Scott Mitchell was 3-1 down but just broke back I think to make it 3-2.

EDIT - no, seems the break was the 6th leg, so its now 3-3

McKinstry v Williams has started.
Williams won the bull and the first leg in 18 darts with McKinstry having been unable to take out 81 with 6 darts.
McKinstry going crazy with his scoring again in leg 2. 86 after 9 darts, and took 7 darts from there.

Cruel draw for both of them. Q School really needs some kind of seeding.
No it doesn't.
Leaving aside the nightmare of how you'd actually go about seeding it, it is by it's very nature supposed to be cut-throat.
The PDC seeds all but one event (UK Open) they have. They obviously don't want it to the cut-throat.
Some of the qualifiers have rankings on:
PDC OOM
PDC Challenge Tour OOM
BDO rankings
WDF rankings if they wanted to as well.

If it were winner takes all (e.g. Women's PDC World Championship qualifiers), it wouldn't be such a problem because theoretically the best player will win.
But with multiple winners each day and more people qualifying through a table, the random draw increases the negative impact of luck.

I'm fine with an open draw. Firstly, they have 5 chances to qualify (finish in the top two in any of the four days and if that doesn't work can still make it through the table). Second, how would you go about seeding a competition with players from different codes? Not just PDC, BDO, but also bedroom masters like DBG?

It's unworkable IMO.
