    And finally, for 1 point:

    The matches in question for Eddie Charlton are his 13-5 defeat to Davis in 1983, his 13-6 defeat to Taylor in 1985, and his 13-12 defeat to Stevens in 1986. For Reardon it's his 13-2 defeat to Stevens in 1984 and his 16-5 defeat to Davis in 1985. For Griffiths it was his 13-5 defeat to Hendry in 1989, his 13-5 defeat to White in 1990, and his 13-8 defeat to Bond in 1994. And the new addition that's joined the group since the question was originally asked, Kyren Wilson in his 13-8 defeat to Gilbert in 2019, and his 18-8 defeat to O'Sullivan in 2020.

    Can you look at those matches and spot the obscure statistic I have in mind? It's something to do with the exact number of frames the losing player won on each occasion.

    No. It's actually something to do with losing rather than winning.

    Not quite. It's more to do with the end result rather than anything else.

    I can barely remember what the answer to the above question was, but since I don't like to leave things unfinished, let's bring this to a conclusion.

    A free hint for you, still for 2 points:

    The original question from two years ago stated that Eddie Charlton, Ray Reardon and Terry Griffiths were the only players who have had something rather obscure and trivial happen to them at the Crucible on more than one occasion. It's something to do with a particular result in matches over three sessions or longer. Since the question was asked, Kyren Wilson has joined that trio, and he did so when he lost the final in 2020.

    It is something only seeded players have a chance of doing. In fact, the lowest four seeds only have the chance to do it in the semi-finals or the final, so it's remarkable that Gilbert has managed it this year.
    Play on one table over in match longer than 25 frames?

    No. It does have something to do with losing in a particular way, but nothing to do with sessions.

    my brain hurts!

    Lost a session without winning a frame?

    Robertson and Maguire have not joined the players who have done "this" twice.

    For 3 points:

    A full list of players who have done this should help, including everyone who has only done it one time. Since the year 2000 we have Graeme Dott, Stephen Lee, Stephen Magurire, Neil Robertson, Ricky Walden, Marco Fu and Barry Hawkins. In the 90s we had Terry Griffiths (2x), Steve James and Darren Morgan. In the 80s we had Kirk Stevens, Bill Werbeniuk, Eddie Charlton (3x), Tony Knowles, David Taylor, Ray Reardon (2x), Dennis Taylor and Terry Griffiths. And in the 70s we just had Rex Williams. I hope I haven't left anyone out.

    Can you find the pattern?
