    Interesting Q&A on Van Gerwens Twitter last night. The man is brutally honest

    Where could I get a look at that?

    The saturation continues tonight on ITV4, the German darts master's.. I thought I watched this very tournament about 3 weeks ago?

    I'm copying and pasting my own post from a few weeks ago...9 events held in Germany. The highest ranked German player is Max Hopp at 44.
    They Euro tour events are decent. Plenty of games in short format and a chance to see players you wouldn't see otherwise.

    The problem I see is that of 12 Euro tour events that bar Gibraltar the rest are in Germany (9) and Vienna (1) which is practically Germany anyway and Maastricht which you could say the same about as it's only across the border.

    It's not much of a tour when they're always on in the same country. I'm sure a few other countries could host a couple of these Ireland being one of them.

    Wright beat Taylor comfortably in the final.
    MVG withdrew after his first round game with an ankle injury. Second time this year after the UK Open when it was a back injury. Shocking lack of fitness for a 20something maybe catching up with him as he approaches 30?

    Back to a proper ranking tournament next week with the European Championship from Belgium. 100K to the winner. No GAnderson, Lewis, Wade, Barney or Taylor though, mainly through not playing or failing in the 12 qualification events.

    MVG might not play with his injury


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,603 ✭✭✭crasy dash


    Watched Mvg on Friday night could barely walk on the stage .
    ITV said he went straight home to the Netherlands for 4days intensive treatment for the injury.
    Wouldn't be a huge surprise if he tried to play but has to withdraw.

    Bored and watching the semi final of the 2013 grand slam. Sitting on my own smiling away to myself like a mad man. Still the best game I've ever seen, probably ever will see (scoring wise) both averaging 116+ after 16 legs. 24 180s in the first 13 legs. Wish Lewis and Taylor could get this form back again.

    MVG last night.
    "I'm looking forward to getting back playing and I hope I can win this title again.
    "I've had a good rest since the weekend and had some treatment for my ankle and it's feeling a lot better now. I've been practising again and I'm feeling good, so I'm focused on the European Championship now."

    I had backed Suljovic on the thinking that MVG would not show up, but even if he does and is not 100%, I think 18/1 is great e/w value and on the other side of the draw Rob Cross is also overpriced imo.

    He has looked brutal and very nervous on tele so far this year.. Nice price on Suljovic though

    Agreed but the form away from it has been very impressive, taking a punt that he is becoming more accustomed to the different pressure of televised events and his Q of the draw looks particularly winnable.

    Haven't time to look for video but look up gerwen prices weird dart. Clearly hit a single 20 but somehow comes out and in to the treble. Crazy stuff. Magnetic trebles??


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 12,045 ✭✭✭✭gramar


    Kyle Anderson in the semi's, keeping a good run of from going.
    Just spotted Bunting too - out in the 2nd round...he's someone who's disappeared off the radar very quickly.

    Gurney putting runs together consistently, beat Wright 10-5 to get into a semi where he'll play Rob Cross or Michael Smith.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,407 ✭✭✭✭ArmaniJeanss


    KAnderson misses D10/D5 to beat MVG, MVG scrapes home 11-10.
    9 darter MVG in there as well apparently (I missed it channel hopping :o)

    The 9 darter was from Kyle Anderson though!

    First time in PDC history there hasn't been an Englishman in the top 4 of the world rankings

    Can't figure out how this is a ranking event, yet all the previous world series throughout the year were non ranking exhibitions..


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,277 ✭✭✭danganabu


    Barney @ 18/1 looks the value to me based on the draw, his quarter of the draw looks considerably the weakest.

    Went with Whitlock myself, he's in decent form.

    He has been in very good form alright but has a terrible draw, will most likely have to beat Gurney, Wright and MVG just to make e/w money.

    Lewis is having an awful year, between his back problems and darts. Has to reach the Grand Slam via the last chance qualifiers on Monday aftenroon
