    He has reversed his decision, and wants to retire after the world championship. Can’t see him qualifying for it

    What an absolute shocker, did not see that coming.... Same with n0bhead McGregor.

    By doing this he has shown that he hasn't got the temperament to win another major tournament, his emotions are all over the place. I'd be surprised if he wins another match as a professional to be honest!

    Crikey, it must be frustrating not being able to play to the level you used to and it's sad to see. He's really fallen off a cliff this year though form-wise.

    As Leeds didn’t make the premier league, the premier league has come to them

    Starts tomorrow. Not a great weekend for it to be on for me, I’m working from 7-21:30 on Saturday and to the beach all day Sunday.

    If Anderson and Wright click then I think it’s Scotland’s to lose, Smith is out of form and don’t think MVG will be able to carry Wattimena to glory. Wales have a good chance with both Price and Clayton playing well

    Are pro darts players constantly calculating in their mind? They seem to know immediately which doubles they need to hit. Even if they hit the wrong number, they immediately know how that affected the count and what the next double should be.

    Or when they can finish, they immediately seem to know which combination of numbers.

    Just memory, when you play darts as long as they have you just automatically know what to go for without thinking it

    Wales have been knocked out by Singapore

    Well worth checking out the draw for the World Matchplay Sat 20th July- Sun 28th, there are some potentially brilliant line-ups. World series continues Friday in Cologne ITV4.

    Very good game between Bunting and Price, both missed match darts. Bunting won 13-12

    Good win for Smith and solid arvo's darts all round. Been a while since I've watched due to my eye problems.

    Durrant has taken to the PD. Like duck to water, in terms of averages he is 3rd only behind MVG and Cross. Taking apart Adi Lewis. Granted Lewis is nowhere near his best and hasn’t been since making the world final in 2016

    Shame cos Adi on form is great to watch. Has been eons since he was on top form though.
    Durrant so solid.

    That Wade/ De Zwaan match proper rollercoaster. As for Lewis will be slipping further down the rankings especially with the quality coming through, sad to see because when in full flow so easy to watch. Himself and Chizzy will they ever get back "Premier League Status" ?

    Absolutely, just a brilliant night at the darts. Also fair play to Mervyn King. Tomorrows line-up looks very decent as well, it's going to be some few days.

    Has been a good tournament. So open now as well.
    Some real tussles. Bunting-White right now another one going into overtime.

    Bunting again survives match darts to win, came from 4-9 to win 14-12 vs Ian “the chocker” White

    Bunting and Wade scraping through.

    Forgot Cross is still in it. Assume he's fave ahead of Wright.

    Yes, but Wright is in very good form now, probably helped by the fact he’s using the same darts now for more then 5 minutes

    High class again. Gurney finishing was the difference, those 61-99 C/O he was deadly

    Wanted Wright to win but Gurney was excellent in those last few legs tbf.

    Not too fussed on Cross-Gurney, but Smith-Durrant sounds good. Smith can outscore him, but I reckon Durrant's doubling sees him win say 16-12.
