If people on here genuinely believe Robson will get out of that group, I assume you have all ploughed into the 5/2 (?) available for him to do so? Can we see screenshots of your betting slips please?

The only one of those "BDO player to get out of the group" odds that is even remotely enticing is Mark McGeeney at 7/4, and I'm far from convinced I'll be having a go at that.

THE opening day of the 2018 bwin Grand Slam of Darts will see Michael van Gerwen meet Gary Robson, Rob Cross play Mark McGeeney and Glen Durrant take on Simon Whitlock.

The 32-player tournament features stars of the PDC and BDO systems from November 10-18 at the Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton live on Sky Sports, with tickets available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk or by calling 0870 320 7000.

The opening group matches on Saturday November 10 will see play split across two sessions of action.

Saturday's afternoon session features Groups E-H, which include reigning Lakeside Champion Durrant facing recent European Championship finalist Whitlock.

World Champion Cross plays McGeeney, while 2017 Grand Slam of Darts finalist Peter Wright takes on Jim Williams and Mensur Suljovic plays former Lakeside Champion Scott Mitchell.

Emerging stars Max Hopp and Josh Payne open the event, while Gerwyn Price plays debutant Andrew Gilding, World Youth Champion Dimitri Van den Bergh meets qualifier Ryan Searle and Stephen Bunting takes on German prospect Martin Schindler.

Reigning champion Van Gerwen headlines Saturday evening's play as he takes on Grand Slam debutant Gary Robson.

2012 Grand Slam winner Raymond van Barneveld opens up against Polish debutant Krzysztof Ratajski, while Gary Anderson plays Germany's Michael Unterbuchner.

Two-time Grand Slam finalist James Wade, the winner of two TV titles in the past two weekends, will meet Dutchman Wesley Harms, and Premier League finalist Michael Smith plays World Masters champion Adam Smith-Neale.

Saturday's evening session will open with a tie between former Lakeside Champion Mark Webster and former World Youth Champion Keegan Brown.

Jonny Clayton then plays qualifier Joe Murnan, and Ian White takes on another debutant, Steve Hine.

Sunday's second day of group stage matches will see Saturday's winning players face each other, and the losing players face off.

Groups E-H will conclude their group matches, with Groups A-D completing their action on Tuesday before the top two players from each group progress to the knockout phase from the last 16 onwards.

For ticket information, and details of car parking and shuttle buses, visit www.wolvescivic.co.uk or call 0870 320 7000.

I can see a few surprise results with the draw of the groups, What people overlook is that this tournament is totally different to a straight knockout and will suit some players more than others with it being a short format and round robin groups, Ive had a bet on Wade e/w for this and will probably do a couple of other bets closer to Saturday.

Durrant has to be happy with his group, Mitchell as well. My favourite tournament this one.

I thought he played quite well to win it tbh. Certainly had more of a killer instinct than Durrant.
And much more entertaining to watch.

It may be that like DvdB and Jamie Lewis, he has a game he can bring to the TV stage, so I may be doing him a dis-service.

Wiped out the top 3 in the BDO en route didn't he?
Like I said, more entertaining to watch as well. The others all boring and miserable.
