Is he also the first person to come through deciding frames in every round?

Looks quite likely. And if he played Selby in the 2nd round again which is quite possible atm I can see him owning Selby again like he did in 2015.

Looking at the rankings Perry needs to do something major to get in the 16 now with Day and McGill in the Players Championship

Perry has had plenty of opportunities "to do something major". Only has himself to blame if he's not in the 16.

He said it should never be a ranking event and that he feels embarrassed that he has benefited from it.

Unfortunately, it's a ranking event whether we like it or not.

It shouldn't be, and you're right it is rubbish. The Dave Gilbert incident should prove why this shouldn't be a ranking event.

But Barry Hearn knows best. Or at least thinks he does. He won't change his mind.

World Snooker rankings beg to differ. I don't know if demented ramblings by 3 or 4 posters on a snooker forum undermine this fact though.

Anthony McGill won the Shoot Out title in Watford in the first year that the one-frame format has been counted as a ranking event.

The 26-year-old Scotsman defeated Xiao Guodong of China 67-19 in the final to take the £32,000 prize money.

McGill, who beat Shaun Murphy in the semi-final, claimed his second ranking title after last year's Indian Open.

"It is a coin-toss tournament," he said. "You never know what can happen but I'm extremely happy."

The four-day event features matches played over a single frame that last for a maximum of 10 minutes. The players must take no more than 15 seconds on a shot for the first five minutes and 10 seconds for the last five.

"In no way on God's earth should this be a ranking tournament," said McGill.

There was controversy in one of the quarter-finals when a shot from eventual finalist Xiao, 28, was allowed to stand despite him overrunning the shot clock, because crowd noise meant both the referee and marker were unable to hear the beeps of the clock.

Three or Four posters on an internet forum?

The guy who won it said it shouldn't be a ranking event. Or are his ramblings demented, as well?
