Day Two of the German Darts Grand Prix – Without Madars Razma and Adrian Lewis

It’s time for the second day of the German Darts Grand Prix.

Madars Razma could not do anything against James Wade, despite of a great 164 checkout. Besides that, once again Adrian Lewis flopped. He lost 6-5 against Yordi Meeuwisse, even though he was up 5-2.

Today the big guys will join in.

And even though the most of them are favorites in their matches, we still have some exciting matches today: Dave Chisnall against Darren Webster, Simon Whitlock against Keegan Brown and Jelle Klaasen against James Wade.

German Darts Grand Prix starts today – Madars Razma will give it a go

It’s time for German Darts Grand Prix, the second tournament of the European Tour.

Last week Marko Kantele made it to the second round of the European Darts Open. This weekend Madars Razma will try to make a result.

Unfortunately Madars has been paired with James Wade in the first round. James Wade played quite well in the European Darts Open, with a place in the semi-final. So it will, without a doubt, be a big task for Madars.

Besides James Wade and Madars Razma, the tournament will also see names as Max Hopp, Martin Schindler, Rowby-John Rodriguez, Peter Wright, Michael van Gerwen, Rob Cross and a lot of other great names compete.

We are up for Night Eight in Belfast

The eighth round of the Premier League will take off tonight in Belfast.

The SSE Arena in Belfast will be the place to be tonight. The Premier League has made it to Northern Ireland and there will be som great matches at tonights event.

Mensur Suljovic takes on Gary Anderson, both players could need some point, but for different reasons. With elimination night in next week, the Austrian could really need some points in the bottom. But Gary has the opportunity to enter the top four with two points tonight.

After that we will see Michael Smith against Gerwyn Price. Looks like a victory for Smith with Price’s bad form at the time.

The third match of the night will be the big dutch Klassieker. Raymond van Barneveld will possibly have a hard night against Michael van Gerwen, who just seems unstoppable at the time.

Daryl Gurney will face Rob Cross at the second to last match tonight. Gurney has the advantage of home.

The last match will be between Simon Whitlock and Peter Wright. Peter Wright looked like a man in-form at the European Darts Open, maybe he can continue the good form tonight? He does not have that much more chances to secure his live in the tournament.

Night Six of the Premier League

We have reached the sixth round of the Premier League, with a giant match in front of us.

Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham is the place to be tonight. The Premier League will have a lot of treats for us tonight, among other we have Raymond van Barnevel against Gary Anderson. The match between the two former world champions will hopefully be fantastic.

“I scraped the point last week and I’ve had no consistency in the Premier League so far,” admitted Anderson. “I’ve had a good couple of weeks and I want to keep that going because there’s still a long way to go.

We will also see Peter Wright trying to refind the form against Michael Smith. Shockingly Snakebite was demolished last week by Mensur Suljovic. It is also worth to mention, that Michael Smith lost his first match of this seasons Premier League last week against Rob Cross. An interesting match.

Besides the matches above, we also have Mensur Suljovic against Rob Cross, Gerwyn Price against Michael van Gerwen and last but not least, we have a repeat of the World Grand Prix Final in 2017 with Simon Whitlock against Daryl Gurney.

World Cup of Darts

PDC Nordic & Baltic

Selection procedure – World Cup of Darts.

Due to yearly variations in PDCNB tournament schedules and individual country selection deadlines it has been decided, after consultation with the PDC, to implement a uniform annual cut-off date for all Nordic and Baltic countries with regards to World Cup of Darts player selection.

The annual Cut-off date has been set as the 30th April.

The selection process used to determine which players will be invited to represent their country (if and when their country is chosen to be part of the tournament) is as follows:

  1. Highest placed PDC Tour Card Holders* and/or PDPA associate Members** on PDC Order of Merit.
  2. Highest placed PDC Tour Card Holders* and/or PDPA associate Members** on PDC European Tour Order of Merit.
  3. Highest placed non PDPA members on PDC or PDC European Tour Order of Merit.
  4. Players with highest total amount of points accumulated from competing in at least 6 PDCNB & Euro Tour events combined during previous 12 months (1st May & 30th April),

* Full PDPA Member
** Q-School entrants that did not achieve full tour status.

The selection process is built on preserving the integrity of the tournaments organised by the PDC and PDC Nordic & Baltic. Not only does it prioritise and reward players already committed to the PDC and PDPA, it also rewards players that have shown sustained commitment to the PDC Nordic & Baltic tour but as yet have not entered Q-School. The PDCNB tour is an excellent gateway to the world of professional Darts for all Nordic and Baltic players.

Premier League is back – The snow will not be a problem

We have reached the sixth night of the Premier League. This time in Leeds.

Beacuse of the cancellation last week, we still find Gerwyn Price and Daryl Gurney on the eliminationseats.

The two of them really needs points at this point of the tournament.

Daryl Gurney will face the new UK Open champion, Gary Anderson. It seems like a big task for Daryl Gurney, who did not look confident in his match against Kim Huybrechts in the UK Open.

Gerwyn Price had an acceptable UK Open, so maybe he will give Barney a great fight for the two points.

 

The most interesting match of the night is undoubtely the match between Rob Cross and Michael Smith. Smith has not last a match yet in this years Premier League, but Rob Cross looks like a man, who was refound the good form.

Besides the matches above we will also see Michael van Gerwen against the great surprise Simon Whitlock and last but not least we have Peter Wright against Mensur Suljovic.

Gary Anderson finally won the UK Open

Gary Anderson is the new UK Open champion, for the first time ever.

Before the UK Open of 2018, Gary Anderson had never won it. That did change yesterday evening, when he beat Corey Cadby 11-7.

“It’s fantastic for me,” said Anderson to ITV Sports. “I’ve come here to win the tournament and managed to do it, and it’s great.

“I played well on Friday and Saturday and I was very happy with my game but I struggled in the last three games. My scoring wasn’t there but my doubles went in when I needed them to.

“In the last three games I’ve been lucky – it’s been a struggle. Corey is good and I’ve got a lot of time for him, he’s a class act.

“I knew exactly what to expect and he’s going to be about for a long, long time. It’s getting harder every year with all the youngsters coming through and they’ll take it in their stride.”

The reporter from ITV Sports also asked Gary Anderson about if Gary actually considered retirement. Then Gary gave quite a mysterious answer, but let’s hope we will see a lot to him over the next couple of years.
