This edition had a fair bit of input from Rudy Bauwens, who is a commentator for Dutch Eurosport. He did a lot of checking on the career played/won/lost stats and the money list - on which he duly pointed out I'd used the 1975 prize money for the 1979 tournament. Most of the sections below are his work/suggestions, too, except the head-to-heads, which only I'm mad enough to attempt.

What's new?

Image
The biggest addition in this version is the complete head-to-head records at the Masters. 27 pages' worth.

Also ...
Image
Centuries in the opening frame ...

Image
Centuries in the concluding frame, including deciders ...

Image
Centuries in consecutive frames.

Image
Small section showing winners by nation.

Draft for the 2022 version. This will be updated again before next year, but I'm posting it now in case you're bored and want something to read.

Includes updated scores and tables for the 2022 event, and also new written sections on 147s, selection of wild cards, and background changes to the tournament after Benson & Hedges ceased sponsorship in 2003.

Also, other random trivia. I'm still trying to resolve the mystery of where the first trophy disappeared to - it seems it was dumped after the 1988 event for the second one which was eventually awarded to Stephen Hendry. I'm hoping the programmes will answer this ... but in the meantime, some of the updates below:
