As a computer nerd someone's (snookerfan maybe?) mention of cuetracker caused me to calculate ELO-ratings for all of snooker history. ELO-ratings calculated by snookeranalyst.org are done based on winning frames, not matches, which makes no sense to me. That means that just winning a match is not enough, a high-rated players must always win by a large frame margin to improve.
First of all, current ELO-ratings for top 64 and their ELO-history for four years. The rectangle at top-left shows an approximation how their rating has changed recently (red=bad, green=good).
And then then the history. The graph shows snooker ELO ratings for every year since 1970 and the name for who is leading after the world championship.
That should be fun for any Ronnie fan
It also shows that the snooker quality has stayed at about the same level for 20 years, the best years being 2000-2005.
