Explanation of the Point System

In the Crucible Contest points are awarded for correct matchwinners. The point score for each "hit" starts at one point in the first round and increases throughout the tournament. You can get a maximum of 16 points in each round and 80 for the whole competition. In 1996 the winner had 70 points. Can you beat that score?

Points for correct matchwinners in each round:

Round Points
Round 1 1
Round 2 2
Quarter-finals 4
Semi-finals 8
Final 16
