Well folks where do we start after last night’s action? My tip for glory Keegan Brown had an absolute shocker as his internet failed after just one match.
He tried to re-boot it, but that didn’t work. He then tried a 3G connection and that failed as well! How disappointing. The 5-3 defeat Brown suffered in his opener against Conan Whitehead was then wiped out.
The group was revised down to just three players, with each playing one another twice. Max Hopp went on to win the group, and despite all that upheaval, my NAP was a winner last night @ 9/2 as Mike de Decker beat Hopp by a 5-3 scoreline.
Here’s hoping for more of the same today folks…
7.30pm – Steve Beaton v Callan Rydz
Former World No.1 and 1996 BDO World Champion Steve Beaton is the main attraction for Day 13 of the PDC Home Tour tonight.
Callan ‘The Riot’ Rydz, 21, from Newcastle went out in the first round at the World Championships, but has two wins to his name on the Challenge Tour and Development Tour. Both are highly competitive and this event seems to suit players who have come from there.
So my bet of the day is the shock result in the first game of the night. I fancy Rydz to do a job on Beaton. The older guys seem to be more worried about their internet connection in their openers!
7.55pm Matthew Edgar v Carl Wilkinson
What a character Matthew Edgar is! The man dubbed ‘primetime’ has his own YouTube channel called Edgar TV, where he talks about what he is going to do and other daft stuff. It’s very amateurish but a good laugh.
He is threatening to come on via his lift today as he lives in an apartment. The lift was broken last time he tried it. However, it is fixed now, and he’s going to do his walk-on from it!
He played in the World Championship the last two years, losing in the first round on both occasions. He takes on Carl Wilkinson, a 35-year old from Bradford, who won his tour card last year. He won the Polish Open back when he was in the BDO, but I’m thinking Edgar for the win… if he doesn’t get distracted by his lift tonight.
10 YEARS AGO TODAY ?
On April 29th 2010 Raymond van Barneveld sent the Aberdeen crowd into a frenzy, raising the roof with a superb nine-darter in the Premier League!
