"Disgustingly" :D

No he didn't, as I don't believe today MvG threw away a 4 leg lead when only 2 legs away from the match. Hope this helps.

He threw away the chance to get into the lead though, missing too many doubles. Were the missed doubles "shitting himself" or what it actually was - just missing because not good enough in comparison to the opponent on the day?!

Those trophies looked a bit cheapo.

Gutted whitlock lost last night. Would have kept my interest in this event going. 1st night is good but need more 'locals' getting through.

Ditto, but the qualifiers Down Under are of a higher standard than those of North America or Asia for sure, for me these 3 events in NZ & Australia are the most watchable of the year aside from the Finals itself.

Congrats to Peter another win over MvG on TV May give him more confidence should they meet in major ranking event later this year.

A an aside what is the point of the WSID ranking the PDC May as well do away with them I know the top 8 qualify for the finals but they give wildcards anyway so they may as well just not have it. It’s a stupid ranking anyway as the mohority have played in a different number of events. Though Mensur is walking into the top 8 despite only playing and winning the one( he’s just that good!)

The 3 events down under saw Barney get 3 undeserved wildcards.

Wade who is higher ranked got none, meaning the deck is stacked in barneys favor to "qualify" in an unjust system.

In the end who cares as its just a meaningless glorified exbo series that is non ranked

He was missed by Premium Dart Data. :grin:

On a separate note, just hope James can have a good Grand Prix, following a disappointing Matchplay.

PETER WRIGHT is hoping that Sunday's Melbourne Darts Masters triumph can kick-start his 2018 campaign.

Having risen to world number two during a brilliant 2017, which included his maiden TV title at the UK Open and a World Series victory in Germany, Wright has endured a tougher year so far.

Having reached four ProTour finals and the World Cup of Darts decider during the opening months of 2018, Wright claimed is first tournament win of the year at a Players Championship in mid-June.

Victory at the Hisense Arena on Sunday, where he overcame Michael Smith 11-8 in the final, was a welcome boost for Wright, who also whitewashed Mike Bonser and saw off Raymond van Barneveld and Michael van Gerwen.

Wright is now preparing to challenge for further honours in the remainder of the year, starting at the Brisbane Darts Masters from August 17-19.

"Winning here feels great," said Wright. "I got to the final last year but couldn't beat Phil [Taylor], so to go one better this year is a sign that I can start to turn things around.

"I lost a bit of my confidence over the last few months and felt like I was getting smashed up by a lot of players and was really struggling with my game.

All the other guys have played well to beat me in past and deserved it, but I said to myself I was going to win this tournament.

"I knew I'd have to beat two Dutch guys to do that, Raymond and Michael, and I felt confident I was going to do that.

"It was going to be difficult playing against Michael Smith - in the Premier League he's beaten me 7-1 and 7-1, so when I went into the break 3-2 up I was glad I'd won three legs!

"Michael played his best darts against Gary [in the semis] and I played my best darts to beat Michael.

"We were still waiting for each other to 'go' in the final so we were both disappointed that it wasn't a great game for the crowd - but it was a great game for me!"

The Brisbane Darts Masters will be held from August 17-19 at the BCEC. For tickets, visit www.ticketek.com.au.
