List of 9-round scores under 10

From Countdown

Jump to: navigation, search

This list shows all the scores under 10 in a 9-round game. The first player to get under 10 was Fred Jean in Series 3. This would stand as the lowest ever score for nearly 4 years until John Brooks failed to score against Mark Preston. The 80 point difference was all the biggest differential of the 9-round era. 11 years later, Sylvia Pitman equalled Brooks' record by not scoring a single point. On this list, Neil Greenall is notable as being the only player to win a game before making the score under 10.
