Has there ever been a 1st round like it? Plenty of upsets along the way with some glaring red flags. Namely Aidie, Wade and Chisnall. Form is temporary, class is...3 premier league players with vast experience getting ko'd. 2 of them like rabbits in the headlights. Let's be positive and pick out some players who shone and excelled:

Dimitri is my player of the 1st round. An average of 104 in a close fought pressure match with Bunting that went to 5 sets.
Price played as well as Ted played poor.
Vincent was superb in beating Chisnall.
Jamie Lewis might have been aided by playing a prelim as he went on to muller his fellow welshman Jonny Clayton, who simply never tuned up.
Paul Lim was a revelation. 63 years of age and found enough in the tank to get over the line. Surely this was his final?
Wilson came through a cracking match v ratajski.
The top seeds all averaged over and around the 100 mark.
Is Rob Cross (the next great pdc player) really only 4/11 to beat Mike Smith?

Who'd of thought there'd be a new villain in town, namely Pipe on the oche with a cough. If only Mutley was his opponent it would've all kicked off! Must say a big well done to sky for allowing Mardle to highlight a heinous crime. In Wayne's words "despicable and disgusting." Taylor is sure to put him in his place next round.

Christmas gifts:

A work colleague was moaning about the cost of christmas so I told him a probable way to make £400 from his £15k savings on tonight's session. MVG & Ando £5k win double. Apart from body malfunction what could go wrong?

1st round selections ended with a Profit of +1.4pts

Onto the 2nd round and another double session bonanza, though some of us are working.
The set format increases to best of 7 giving the top players a bit more breathing space to get their act together. A tough ask for several to win 3 sets let alone 4 as the money buyers will be out in force backing the shorties from here on in. Match odds including extensive stats from the 1st round...

Plenty of options available over both sessions. I've gone for something straight forward with two players banging in 180s on a regular basis to get us off to a good start in the 2nd round. Ando 1/3 most 180s v Lim? (As low as 1/7) is one for you lumpers on its own. Add the young Belgium to make it a shade under evens. Other 180s merchants of note are Thornton to make a 6/4 treble, then there's Wilson too.

Selection - Dimitri Van den Bergh & Gary Anderson to have the most 180s in their matches. Double @ 8/11 stanley 2pts

Suljevic far too short. Thornton's 1st round average way higher than his opponents, not playing well enough so far.

What a pair of mugs, unable to hold a set with throw.

What a story that would've been. So near yet so far.

Nearly time for the lethal biscuit. He's about as deadly as a blind hit man with no arms and legs.

This is one of the best MVG performances I have seen. Absolute madness darts from the other side of the universe.

Wilson gets his first chance under 100 clearance after .... 8 consecutive lost legs...

MVG will need to fall down the stairs to get beat although the way he's playing he would probably win on crutches wearing a collar...

only takes 1 bad performance tho and alot of capable boys to pounce, anderson can match him but 111 average probably a bit to much even for him
