QUARTER-FINALS - Best of 9 sets
Friday January 1 - Evening Session (7.30pm-11pm)

SEMI-FINALS - Best of 11 sets
Saturday January 2 (8pm-11.30pm)

FINAL - Sunday January 3 (7pm-10pm) - Best of 13 sets

In the Preliminary Round there will be no tie-break, and should a game go to the third set, the fifth leg would be the deciding leg.

In all other rounds, a tie-break would apply in the final set only, where a player must win by two clear legs. Should the score in the final set reach 5-5, a sudden-death leg would be played.
Report marychain1 December 12, 2015 4:15 PM GMT
Defending champ should be delighted with his draw. Jackpot on the other hand must be looking at his quarter and wondering how he has landed so many dangers in his section. Thornton's run to a potential QF match with Taylor looks relatively straightforward. Think Thornton and Anderson will be my first two plays. Van Gerwen and Taylor look to have reasonable quarters.

Thanks Darts n B but i was wondering if you can remember what the opening quote was for last year. Just feel its very high this year i thought is was under 600. Could be way off tho.
Report DartsnBooze December 16, 2015 6:51 PM GMT
Moonjago, Last worlds opening spread was indeed Under 600 at 595.5

The 180s has definitely increased leg on leg this season.
Like any spread being covered, the 180 count is dependent on the big hitters going deep along with long matches.
Though on the last 2 years stats it was a mixture of both.

I'm in the positive camp and on accordingly...Overs all the way again for me - Over 625.5x180s

Bwin are offering Over/Under 650.5 @ 11/13 if you can get on.

There's so many specials markets this year. When I get round to it i'll post them all up.

Good luck everyone with your Outright bets and daily selections...1 Day to go Grin Grin Grin

There's now roughly 30+ weekends of pdc events per year, be it behind closed doors floor pro tour/streamed european pro tour events/delayed tv world series of darts/tv majors, and other tv events (played over a weekend) that are pretty much tin pot tourneys, not worthy of being called a "major."

Happy Good News/Bad News Sad

Hibbee returns, but no Reviews...This is a huge blow to us and more so the many once a year Christmas regulars who bring so much fun, banter and frivolity to add to the forum to tie in with the enjoyment of the arrers on the box.

This could be the start of the demise of the forum from here on in, but for now we still have the pdc world champs and bdo mens and bdo ladies world champs to look forward to. What better way to rejoice the pre darts festive season by sharing some golden gems from happyhibbee - The Greatest Darts Forum Reviewer Ever!!!

17th December 2014

"Seems like no time at all since last years tournament and I was sat laughing at random people on a forum who I've never met. Welcome one and all to the best 2 weeks on the betfair forum again and lets hope all the old faces and some new ones are here Happy

Should be around for most of it but don't finish work till Christmas Eve and I'm having some issues with laptop just now so if a preview doesn't appear there's probably more than enough people to contribute. However like sprouts and turkey it's almost tradition for these things so hopefully all goes smoothly.

Onwards and upwards to have a look at the first night anyway"

Christian Perez v Cristo Reyes:

As big a degenerate gambler as I am I can honestly say I could count on one hand how many bets I've had over the years in the prelim matches. Such a short race means it doesn't really float my boat but good luck to those who can find a bit of value.

Recommendation: No Bet Grin

Michael van Gerwen v Joe Cullen:

Defending champ takes to the stage on the first night as is tradition and in all honesty shouldn't have too much trouble in progressing. Cullen was billed as a potential top 32 player a while back but hasn't kicked on and I've seen nothing to suggest he can trouble MVG. Can't see a bet here so happy to sit and watch.

Recommendation: No Bet Grin

Wes Newton v Winning Qualifier:

As many might know on here I'm not really a fan of Newton as I think he's wildly inconsistent and his darts go in at an odd angle which doesn't help his cause. He's also had a poor year but until opponent is known it's pretty hard to do much. What I would say is the standard in the prelims is improving and last year of the 8 winners we had 2 who won their R1 match and only 2 lost to nil. Wes actually played a qualifier last year and won 3-1 so depending on prices I might look to lay 3-0 at odds on.

Recommendation: No bet at present Grin

Summary: *No bets. Grin
Best of luck to all who are punting and lets hope we can have the usual laughs, opinions and value winners until after the New year has come and gone Happy

*There were a few recommendations for Day 1, but the "No Bets" posts are too legendary to pass by.

Greetings all and compliments of the season.

Very saddened to learn that we may not be benefitting this year from The Awesome Hibee Previews that have lit up the Xmas Darts period for a decade or more. The last time I felt this upset and tearful was when my beloved Hong Kong was handed over to China, and no-one even asked my opinion on the subject OR invited me to the ceremony. The beasts.

What am I to do of a Yuletide morning now there's no Hibee 'NO BET" advice to act on? 

When I read this terrible news, I felt so violated I had to go for a hot bath. And I hardly need add that was my SECOND hot bath of the day, which is two more than most of the oiks on this Forum, naming no names.

Quite honestly I just want to shake my head and SCREAM.

Alun, you know what us sporty oiks are like...Anything academic at that young age goes out the window. For what it's worth my Grade A mathematics isn't bad going for the only subject other that sports which remotely interested me. Or was it because my teacher was gorgeous? She once got told off for seeking her attention. Now that's gratitude for offering my scientific input to the art of Logarithms. Little did I know at the time that sport and maths would become the centre of my world, a near perfect combination.

On that note...The Barron Knights - California Girls parody.
