PDC World Championship

Post by Mind the windows Tino. on Mon 30 Nov 2015, 1:35 pm

William Hill World Championship first round draw:

Wes Newton (Eng) v Cristo Reyes (Esp)

John Henderson (Sco) v Darren Webster (Eng)

Mervyn King (Eng) v Aleksandr Oreshkin (Rus)/Paul Lim (Sin)

Peter Wright (Sco) v Keegan Brown (Eng)

Vincent van der Voort (Ned) v Laurence Ryder (Aus)

Kevin Painter (Eng) v Kim Viljanen (Fin)/Sven Groen (Ned)

James Wade (Eng) v Warrick Scheffer (Rsa)/John Michael (Gre)

Stephen Bunting (Eng) v Jyhan Artut (Ger)

Robert Thornton (Sco) v Alan Norris (Eng)

Mark Webster (Wal) v Qiang Sun (Chi)/Mick McGowan (Irl)

Jamie Caven (Eng) v Michael Rasztovits (Aut)/Rob Szabo (NZ)

Gary Anderson (Sco) v PDPA Qualifier runner-up/Per Laursen (Den)

Benito van de Pas (Ned) v Max Hopp (Ger)

Jelle Klaasen (Ned) v Joe Cullen (Eng)

Jamie Lewis (Wal) v Daryl Gurney (NIr)

Ian White (Eng) v Dimitri van den Bergh (Bel)

Phil Taylor (Eng) v Keita Ono (Jpn)/Alex Tagarao (Phi)

Simon Whitlock (Eng) v PDPA Qualifier winner

Dave Chisnall (Eng) v Rowby-John Rodriguez (Aut)

Brendan Dolan (NIr) v Kyle Anderson (Aus)

Justin Pipe (Eng) v Christian Kist (Ned)

Michael Smith (Eng) v Jeffrey de Zwaan (Ned)

Adrian Lewis (Eng) v Jan Dekker (Ned)

Michael van Gerwen (Ned) v Thanawat Gaweenuntawong (Tha)/Rene Eidams (Ger)

Raymond van Barneveld (Ned) v Dirk van Duijvenbode (Ned)

Kim Huybrechts (Bel) v David Pallett (Eng)

Dean Winstanley (Eng) v Ronny Huybrechts (Bel)

Steve Beaton (Eng) v Koha Kokiri (Nzl)

Andrew Gilding (Eng) v Gerwyn Price (Wal)

Terry Jenkins (Eng) v Darin Young (USA)

Mensur Suljovic (Aut) v Jermaine Wattimena (Ned)

Andy Hamilton (Eng) v Joe Murnan (Eng)

Mostly straight forward for the big hitters but I expect Cristo Reyes might be worth a punt over Wes Newton and I fully expect Keegan Brown to give Snakebite fits.  That is the toughest opening round for any of the 'favourites' and I wouldn't be at all surprised if Brown turned him over.  Especially getting to Wright early before he has built up a head of steam.

Any thoughts?

He is, Alistair. It was a copy and paste job from Sky Sports. Blame those cretins there.

Lewis can be flaky but he likes the Worlds. I think he'll have too much.

Dekker can be quite handy, and Lewis can be unpredictable.

Dolan v Anderson could certainly go either way. The PDPA Qualifiers are on their way at the moment. Be interesting to see if Arron Monk makes it through.

Keegan Brown is 11/4 against to beat Wright.

The form that Shrek's in at the moment ought to make the 11/10 on offer practically a steal and akin to buying money.
Incidentally what's happened to Colin Lloyd ? Oh I nearly forgot. No-one ( myself included ) cares.

Stephen Bunting is available at excellent odds of 150/1. Yes, he has a tough draw - RVB and MVG in rounds 2 and 3, I think - but there's no way he should be priced that far out.

Peter Wright has got a decent draw and the game to make it to the final.

I was going to take advantage of Peter Wright to win, score more 180's and have the highest match checkout at 5/2 but decided against it as Keegan, when on song, can hit the 60's for fun. Hindsight eh!...

Bunting has been in patchy form, plus with the draw, is why he's 150/1. Stranger things have happened though.

On viewing all the first round action, I would say if you where looking for an outsider tip, look no further then Dave Chisnall. Odds range from 25/1 (SkyBet) to 30/1 (Paddy Power) for outright win and 8/1 to reach the final.

He came second in the Premier League against his major rivals over 16 games. He averaged 101.39 and had a checkout percentage of 42.17% over 164 legs. Narrowly being defeated in a last leg shootout with eventual winner Gary Anderson. Although he would have to meet Van Gerwen in the semi's to get there. He definately has the scoring power and now the finishing to take advantage in any shortfall in Van Gerwen. He is 2-2 in the last 4 meetings and at 30/1, I think thats a good price.

Three of the last four games of darts have been ridiculous. It doesn't get much better than the games between MVG/RVB, Wright/Chizzy and Klaasen/Taylor!

I'm beyond upset. A £50 treble on Chisnall/Norris/Klassen which lost by one dart.

Great tournament, though. I think RVB will take it now Taylor is out of the way.

I fancy Lewis, knows how to get it done in sets at the Worlds. RVB always plays well against MVG, struggles to back it up though. Hoping for Wade (or Chuck!) to break his duck though.

Anderson is playing fantastically well, but it is worth noting that none of his four opponents have ever put him under serious pressure. Wade was dismal today.

Klassen, the inconsistent Klassen, might just catch him cold if he plays like he did against Taylor.

Well, my tip is still going but the guys I was rooting for both crashed out. Promising debut from Chuck though - he can score with the best in the PDC, just needs to improve his timing on his finshes and cut out the mental errors.

Anderson 6 - 3 Klaasen
Lewis 6 - 4 RVB

Anderson 7 - 5 Lewis

Not sure there is much left in the tank for RVB, Smith showed he's not ready & allowed him back in, Lewis won't do that. Hoping Klaasen turns up, as it could be fireworks, if he doesn't, Anderson walks it 6-1 or 6-2.

Think RVB still has enough left for this one. He's beaten Lewis in their last three televised meetings and, mentally, he seems as serene and relaxed as he has been for a long while. I think the Dutchman will make it a comfortable 6-3/6-4 victory, after staying in front for the whole of the encounter.

And Klassen to nick a 6-5 against Anderson in a classic semi-final.

Adrian Lewis beat Raymond van Barneveld 6 - 3. Lewis was 5 - 0 up until Barney staged a minor comeback. Interestingly this will be Lewis' third final at the World Champions, and on each occasion someone else has beaten Taylor. Lady luck seems to favour Lewis...

Reigning World Champion Gary Anderson battered Jelle Klassen 6 - 0 to move into the final and setup a rematch of the 2011 PDC final. Anderson has the chance to avenge that defeat.

Highlight of the match was the Flying Scotsman hitting a 9 darter in the third leg of the match. Anderson looks a class apart.

Would hardly call it scrappy? World record number of 180's, 4 sets going 3-0, another 4/5 going 3-2, breaks of throw. Thought it was an enthralling Final.

Anderson deserved it; not only is he the best darts player around at the moment, he's also a genuinely nice bloke; never liked Lewis; always comes across as an arrogant, fat, sweaty mess. His wife must love his money!

I’ll never forget watching Lewis v Manley in the Premier League a few years back.  They were being interviewed on the stage after the game which Lewis had just won.

Manley, being the chap that he was, was having a dig about Lewis upsetting his rhythm through the match.

Lewis interrupted and made some comment about Manley being too fat to play darts!

Come on now, Adrian.  People in glass houses and all that….

Frustrating player, Lewis.  Has the game to rattle in a few more World Championships but always seems to throw in a pub darts leg at the wrong moment.  Anderson was/is the complete opposite.  He can be throwing like a drain, then Lewis would hit a 60 or a 58 and Anderson would come flying back with a maximum.  

A lot of the top players seem to have a better ability to hit big scores in the ‘key’ legs than Lewis (RvB being a classic example of it).  Lewis has no trouble scoring, but always seems to chuck in a couple of 1’s just when he doesn’t need it.

Yeah, that's right, cause One Dart gets smashed 7-0 by Taylor.

Couldn't find the interview, did find another one with Burnett (sp?) where Lewis has a 70's porn star tache.

It's shaping up to be a good one. Barney is playing some good stuff, Peter Wright's confidence is sky-high, Taylor feels he has one more left in him, Gary is gunning for the hat trick, Jackpot remains the great unpredictable and MVG, for all his undeniable brilliance, is definitely more beatable over sets.

Saw the hype job Adrian Lewis lose to Raymond van Barnevelt last night. Lewis lucked out in 2011/12 when Anderson couldn't hit doubles and Hamilton a fringe top 20 player gave him two championships.

I remember when this moron claimed he would win 10 world championships, fat must be suffocating his brain

So getting to the business end of the 2017 championships.

Some magnificent matches in the quarter finals

Gary Anderson 5-3 Dave Chisnall
Peter Wright 5-3 James Wade

Michael van Gerwen 5-1 Daryl Gurney
Raymond van Barneveld 5-3 Phil Taylor

Two time reigning and defending champion Anderson has been sensational thus far. Wright has also been very good. Anderson is a couple of levels about his fellow Scot.

van Gerwen outclassed Gurney. Barney beat Taylor at the world championships for the first time since his 2007 world championship. Barney has been very good so far, but MvG probably wants revenge for last years defeat.

Guaranteed to have a Scotsman in the final for the 4th consecutive year.

SEMI FINALS:

ANDERSON VS WRIGHT

VAN GERWEN VS VAN BARNEVELD

Difficult to see past a Gary/MVG shootout which, should it happen, has the potential to be one of the best ever. Barney's performance against a faded and one-foot-in-the-retirement-home Taylor was workmanlike rather than inspired and a similar effort against MVG will see the latter make absolute mincemeat of him. However he tends to raise his game against his fellow Dutchman so we'll see what happens. If Gary nails a few early doubles and builds momentum then it should be a smooth passage for him. Wright is solid, consistent and has oodles of self-belief but has yet to nail a TV big one so the doubts will remain.  
A Gary/MVG dream ticket final ? Bring it on.
