Adrian Lewis pulled out of the Shanghai and Las Vegas legs of the world series, Gerwyn Price has been selected as his replacement
Delighted for Price he really has come on this year and proving over and over that he can compete with the elite players.

Price is a bit special but he has a lot of improving to do before he can be considered an elite player..Mark Webster carried him a lot in Wales' recent good run in the world cup. To think though that he only started playing about six years ago. Can see him in the top ten in couple of years from now.

Oh I know that he's not elite yet, he hasn't even won a major and only 1 individual final, but he is definitely showing he can play at that level. Most improved player over the last 18 months. These tournaments can only make him better. A few runs in the big majors and he will be Premier league.
I think he will be top 10 by January.

BTW, we're you watching the same world cup as I was? Webster certainly didn't carry him, quite the oposite in fact.

If this isn't the place for this, please move it.

Technique question. My darts continuously hit the board with the points pointing up. Kind of loosely hanging there. Lots of bounce outs.

Is there any sort of common fix to this?

Try longer stems if you're using short ones. Try hold the dart farther back. Or else just try different darts.

On his way back from 5-2 to beating Hubrechts 6-5 Paul Nicholson said he looked hungry.
'Doesn't he always' quipped the commentator!

Van gerwen back to his best today, beat suljovic in the final. Noticeable run from Cristo Reyes. When he gets consistent he is going to be a real force.

Great win for Steve Beaton in this week's Players Championship. Beat Anderson in good fashion, seems like a top bloke.

A lot of fellas are called 'one of the nicer guys on the tour' but I think Beaton really is one of those. Seems like he's been around forever.
A final for Anderson Saturday and a win Sunday so he's in decent form too.

Great to see Beaton get a win. He has been slipping down the rankings a bit but the ?10k he won might be enough to get him into the remaining majors.

Delighted for him. A great guy, met him at an exhibition a few years ago. Couldn't meet a sounder man. Saw that Gibraltar Darts documentary thing that sky had on recently & showed how he was struggling. A driving instructor I think he was, just to try pay the bills. That win will be massive for him
