Schedule of Play

Friday 2nd November (From 7pm) (First Round)

Raymond Smith v Keegan Brown Prediction – Keegan Brown

The former World Youth Champion is strongly fancied to take the win over his Australian opponent in this first-round match.

Maik Langendorf v Damon Heta Prediction – Maik Lagendorf

Not much to go on with these two players. However preference is for the German qualifier who should be good enough to take the win over his Australian rival.

Ian White v Kyle Anderson Prediction – Kyle Anderson

Ian White was very disappointing in last weekend’s European Championship in Dortmund and may be vulnerable to Kyle Anderson who is always a dangerous opponent and is fancied for the win in this match on current form.

Dave Chisnall v Dawson Murchell Prediction – Dave Chisnall

Chizzy was a big disappointment last weekend at the European Championships when losing comprehensively to Gerwyn Price but he is fancied to have too much for his young Canadian opponent in this first round match-up.

Jamie Lewis v Dimitri van der Bergh Prediction – Dimitri van der Bergh

The current PDC World Youth Champion is fancied to beat his Welsh rival who hasn’t shown the same level of form as he did around this time last year so it’s a win for The Dreammaker (van der Bergh) in this one for me.

Gerwyn Price v Royden Lam Prediction – Gerwyn Price

Gerwyn Price comes into this in great form having only lost narrowly (10-9) in the quarter-finals to eventual winner James Wade at last weekend’s European Championship in Germany and is strongly fancied to take the win.

Steve Beaton v Daryl Gurney Prediction – Daryl Gurney

Two players who will be feeling they haven’t been playing to their full potential of late and one will get a confidence boosting win in this and a chance to get a run going in this tournament. Daryl Gurney looks the most likely to do just that.

Ross Smith v James Wade Prediction Prediction – James Wade

Last weekend’s European Champion will be brimming with confidence coming into this tournament and should be too strong for his opponent in this first round tie.
