List of 9-round wins by over 60

From Countdown

This list includes all the 9-round wins by over 60, not including 60 itself. The first 9-round game was broadcast on 2 November 1982 and the last regular one on 20 September 2001 (six more were played in the following two years in the Junior Championship and Ladies' Championship). In that time, just over 3,000 episodes were broadcast, in which there were 10 9-round wins by over 60. It is significant as it is the equivalent of a win by over 100 in the 15-round format.

The first occurrence was on 6 December 1983, in which Mark Nyman beat Ted Wiles by 61 points.

The biggest winning margin is 80 points, held by Mark Preston on 19 August 1987.
