In both cases, the losing player had 83% of their opponents score.
10-8 would be the nearest equivalent score in a best of 19.
Of course 18-15 is a close game!
It isn't the equivalent of 6-5. If a player loses 6-5 they may have been one ball from winning the match. That isn't the case with 18-15.
6-0 can also be six 50/50 frames that all go one way. What's your point?
No frame is 50/50 as no frame ever ends in a tie....
With your analysis an 18-15 can be very one sided if the player who wins makes 18 centuries and the player who loses, wins all of his frames on the black!
Firstly, you know full well what I mean by 50/50. I mean hard fought and could go either way. You just being pedantic to make an argument out of it.
Secondly, there's no way an 18-15 match can be considered one sided.
