Sullivan 9/15 60%
Stephen Maguire 3/5 60%
Shaun Murphy 2/4 50%
John Higgins 1/4 25%
Mark Davis 0/1 0%
Barry Hawkins 0/1 0%
Joe Perry 0/1 0%
Ricky Walden 0/1 0%
Stuart Bingham 0/2 0%
Ding Junhui 0/2 0%
Mark Allen 0/3 0%
Robert Milkins 0/0 (Debut this week)
As you can see not many players have been in a lot of Masters deciders, with the exception of Selby and ROS. Selby clearly has the best record having not lost any deciders since he first started playing here (he's also the best out of all the Masters competitors ever).
Few other things stand out. Higgins has a bad history with Masters deciders, the only one he's won being that 2006 final, especially for someone who usually did so well in deciders in other events. Ding has a poor record as well, as does Mark Allen, who has the worst decider record here and is second to only Stevens (0/6
)out of all the Masters competitors ever.
And speaking of deciders, I just want to add these little facts:
Maximum number of deciders in the Masters is seven, achieved on four occasions, 1986, 2002, 2008 and 2013.
The minimum is zero, achieved once in 2012.
The mean number of deciders is roughly 3.5.
