Just seen score 7-14 down and wins 17-15.
Must have gone over 100/1 inplay odds wise.
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.
I only ended up watching the latter match cos of the missus.
Christ, eight legs on the row comeback?!
Smith is having a darting disaster
Possible game on now
God I completely forgot this was on for various reasons.
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,
Ah nice one, something to watch tonight. Hope Ando is back after last season's write off.
World Series of Darts @ Melbourne tonight 7P.M on ITV 4 and concludes tomorrow Sat.
If he can avoid deportation. He has quite the colourful history.
Wright v Cadby was awful
Heta is continuing his good run of form taking apart Wade 6-1
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.
1st round normally throws some surprises also some big 1st round games Smith v Whitlock and Cross v Mensur
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.
Tonight's lineup not half bad either:
Bunting v Clayton
Van der Voort v Aspinall
Adrian Lewis v Watemina
Durrant v Ratajski
Gurney v Noppert
Price v Chisnall
Cross v Suljovic
Wright v Hopp.
Great win for Chizzy. So many topsy-turvy matches, feels like whoever wins the first set loses the match.
Second round or last 16 starts tonight and the matches:
James Wade v Mervyn King
Michael Smith v Ian White
MVG V De Zwann
Gary Anderson v Chris Dobey
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.
Tonight's QF Line-up @ CityWest Dublin:
19:15 Ian White v Chris Dobey
20:15 Dave Chisnall v Nathan Aspinall
21:15 Michael Van Gerwen v Mervyn King
22:15 Glen Durrant v Jermaine Wattimena.
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.
Worse than that for Chizzy his last win on tv vs MVG was 2013 but it was in the Gand Prix
Champions league Darts all weekend on now this evening and tomorrow all across BBC 1 and BBC 2.
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
