However, I won't be able to do this all on my lonesome so I've decided to make this, what I believe to be, the Island's first 'citizen science' project. If you want to take part, if you see a fluke in a match, come here and post it. To keep things simple I think we should just focus on fluked pots rather than fluked position. An example of which would be a player going for a pot, missing the clearly intended pot, and fluking an 'on' ball into a pocket. Equally the player could be playing safe, or getting out of a snooker and makes an unintentional legal pot.
In order to keep track of things I would like each fluke report to have the following information:
Frame Number: e.g. Frame 2
Score of fluker AFTER fluke:
Ball fluked: e.g. red
Any additional information you think relevant (e.g. the fluked pot was actually bad luck, and leaves them snookered). It might also be good to note if the fluke results in winning the frame (or match for that matter), or possibly noting the size of the break.
I'll try to do as much of this myself as I can, but I'd be grateful to anyone who wants to take part.
No matter how the tournament shapes up, we won't be able to really say whether or not Trump is a talentless hack who's fluked his way to the top of the snooker world - there just aren't enough frames played. But we will be able to say who is the luckiest player of the 2020 Tour Championship!
