With Turning Stone XXVIII coming up this week, I thought I'd re-post my list of the winners and runners-up, and the score of the Finals match, from each of the previous 27 events.

The 27 Turning Stone events have been won by 15 different players. Bustamante, Van Boening, and Immonen have each won twice, Shaw has won 5 times, and Archer has won 6 times.

The 27 events have seen 21 different players finish second. Hatch, Sossei, Immonen, and Morra have each been runner-up twice, and Morris 3 times.

The player list on the Joss Tour website is dated 8/1/2017, so I do not know whether it is still current. But, based on that list, 7 of the previous event winners (who have accounted for 18 wins) and 8 of the runners-up (who have accounted for 13 second-place finishes) are scheduled to play this week. Their names are shown in blue.

No hill/hill Finals, and no shut-outs or 13-1's. The Finals loser has won 7.0 games on average.

Archer rules with six wins at the Stone....
...but Shaw is the king of the Stone...
...five wins with a lot less starts.

Great info as always.

Any way of checking to see how many winners went undefeated through the whole tournament, and how many came from the one loss side?

Also to all the current buzz surrounding earl making the mosconi cup squad. If earl makes the finals of turning stone I'm jumping shotgun on his bandwagon

12 undefeated (events, without the Roman numerals, # 2, 5, 6, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 24, 26, 27)
15 from the losers' side

And if I'm not mistaken, aren't all of Jayson Shaws 5 wins from the undefeated side??

So that number was a little more lopsided before Shaw.

I remember Jim Boeheim, coach of Syracuse basketball, dislike for the top team double bye during the big East tournament because he said his team would be at a disadvantage having to sit for two days, while the other teams play.

I suppose that translates to pool here are the turning stone with the wait in the hot seat then to a long race to 13, while the one loss player stays at the table.

It's also an aspect I dig about Shaw's game in that he can leave the arena and when he comes back, no matter how long, he's ready to go. The guy has great sport psychology in his arsenal of weapons.

Shaw's competitive attitude reminds me of why the Romans built Hadrian's Wall. :eek:

The only in-the-money finishes I find for him in the AzB database are:

TS II -- 17th/24th
TS III -- 3rd
TS VI -- 7th/8th
TS XII -- 25th/32nd

Thanks for that. I am lazy to not look.
I know AZB doesn't have all of your other stats available. Thanks for what you do

Shaw won his first two TS titles (XXII and XXIII) from the losers' side, and was undefeated in his most recent three (XXIV, XXVI, and XXVII).

Before Shaw's first win, the record stood at 9 undefeated winners and 12 from the losers' side; it's 3-3 since then.

After the first 17 events, it was close at 9-8. Then 6 winners in a row came from the losers' side to take it to 9-14. But 3 of the last 4 have been undefeated, taking us to the current 12-15.

do y'all know there's a warmup event at the new Salt City Billiards in Syracuse, NY?
They just opened this summer after the old site burned down in February.

SVB vs. Jayson Shaw challenge match before a $100 entry tournament on Wednesday.

Go see it!
