Bad start to yesterday was turned round somewhat with 2 winners in the evening tho I still can't quite figure out how the Nicholson match had 8 maxes! Grin On to today which doesnt look as exciting but hopefully still produce a winner or two.

Brendan Dolan v Kim Huybrechts:
Dolan had a terrific run in Dublin to reach the final and hit the first 9 darter in that tournaments history. However he played poorly at the GSOD and I dont think hes that good and was extremely flatted in the Grand Prix. Huybrechts on the other hand I've only seen once I think at the euros and I thought he looked very good. Heavy scorer and has a great action and I think he should be favourite here. As such I'm going to have a bet on him to reach R2.

Recommendation: 2pts win Kim Huybrechts @ Evs (General)

Connie Finnan v Warren French:
Evening's prelim match sees Warren French reappear v a player I know nowt about. I'm sure french has played before at the Ally Pally though and he was pretty poor from memory so I think he may struggle but won't be having a bet.

Recommendation: No Bet

Mark Dudbridge v Dave Chisnall:
Potentially the game of the evening between one of my favourite players Chisnall and somehow going the other way in the rankings. I've had a massive soft spot for Chissy ever since I backed him at 250/1 for his first BDO Worlds and he went within a whisker of beating Adams in R1. Massively heavy scorer, dreadful doubler and seems an all round good egg. Dudders on the other hand has not really produced for years now but he is also capable of some tremendous bursts of scoring. Bet I like the look of is the maxes as I think it goes 4 sets at least here and Chissy could cover the line on his own.

Recommendation: 2pts win over 7.5 maxes @ 8/11 (Lads)

Ray Barneveld v James Richardson:
Odd one to call is this as at the moment you have absolutely no idea what mood Barney will turn up in. It could be the guy who averaged 100+ in r1 of the players last week or it could be the headshaking one that we see far too often these days. Its fair to say that its Richardson biggest match of his career and while Barney might not be on top form his reputation and experience might be enough to see him through.

Recommendation: No Bet

Mark Walsh v French/Finnan:
Walsh played ok in Doncaster last week and hes also a fairly consistent player in these early rounds. Whoever the opposition is he should have more than enough to get through but no prices available just yet.

Recommendation: No Bet

Summary: Fancy kim to get us off to a good start early and then hopefully a 180athon in the Chissy match for another decent evening. All views and banter welcome to be shared as always and good luck to all on here **** punting tonight.
