Postby Pink Ball

This 'prize' goes to the player who loses in the first round to a player who loses in the second round to a player who loses in the quarter-final to a player who loses in the semi-final to the player who loses the final. This year's 'winner' is Li Hang.

Based on the current format which has been in place since 1982, here are the previous "champions".

Roll of "honour"
2019: Li Hang (China)
2018: Mark Selby (England)
2017: Judd Trump (England)
2016: Robbie Williams (England)
2015: Alan McManus (Scotland)
2014: Ding Junhui (China)
2013: Stephen Maguire (Scotland)
2012: Liang Wenbo (China)
2011: Joe Perry (England)
2010: Marcus Campbell (Scotland)
2009: Rory McLeod (England)
2008: Nigel Bond (England)
2007: Ken Doherty (REPUBLIC OF IRELAND)
2006: Joe Swail (Northern IRELAND)
2005: Barry Pinches (England)
2004: Dominic Dale (Wales)
2003: Joe Swail (Northern IRELAND)
2002: Paul Hunter (England)
2001: David Roe (England)
2000: Ronnie O'Sullivan (England)
1999: Jimmy White (England)
1998: James Wattana (Thailand)
1997: Jimmy White (England)
1996: Mick Price (England)
1995: Ken Doherty (REPUBLIC OF IRELAND)
1994: Dennis Taylor (Northern IRELAND)
1993: Shaun Mellish (England)
1992: Mark Johnston-Allen (England)
1991: Steve Newbury (Wales)
1990: Tony Drago (Malta)

1985: Ray Edmonds (England)
1984: Tony Meo (England)

The only multiple "champions" are Ken Doherty (1995 & 2007); Joe Swail (2003 & 2006); Jimmy White (1997 & 1999).

No player has "defended" the "title".

Nationality breakdown:
England (20); Scotland (3); Northern IRELAND (3); Wales (3); China (3); REPUBLIC OF IRELAND (2); Malta (1); Thailand (1); Australia (1); & South Africa (1).

It has been "won" six times by players who have also won the World Championship: Mark Selby (2018), Ken Doherty (1995 & 2007), Ronnie O'Sullivan (2000), Dennis Taylor (1994), and Ray Reardon (1986).

I don't like the fact you've put Ireland in capital letters and everyone else in lower case. That's put me off this thread from the get-go.
