High ratio of players to get through vs the number of players taking part - might as well go the whole way and have all 128 tour card holders at Ally Pally in a flat 128 draw :grin:
Been saying for years that all TC holders should be guaranteed a spot in a TV event by virtue of actually winning one as it would add more value to it, although with the UK Open changes this now seems to be happening.

No problem with that in the UK Open but not in the World Championship...
Should let the top X players (X being 16, 32...whatever) on the secondary tours enter today as well, imo.
It's not a true World Championship unless everyone in the world plays in it.........

If the pdc could have hand picked the 2 female players I’m 100% sure they would have picked Ana and Lisa.
Please enlighten us further with your in-depth and penetrating analysis.

With all respect to Deta, she is not a great pundit to be honest, Trina is a good choice. And anyway, her being used is nothing to do with Hearn, Just Sky. I hope she does quite a bit and not just the ladies games. And I hope one of the women win one match, that would be good fun for the Sky Hype machine!
Definitely a move to get women more involved in darts, as of course Sky are doing across all sports, and of course quite rightly!

but whats next, women posting on here? surely not! what ever next !! Lol

LISA ASHTON will make a dream come true when she makes her Alexandra Palace debut at the William Hill World Darts Championship.

Ashton qualified for darts' biggest-ever event by winning the UK & Ireland Women's Qualifier in Milton Keynes on Sunday, joining Rest of the World Women's Qualifier Anastasia Dobromyslova in the 96 player field.

The four-time Lakeside Women's Champion will face Dutchman Jan Dekker in the first round for the right to play 19th seed Mervyn King, and Ashton can't wait to grace the Ally Pally stage for the first time.

"It's a dream come true, I'm over the moon," said Ashton, who lost just five legs in seven games at the qualifier.

"I’m so chuffed to get through, there were so many top ladies playing in the qualifier and the quality was excellent.

"For me this is a massive win and it’s an amazing opportunity to play the men at Ally Pally.

"It been such an amazing day, everything has been brilliant and to come out on top at the end is everything I could have hoped for.

"We’ll (Anastasia) be flying the flag for ladies darts and hopefully we can do everyone proud."

The William Hill World Darts Championship will be broadcast through the dedicated Sky Sports Darts channel, which will also feature exclusive documentaries and classic footage alongside the Ultra HD coverage of the tournament.

A limited number of tickets remain available for sale through pdc.seetickets.com.

Some die hard Fanatics are very concerned that Hearn is using the women just for publicity, but those who have qualified seem more than happy to be given a chance regardless of the future.

The same "Fanatics" who want equal prize money for women?
Well, they have that in this event.

The same "Fanatucs" who aren't fanatical enough to attend the WDT or The Masters.
Strange.

The same "Fanatics" who demanded the PDC qualifying rules be changed after the fact to include Ashton in the GSoD are now complaining about her being in a PDC tournament?
They hate getting their way.

You'd be hard pushed to find a more moronic set of hypocrites on the internet.

Have to say I think Smith will come through the bottom half. Opponents if seeds come through.

Last 64: Meulenkamp/ Portela
Last 32: Henderson
Last 16: Suljovic
Quarter Finals:Cross
Semi Finals: Wright

Playing better than any of those and I have had a punt on him each way at 14/1. Expect it to be an Ando vs Bullyboy final.

Loses to many games as he is inconsistent and misses doubles.

Think it will be a MvG v Cross final myself though De Zealand May knock him out first round if so MvG v Price

Have got an EW on Price at 50-1

How bad is this Nitin Kumar? Considering the odds it feels like he doesn't even know why he is at Ally Pally.

I hope Michael Smith will have a good run at the world championship. I also think the draw looks really good for Peter Wright.
