From Countdown

Jump to: navigation, search

This list of 9-round scores over 75 includes all the game scores over 75 (including 75 itself) in the history of the 9-round format. The first 9-round show was shown on the 2nd of November 1982, the last on 20th of September 2001. In this period just more than 3,000 9-round shows were shown and the highest score ever achieved was 83, first by Stephen Balment in 1987 and second by Allan Saldanha in 1996, most notably because it was the Supreme Championship and he was playing Series 6 winner Darryl Francis.

Harvey Freeman was the only player to ever make three 9-round scores over 75. The only players to make two were Allan Saldanha, Mike Whiteoak and Scott Mearns.
