Durrant higher then Wright.....hmmmm
Odds are closely linked to money wagered as the bookmakers always look to balance their books.
Obviously they expect more money to be wagered on Durrant to win than Wright.
I guess they also look at Matchplay form.

However with the double start would also want to consider prior history with format.
Has Durrant ever played double start before ?
You can only go on what his doubling is like normally.
Which was pretty good last week.
And at the end of the day. Anyone can have a nightmare at the WGP with it.

Question for Mac if he is reading. Any particular reason why Kyle has not entered PC 25 and 26, given that his non entry means he is out of the Grand Prix.

Have to say looking forward to this tournament.

Historically have been in Tenerife every year during this event, but this year am not flying out to the Rife until Monday 21st October, so will be watching from the comfort of my armchair for a change.

The dynamic of the double start makes such a huge difference, and the players who adapt to the format best will be the ones who give themselves a chance to progress to the latter stages of the tournament. For instance Michael Smith has articulated that he puts no extra emphasis on his doubles as the bed on the outer ring is huge in comparison to the treble, so for him, if he is in good form on the trebles, he will hit the doubles. Probably will be proved wrong, just for a change, but for me this perspective means I have discounted Bullyboy as a potential winner.

From memory, and I could be wrong, but think Gary articulated a similar viewpoint in his early days of playing the Grand Prix.

Also felt Mardle talked a lot of sense in his interview with LiveDarts which I posted on here, suggesting the choice of starting double with the first 3 darts would be key. Most players will go for tops with their first dart, but should they miss below the double, Wayne articulates that they should switch to 16s. In fact he does advise that going for the 16s to start with could be the best option for those players who favour 32 as their best double.

Have to say my favourite ever memory of this forum was when I was in Tenerife watching the 2015 Final on Saturday 10th October when former poster Ifm, clearly having imbibed copious amounts of Fusilier, articulated that MVG would be instructed by the PDC to spot Robert Thornton sets to make the Final interesting, only for the Thorn to win the tournament.

Am going to find his post and bump it purely for comedic value.

This is without a doubt the strongest field ever assembled for the Grand Prix.

Every player capable of winning their 1st Round match regardless of whom they draw.

The days of Andy Callaby or Adrian Gray beating Taylor and being seen as a huge shock are well and truly over.
