Sorry for the delay finished up work today and not long home. Also got to nip back out so might not be around much this evening but hopefully I can tip a winner or two before I disappear.

Mark Walsh v Kevin Painter:
R1 - Walsh bt Warren French 3-1
Ave: 93.8
180's: 5
Doubles hit: 41%
HC: 96

Painter bt Arron Monk 3-1
Ave: 95.88
180's: 6
Doubles Hit: 58%
HC: 70

Opening match looks an interesting match between 2 of the established PDC players. I thought Walsh played a bit in and out in R1 and although he wasn't under much pressure he did respond when he had to from a set down. Painter is riding the crest of a wave right now carrying on from winning his first tv event in Doncaster to playing really well v Monk in his opening win. I thought he scored really well and finished tremendously and he's probably a justifiable favourite here. Bet I like the look of in this one is the maximums as I think it has the potential to have a lot of close sets and may go all the way. Throw in the fact that they are both pretty good on the t20 and I think the line is a little low.

Recommendation: 2pts win over 11.5 maxes @ Evs (Lads)

James Wade v Jelle Klaasen:
R1 - Wade bt Petri Korte 3-1
Ave: 91.69
180's: 1
Doubles hit: 53%
HC: 115

Klaasen bt Peter Wright 3-1
Ave: 88.24
Doubles hit: 63%
HC: 120

Interesting game is this one between the 6 time major winner Wade and the former BDO World Champ Klaasen. Wade played no better than average in his opener v Korte and I think he needs to find his game more if he is going to go deep in this. He often does just enough to win matches though and he does know how to dig in and grind a win out when things arent going to plan. Klaasen didn't score as heavily as he can in his win but he had the 3rd best % of doubles hit from the winners and that was the foundation for his win. I couldn't begin to support Wade at the prices on offer as he is capable of throwing really poorly but so is Klaasen but 9/2 is almost too big for someone who can string together 4 or 5 great legs. I do like the look of the highest checkout in this match though as Wade is fantastic at the crucial outshots and Klaasen is always prone to just producing a big kill out of nowhere.

Recommendation: 1pt win over 125.5 HC @ 5/6 (General)

Steve Farmer v Kevin Munch:
R1 - Farmer bt Ronnie Baxter 3-2
Ave: 87.43
180's: 7
Doubles hit: 34%
HC: 102

Munch bt Denis Ovens (Walkover)
Ave: 98.02 (1 set played)

Last game is a strange one for me between 2 pretty unknown quantities. Farmer has played a few times on tv and in his opening round he looked in total control, then looked as if he was gone and somehow regrouped to end up going through. He is a 85-90 ave man at best over a long course I think but that might be good enough here. Hard to evaluate Munch as he won his prelim easily and then was under no pressure v Ovens who was almost unable to play. Apart from that its hard to evaluate much of an opinion on him. I'm a bit surprised to see Farmer as such a strong favourite here as he's not exactly a tv regular and just on the prices I am going to have a minimum bet on the german Munch.

Recommendation: 0.5pt win Kevin Munch @ 21/10 (Lads)

Summary: Looks like an interesting evening in store and the one big fancy is the maxes in the opener. The other 2 bets are more gut bets but I think they have decent chances of obliging. Best of luck with all bets this evening and I'll catch up with the regulars when I get back tonight.

Looks like I'm all the bad things under the sun from some on here. Firstly I don't ask anybody to follow my fancies and unlike most I actually put up anything I fancy before the game starts. Secondly this actually takes me a bit of time every day and as people on here know this time of year wasn't exactly great for me last year so sometimes its hard to actually get myself motivated to do it.

Seems from watching the first match it went the distance as I thought but unfortunately there was a ridiculous amount of 140's which on another day fly in. Second match there was 3 missed doubles in different legs for the bet to cop. Its a game of fine margins and sometimes they go for you and other times they don't.

If folk want to have a pop then fine I'm a big lad who can take it but try putting up your own fancies before the game and lets see how you get on

Hibee, finding a knowledgeable edge is part of the fun, but no one knows for sure what the outcome will be in any darts match (ask Robson & Anderson) But we do know the morons will be in attendance. Keep posting your previews as i like others enjoy reading anything positive to do with darts. Cool Cool
