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.
We'll have to agree to disagree on this.
Firstly, I can't see any fair way of seeding this when you've got players coming who've spent the last 12 months playing in completely different competitions and under different organisations. If you can come up with a fair way of seeding it, fair play to you.
If the seedings are therefore arbitrary, and not based upon a meritocracy, then what's the point of having them?

Yes, with a blind draw you'll see your fair share of "unlucky" draws, but in my opinion that's preferable to stacking the deck with a seeding system which isn't fit for purpose.

seedings are BS, its just a way to make sure you get some big names into later stages.

Sherrock had a decent chance to break for the win here but just lobbed two crap throws in.
