Player Championship 13&14; KO Kellett in Wigan
Two more player championship floor tournament events in this weekend, and they are a little different as the top 16 players in the world are all ‘barred’, as they had the new Coral Masters to take part in in Edinburgh. So a great chance for the rest of the PDC tour, including Stuart, to take advantage and win more ranking £’s! Stuart goes into the event seeded 7th, and the last player to receive a bye in round 1.
Monday is also an important day, as it’s the Grand Slam of Darts wild-card qualifiers, where four spots are available for the Sky Sports televised event next week.
The £50,000 tournament features 121 players, who are competing for the £10,000 first prize. All games during the event are the best of 11 legs, with play commencing at 12pm.
