Second Round
6.00pm Raymond van Barneveld v Mark Walsh
7.30pm Simon Whitlock v Andy Hamilton
9.00pm James Wade v Colin Osborne
10.30pm Wes Newton v Barrie Bates

I fancy wins for Walsh, Whitlock, Wade & Newton.

On paper a potentially great night of arrers in the offing.

Is it?

Looks like 4 routine victories to me. Tonight is the famine after the feast.

Tend to agree, whilst there is some great quality on display I think the games will go as predicted by XR - with maybe the exception of the first one.

I'm with you guys as well, I honestly don't think any matches are a stand out.

I'll still be watching though

Pretty much sums up my thoughts

my problem is (like in the prediction games) - that i pick with my heart (i.e. who i like or who posts here etc).. rather than brutal choices based purely on a 'logical' selection. But I do think Walsh will take Barney tonight, if he's still going into the game thinking negative thoughts. When we are told (and experience) that 90% of most sports is all in the head, Barney doesn't half go into a game handicapping himself. A real shame.

Going on the form shown in Round 1, Walsh has a great chance of beating Barney.

Agree with you.

I think the 4 winners stand out but I don't think it will be easy for them.

The order of play could have done with being reversed too - Whitlock and Barney are far and away the 2 biggest crowd-pullers tonight. And Wednesday and Thursday play used to start at 7pm - don't know why it's been put back an hour this year. We won't be fully inebriated refreshed until 9.30pm at least! :CCCC:

And am I alone in thinking that Bates will beat Newton tonight?

Can't see it Damo, but he's more than capable as we know.

Common sense surely Adrian. Last night we had two 3-2's with one of them going to a final leg decider. Do you honestly see tonight bettering that?

In fairness I guess there is a small element of hope over expectation, BUT any of the lads playing Barney, Wade or Whitlock are good enough to win.

We need some more tear up's as well because the atmosphere has been a bit flat so far.

I just want a competitive night of darts. :CDDD:

By moonwalking to the oche, snogging one of the walk on girls, downing a guiness then revealing he is actually the evil un-identicle twin brother of Ross Montgomery?

That would shock me :omg:
