The last four PDC Nordic & Baltic Pro Tour events has been held, meaning we now know who have qualified for the World Championships, but also the World Youth Championships.
Before the weekend, Darius Labanauskas already was in a good spot for the World Championships at Alexandre Palace – however that did not stop the Lithuanian, as he won no less than three out of four events this weekend.
At the first event at Friday, he won against Veijo Viinikka from Finland in the final. At Saturday he beat Daniel Larsson and Vladimir Andersen in the two finals of the day.
Because Daniel Larsson already went out of the Pro Tour 9 in the quarter-finals, as he suddenly felt uncomfortable, the second spot for the Alexandre Palace was still up for grabs at the last event at Sunday, meaning Daniel Larsson, Vladimir Andersen and Madars Razma still had the opportunity to become number two on the rankings.
However Madars Razma already went out at the round of the last 32 and as Vladimir Andersen lost in the quarter-finals, we never saw any drama about that second spot. The Swede however got al the way to final, but then lost against Marko Kantele.
And with that result, the season of the PDC Nordic & Baltic Pro Tour 2022 came to an end, with this top 10 as the result:
And with the conclusion of the season, we also know which two players have managed to qualify for the World Youth Championship. And this year the spots are pure Danish, as Benjamin Drue Reus and Nikolaj Jørgensen are the two best players between 16 and 23 in our rankings.
Congratulations to all of the different qualifiers – we already look forward for the 2023 season.
