After 17 days and some absolutely brilliant entertainment we finally have the final that I think is deserved over the course of the tournament. Fingers crossed its a classic as it has the potential to be if both bring their best form.

Gary Anderson v Adrian Lewis:
SF - Anderson bt Terry Jenkins 6-2
3 dart ave: 101.11
Doubles: 40%
180's: 12
HC: 126

Lewis bt Mark Webster 6-4
3 dart ave: 98.48
Doubles: 31.4%
180's: 9
HC: 131

Anderson has easily been the most impressive and consistent player of the tournament. Averages of 100+ in every game, chasing the tournament max record and actually finishing to a high level he's looked every inch a potential world champ. The doubters keep saying that the wheels will come off when he gets put under pressure but when you're scoring so heavily that you're 200 in front in legs then at times you can afford to faff about on the doubles. I think the one player who can almost match his scoring though is Lewis. He's showed a great maturity this week as he's played well without being hugely spectacular and has hit some crucial shots at big times in games (the 64 in set 9 last night being 1 example). I thought he looked very nervous last night and I don't know if he put too much pressure on himself to get to the final. He might relax and suddenly find a 100+ average tonight or freeze completely when he realises he's 1 game away from his life's ambition. Massive game for both obviously and I don't think anybody can confidently predict how either will cope as its the first time they have been in this position. Max lines are undoubtedly sky high and anybody getting long and needing 30 is praying they both find their best form and the game goes 12 sets or more as they will need it to hit that many. The bet I do like though is the HC in the match as Lewis especially is capable of taking out the 140+ shots. Given we may get 40 or more legs to get it then I'd be confident that the line can be beat.
Recommendation: 2pts win over 136.5 HC @ 5/6 (SJ)

Hopefully this is a classic match and we get a final fitting of the occasion. Hopefully the best player wins and neither of them miss crucial doubles that ends up with them being labelled chokers. Best of luck to all on here and all views and opinions are as welcome as always. Its been a blast chewing the fat with all on here as usual and we've added a few more regulars to the threads who have been welcome additions. Happy

I was working in Laddies when Taylor beat Bristow. Remember the score coming through and the odds changing. I reckon he was still odds against at 4-0, though the memory does play tricks.

Well done Lewis backers.

Great tourney for me, resisted the temptation for a bet the whole tournament. Really enjoyed the tournament and what a great final. Disappointed Anderson never won, I haven't been so excited about a final since the Jockey Wilson days. I made a fool of myself last year saying Lewis would take Taylor easily, but watching him tonight, you can see why I and many others thought he could take Taylor.

Great write ups hibee, I don't know how you did overall, and I'm not that bothered. Always been a supporter of constructive analysis regardless of final results. Obviously winning helps a lot but it's never the be all and end all with me.

Sorry about your nan hib, never posted at the time because I never know what to say, and I've lost a few family over recent years. Time passes so quickly it scares me.

Good luck in 2011 all. Happy
