Thanks I missed that one, very stupidly given that I'd already noted that Durrant was playing him in the first round at the Euros.greatkingrat wrote: ↑Fri Oct 11, 2019 3:50 pmEvans is in the Euros.

If you look at what's within reasonable distance behind him it's actually not threatening:
32 Jamie Lewis 156,250; -0k; not PCF, not DC
33 Wilson 149,500: -5k GSoD, -2.5k PCF; PCF, not EC
34 Anderson 147,250: -20k EC, -2.5k PCF; PCF, not EC
35 van der Voort, 145,250: -5k EC, -2.5k PCF; PCF, EC
36 Evans, 142,000: -0k; PCF, not EC
37 Lennon, 131,250: -10k GSoD, -5k PCF; PCF, not EC, GSoD
38 Huybrechts, 129,250: -5k EC, -2.5k PCF; PCF, not EC
Realistically, it now needs good peformances from van der Voort (e.g. last 16 EC, last 16 PCF), or some really outstanding performances from the other players below him for Lewis not to remain in 32nd and get what could be a final appearance at the World Championships. Given that most of the players are in poor form, several are defending substantial chunks of money, and most of them only have the PCF guaranteed, and won't play in the EC, it's not that likely they'll do enough to get above Lewis' 156,250.
32. J Lewis 156250
33. R Evans 150500
34. V van der Voort 146250
35. J Wilson 144500
If Evans can win his 1st round match at the Euros, that brings him another 4k, then one more win at the Euros or the Players or a decent run in PC29/30 will be enough to overtake Lewis.
So he's by far the biggest threat, but it's worth noting that Evans' form is a bit mixed and crap on the floor (losing last 128 or last 64 as a board seed), and playing Durrant and then likely van Gerwen at the Euros, so there's still a decent chance he'll be turning up at the Players Championship Finals needing wins to get World Championship seeding.
