    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 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.

    Another good win for Gurney. Hopefully this next match is a cracker.

    Can't believe Gary got it to 9-9 and threw first, but then got 43, 60 and 59 on his first 3 visits. MVG was about 300 ahead after 9 darts each.
     
  6. Youth finalists 22 and 24. Bit of a farce really.

    Especially when DVDB got to the quarter finals of the real thing just 11 months ago and played so well.

    This. If they're old enough to drink, they should be in with the big boys. Leave the youth competition for the under 18s.
    The lad that won would probably do ok in the senior group anyway.

    So this starts a week tonight. With the new format, I'm not seeing many interesting first round matches apart from the two women's and one or two others. Clever by Sky / Matchroom to have 1 2nd round match each session as I could see a fair few sacking off the first round until the top 32 enter.

  20. Bit disappointing really as doesn't really getting going until after Christmas, then again that was pretty much the same under the old system.
