Hobo inexplicably reduced to the Ghetto of Bowl 4, with the likes of Anastasia and Frances H.

Lionel seemingly in the unpublicised Bowl 5.

How can the Wildcard Qualifier not be ranked in the bottom pool?
Report King Cally November 3, 2009 4:08 PM GMT
Barney won't be happy being presumably in the same half as Taylor.

this draw paves the way for the expected final of Hankey and Taylor, well done PDC
Report King Cally November 3, 2009 4:33 PM GMT
Group of death :
Hankey,
Webster (sorry Mark, but you're not playing great!!),
ITV qualifier (eg McGarry),
Hoenselaar.

What route did Ovens get in by?
Report Win only - Sp only November 3, 2009 4:37 PM GMT
i was wondering the same about brian woods!
Report wockey jilson November 3, 2009 4:38 PM GMT
Woods would be his semi final at Lakeside 2 years ago

Van Der Voort is another odd one

Ovens German Darts Championship 2007 runner up

VDV European OOM leader.
Report Eldrick November 3, 2009 4:41 PM GMT
van der voort got his place due to the order of merit from the european based players champs

ovens was last man standing in a centurions/darts drinking game (francis hoenselaar snagged the second spot in the same event)

Ye Gods, how did Subtitles receive the number 7 seeding?

Past performances in this event???

lol alun re: sams

jenks and anderson i'll be hoping to oppose as seeds - here's hoping for some decent prices. could get another big priced finalist from wade's half of the draw

Hi Gretna - let's hope BF get some markets up soon.

I will ask someone to give me 2 quid on Number 2 seed Uncle Ted at 150/1, which I think is fair and reasonable.

Great to see no less than 3 girls playing this year, though all sadly condenmed to life in Bowl 4.

No Klassen?

Thought world champinship semifinalist made it?
Report alun2005 November 3, 2009 8:07 PM GMT
No Nicholson either. Or could he yet be the Wildcard?

The event needs a few hard men to tame the notorious Wolver crowd.
Report me3 November 3, 2009 9:26 PM GMT
Nicholson would definately be a popular winner of the wildcard.

Any others of interest who will be playing at Irving? Although if the Lion roars they are in for a wasted trip!

Klaasen and the hardman both only got to the quarters at the Worlds

It does seem a bit unfair that Scott Waites is in solely for being World Masters Runner Up in 2008, yet 2009 Runner Up Robbie Green isn't.
Report Lies, DamnLies, and Statistics November 4, 2009 6:39 AM GMT
^ anyone know the reason?? was it after the cut-off point??

if they had invited him, there would have been no places left for the itv qualifier

Eldrick when are you going to get it out of your head that Hankey has absolutely no chance against anyone from top 5 in PDC.....
Report STEPTOES YARD November 4, 2009 2:46 PM GMT
The Hobo will sweep all before him
Report alun2005 November 4, 2009 3:15 PM GMT
Agreed Steppy. This is an endurance event, perfect for the Chepstow standing dish Hobo 'Halcon' Generalardais

Draw on Planet Darts now. Barney and taylor both get a woman in their groups. Not that I am suggesting anything**mind.....
Report Lies, DamnLies, and Statistics November 5, 2009 10:34 PM GMT
^ to be fair, they can't let either of the women play in the same group as the dreamboy, as they would go wild...

limits their choice somewhat...

Report cliff November 5, 2009 10:41 PM GMT
The Robbie Green is probably more to do with Waites being more temptible whereas Green was banned from PDC for a while and then moved back to BDO. Though i doubt that's the "official" reason...
