Just heard the commentator mention that and I've had a quick look on wiki about the format and I'm not sure what I think:Lisa Ashton won today so she's at Ally Pally
2019 PDC World Darts Championship - Wikipedia
Lisa will be an interesting addition for obvious reasons and she can also hoy a good dart so will be a banana skin, but I'm not sure what I think of the top 32 now being seeded. It might show the depth and what not, but I'm not really sure if I can be bothered with first round matches like:
Wayne Jones vs Nitin Kumar
Alan Tabern vs Jim Long
Mickey Mansell vs Boris Koltsov
Ryan Searle vs James Bailey
etc etc etc.
Not sure what the format is in the first round, but might give that a miss until the seeds come in.
I guess actually it will be similarish to the BDO matches which I normally watch anyway, but it does feel like it's just diluting the quality.
