| There is no prize for it, but the triple is defined as winning three times in one week. It's a rare event, let's look at the odds:
Assuming 8 tables per session and all players of equal ability, then the odds of someone winning the ‘tripple' are 1/8 to the power of two, or one in 64; so you can expect it about every 6 months or so, depending upon the number of players (obviously it's much easier to win the tripple in the low season when there are only three or four tables).
The odds of two independent people (who only partnered each other on one occasion and obviously play in different directions on the other two occasions (as with Dave & Terry 21-25/5/05) both winning in the same week are 1/8 to the power of three, or one in 512; so once in 5 years or so.
Anyway, here's a list of triple winners. I hope it's complete, let me know if there are any omissions.
