World Cup?

As Van Gerwen most probably still will refuse to play with Klaasen I think it will be an easy fix.

Let's not forget that van de Pas could overtake Barney and solve the headache if he makes it to the quarter finals..

Plenty of time between now and World Cup anyway Wattimena may very well be second highest ranked Dutchman by then.

I thought it was confirmed by Hearn that the top ranked player for a country gets the invite and then they choose their partner irrespective of rankings.

Wasn’t it changed after the Anderson & Wright and MVG & Klassen issues.

I thought the year the Klassen was second he had already booked a holiday or was injured or some other excuse. I would find it hard to believe that the PDC would allow Anderson or Wright to be left out these days.

It is an invitational event though so will have to see. Life has to move on from Barney though and the Dutch need more than just a MVG to cheer on

Even though he's currently the PDC Dutch Number 6, I'd hope that van Gerwen would choose de Zwaan.

Still a while to go yet, hopefully de Zwaan can rocket up the rankings yet. Won't be defending anything for a while which is a bonus

Is this the first time 4 players ranked over 50 are in the last 16?

So if he makes the final Humphries goes up to 17th. Surely would have to be put in the PL aswell and would make Barneys inclusion even more ridiculous but predictable.

Think Mensur will be worried for his PL place now.

Remember though this is all about selling on TV.
He’s the top rated German speaker and the others haven’t really done much either this year.

Therefore more valuable for marketing than players like Chisnall or Wade. If they are looking to eliminate contenders they can remove Wade again and say he needs a break from darts after his WC meltdown.

Perhaps but Wright or Cross (who also haven’t done much this year) are qualified by right. Let’s temember also Mensur was dreadful in this year’s PL and usually that player is dropped for the following edition. Price only gets in as he’s Grand Slam champion otherwise he’d missed out also.

He actually threw some really good stuff in the PL, it's just others happened to hit even better scores against him. He averaged something like 99 over the course of the 9 weeks which I think was only bettered by MvG. His main weakness this year has been staying the course of the longer matches (ironic given how he stuck in so well against Anderson in Blackpool), which isn't too relevant for the PL, I think the only reason Mensur might not be there is if he himself doesn't fancy it
