Most Tourney Wins by Player

Data on screen printed 09/23/2021. Latest tourney in DB is as of 08/15/2021.

Number of distinct winners in Pro Tour history: 41

Note: there are several notes to keep in mind while looking at these IRT tourney win counts:

  • In the late 70s/early 80s there were MANY "unsanctioned" tourneys won by players of the era (Hogan mostly) that were not officially recorded into the NRC match database. We have no way of capturing these results.
  • The 1989-90 season is almost entirely missing from the history books and the database, meaning that the tourney winners from that season are all missing. Cliff finished #1 that year and is likely missing a few tourney wins.
  • Much was made of Kane's 71'st victory when it happened, which put him over top of Swain for career wins. We now know that Swain has at least 3-4 more tourney wins than what was reported at the time, but Kane's achievement was based on the best knowledge at the time. This of course is now moot because Kane has 120+ career wins, well above where Hogan/Swain may have ever achieved.
  • One of Beltran's wins occurred during the 2002-3 season in an event in McLean, VA that awarded all qualifiers equal rankings points on account of poor court conditions. The players continued to compete for additional prize money but curtailed their competitiveness to avoid injury.
  • The '?' winner is a placeholder for the final of the 2005 New Orleans tourney, cancelled by Hurricane Katrina. It won't ever be replayed. This result is NOT included in the total number of distinct winners above. The IRT has never returned to New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
  • Samuel Murray became the 41th and most recent distinct winner in Jan 2021 with his win at the Suivant Consulting Grand Slam
