The PDC Nordic & Baltic was once again represented at Players Championship this weekend.
This year there is no less than 30 Players Championship events before the Players Championship Finals in November. This weekend number 21 and 22 were played and just as in the former 20 events, the PDC Nordic & Baltic region was represented by Madars Razma, Darius Labanauskas and Marko Kantele.
At event number 21, at Saturday, Madars Razma showed a great level. He won his first match against Benito van de Pas by 6-0 and averaged impressive 101.3. Even though he managed a very impressive average once again in the second round against Danny Noppert, he unfortunately lost 6-5.
