    Saw Cross @ 25 but that was at 11-15 I think. I bottled that one but got him +2.5 legs @ 5 which was fairly comfortable in the end.

    Series of Darts in Brisbane ITV4. James Wade out Peter Wright out. Gary Anderson excellent v Corey Cadby.. That visa debacle really set Cadby back but he has to try get on with it and at 24 he could do great things over the next decade. Quarters, semis and Final on Sat and then two more Australian venues maybe Sydney and Melbourne,

    For me this is when the darts season really begins again- World Grandprix @ CityWest Dublin starts tonight on Sky. Hopefully going to the semis on Sat. Have to start on a double to begin your score. Should be good.

    MVG scraping through, albeit by pulling out some massive finishes.

    Was good stuff for opening night Jamie Hughes, Whitlock and Van Den Bergh all with great chances. Some real get out of jail stuff coupled with brilliance from MVG, Smith and King.

    Great win for Chizzy. So many topsy-turvy matches, feels like whoever wins the first set loses the match.

    What do you make of it so far and who is your pick along with MVG? Looking to see how well Aspinall and Dobey can do.

    Glen Durrent has a very good all round game, think the winner of cross and durrent will meet mvg in the final. But if mvg keeps his form from yesterday he will be unstoppable

    He was a bit lucky tonight with those missed doubles.
    Watermina looking really good. Seeds dropping like flies.

    High class game between Chizzy and Aspinall with the Asp losing 3-1 with a 93+ avg, getting in he was phenomenal but struggled to get out, had darts to with the 1st set, then chizzy missed two to win 3-0

    What an open tournament. I haven't watched as much darts over the last year or so, I used to be hooked on it but now snooker and cricket are my sports after football.

    It makes a nice change though not to see the usual suspects facing off at the back end of the tournament i.e. Anderson, Wade, Cross, Taylor (before he retired) etc...

    Not sure what kind of form MvG is in but clearly he's still the man to beat although it would be good for the sport for Durrant to win a big PDC event.

    That stat about MVG having beaten Chizzy 26 times in a row is quite staggering. Hey ho, I guess it's about time the run ended.

    Very odd first 10 legs, only one hold of throw and a lot of missed doubles

    Camera work is shocking. Keeps zooming on players faces and then misses the double after they’ve thrown it.

    First match I've seen this weekend and camerawork is poor, missed a double and some cover shots. The Sky guys are way better.
    Worse is the commentator who rabbits on endlessly.

    Same old story with Wright vs MVG. Wright gets match darts then goes to pieces.

    That woman is a lying shit stirring bitch. Has an interview with Wright who sarcastically said that MVG isn’t that good. She then goes to MVG and said that Wright said that he didn’t deserve to win it
