    Great game though, proper old school with both of them near their best.

    The QFs look interesting

    Two hard games to call in the top half

    I reckon Wright will have too much for Sherrock

    MvG to annihilate Smith

    There's a little bit extra riding on the Wright v Sherrock match if my maths are correct. If Sherrock wins that means she'll earn a minimum of 40k from the Grand Slam and she already has a minimum of 7.5k from the World Championships. This would put her on 47.5k which should be enough to put her into the top 64 and so earn a 1 year tour card.

    So basically Sherrock is playing for her tour card against Wright.

    Tough ask for her if Snakebite plays anything near his best

    He's pretty unpredictable these days though, so she has a chance

    Van Gerwen is finally looking back to his best isn't he. Can't see anyone one left getting near him

    I was really confused when watching as I knew he scored 42 and I thought he had 82 left but then Webster said the graphic was wrong and he had 78 left. As the marker got it wrong it's still a valid leg but he only scored 497 points.

    No, it's just down to how the Slam works in the knockout stages. It's the only way to ensure that the seeded players will play 1/8 2/7 3/6 4/5 in the knockouts, assuming both make it through their groups.

    I was sure the marker had gotten it wrong aswell, I'm glad to read that as I thought I was going mad 😂

    Has Russ Bray been with the PDC since the very beginning?

    I like his style but he can't have long left with errors like this week.

    Well, predictions for tonight's fare?????????

    I'm thinking Rob Cross, Johnny Clayton ( cause I detest/ can't stand Gerwyn Price😣) & the two obvious bankers.....MVG & snakebite.

    Hoping & Hoping Clayton spends Price bigtime

    Any cliffs on what happened there? In pub with sound down but looked like Wade upset with marker?



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,866 ✭✭✭✭ Rikand


    Didnt think it was the marker. I thought it was someone off stage as both he and Cross looked well to the left. Maybe it was a shoutout or a fan broke towards the stage

    Great game of darts......i thought Rob Cross was going to ' climb the mountain ' there, gave it a right good lash.....fair play to Wade



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,855 ✭✭✭ Degag


    Looked frosty at the end too



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,150 ✭✭✭ Deeper Blue


    Cross not happy at the end there I'd say, wonder what happened

    Good game



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,827 ✭✭✭ PsychoPete


    Good session from Clayton, back in the match now



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,150 ✭✭✭ Deeper Blue


    Some dropoff from price the last few legs, he was brilliant at the start



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,855 ✭✭✭ Degag


    Something between ref and Price there?



  • Registered Users Posts: 901 ✭✭✭ Swaine


    Interesting to see Price roaring and flexing in that game, he didn't do that once in his last two games against Johnny. Felt he showed him too much respect.

    Clayton's doubles were poor tonight and it cost him in the end.

    Really hope he goes and wins the worlds now. Great guy.

    I think Sherrock will shock us again tomorrow, she's on a roll now and Wright is very wobbly these days. 7/2 on Sherrock is very generous.

    I think Fallon is brilliant, great player....I AM a fan...... but really can't see her turning snakebite over this evening...... can't see it happening.....I think the showman will have a 3+ cushion by the final dart



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,150 ✭✭✭ Deeper Blue


    I think Wright will win handy, 16-6

    On Fallon at fours.. I fink she'll not crumble against Wrighty.. He's no cert given how he's reported to be playing.. Think the 1/12 about Price to beat that 21yr old was more generous than the ~1/8 about the clown.. She could well be hammered, no doubt, if Peter can bang in the 140/180s, but he's not guaranteed to be on his game... Can't ignore Sherrock at what look to be big odds..



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,544 ✭✭✭ ThebitterLemon


    She’s done brilliantly but can’t see anything but a comfortable evening for Peter.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,827 ✭✭✭ PsychoPete


    Wright really should be making easy work of Sherrock



  • Posts: 7,792 ✭✭✭ Haylee Teeny Guava


    Hope Smith wins..



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,827 ✭✭✭ PsychoPete


    Smith coming out all guns blazing, MVG making a mess of double 18



  • Posts: 7,792 ✭✭✭ Haylee Teeny Guava


    Lovely bull finish by Smith.. "No emotion" 😊
