If we assume the Dutchman gets to the final you're looking for two to beat both the Welshman and the Dutchman. The Welshman may be most vulnerable early on so let's go for William O'Connor at 400/1 with Spoilsports and Luke Humphries at 80/1 (not great value, IMO) generally available.

couldnt have O Connor but will look at the other one .

I'm on the Treble fer a small few quid; Steve Lennon (4/7), William O'Connor (3/10) and Keane Barry (9/4).
And added a smaller staked Quad including Brendan Dolan (2/1) fer an Irish night.
And had a bigger Saver on the First Two named selections.
Fook sake ! Fell at the First hurdle !

Indeed... and he (Lennon) played well, to be honest... probably his best performance since the world cup. I still reckon he'll come good eventually, when he's on form it all looks effortless - plenty of road ahead anyway as he's still only 26. Irish hopes rest with the young Cork man and William O'Connor who has progressed quite nicely from the world cup and is capable of beating anyone... but up against arguably the second best player in the world, Welshman Gerwyn Price, in round 2.

Again... Three of the four games last night went to the outsider of two, including Luke Woodhouse at 49/10.

Jeez... Fallon Skerrock @ 8/1.

I wouldn't fancy being in Ted Evett's boots fer the next 10 years or so, it will be a 'Neil Armstrong' job, nobody will remember the 2nd guy beaten by a burd in the Ally Pally but everyone will remember the First !

@ Rats, What happened Keane Barry ?
I was only following the scores online on a gambling site and saw him getting hammered and managed to save a few quid on VDV to win 3-0 as I reckoned Barry had totally cracked under the pressure.

He wasn't hammered but it all happened very fast. He threw a 92 average - same as Lennon, significantly better than O'Connor (88) and a bit better than Teehan (90) - 19 * 100+, 16 * 140+ and 3 * 180s and the first two sets went 3-2. Not bad for a 17 year old in his first World Championship. I suspect we'll see a lot more of him going forward. 

With the Cork man in the mix now as well there ought to be some competition among the Irish for the world cup places over the next few years. I reckon Lennon introducing competition last year (overtaking Mick and Willie) in the rankings was the kick up the arse Willie needed!

They all play better on the floor... I've watched McGowan throw 10/11/12 dart legs for fun down the bar... and there's one or two that can give him a game in that environment. However, you don't earn STG£65,000/year (a la O'Connor & Lennon) down the bar or get STG£7,500 for losing one game (Barry) or STG£15,000 for winning one (Teehan). Sure even our Horsey would struggle to make that in his cab over the whole month of December.

Maybe Chris Dobey, then. 90/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.

Poor girl is being hijacked by the Girl Power mongs to further their feminazi curusade.....she's just an ordinary darts player in reality...nothing like the little Japanese wunderkind with her baby shark walk-on.........


Feel sorry for Sherrock as she's probably going to get a walloping down the line. Hopefully, Suzuki joins the PDC ranks soon although she's made millions from soft-tip Darts in Indo-China and the USA..nice to see her back this Jan on Quest HD.
