Players Championship 19 & 20 Entries!

darts-board

The entries for the final two Players Championship events of the year have been confirmed, as the race to qualify for the Players Championship Finals in Minehead heats up.

The two £75,000 tournaments will be hosted at the Barnsley Metrodome on October 21-22nd, and the double-header will be streamed live on PDC.TV. A field of 128 players will compete in each tournament, comprised of PDC Tour Card Holders and PDPA Associate Members.

It will be a decisive weekend for a host of big-names, as players bid to win qualification for the Cash Converters Players Championship Finals next month as well as places in the William Hill World Darts Championship.

However, 16-time world champion Phil Taylor has not entered either event, therefore ‘The Power’ will not qualify for next month’s Players Championship Finals. The 56-year-old has gained £3,500 in prize money from his two Players Championship events this year and subsequently sits 108th on the rolling Order of Merit.

Only the top 64 players on the Players Championship Order of Merit will compete in Minehead, and five-time world champion Raymond van Barneveld will be vying to secure qualification when he competes in Barnsley next weekend.

Van Barneveld returned to Pro Tour action last month after a six-month hiatus, and a solid showing in September’s triple-header catapulted him from 117th to 63rd on the Order of Merit. Therefore, a decent showing in next weekend’s triple-header should be sufficient for Barney to seal his qualification for the Players Championship Finals.

Phil Taylor won’t be the only big-name absentee in Barnsley, as world number one Michael van Gerwen has opted to take the weekend off. ‘The Green Machine’ has enjoyed a stunning run of recent form, amassing an astonishing £191,000 in ranking prize money over the last month.

Additionally, Van Gerwen has won four of the last five Players Championship events, which has guaranteed him top spot on the Order of Merit. MvG has been questioned in some quarters over his relentless participation on the Pro Tour, therefore he’s taken the opportunity to recharge the batteries ahead of an extremely hectic few months.

World champion Gary Anderson won’t be competing on Friday, although he has entered Saturday’s event. Elsewhere, Peter Wright, Adrian Lewis and James Wade will be competing across both days in Barnsley, and Snakebite is set to be the top seed in Van Gerwen’s absence.

It’s als an extremely important weekend for a number of other players. Former major finalists Andy Hamilton and Wes Newton are currently set to miss out on qualification for the Players Championship Finals, as is Paul Nicholson, who won the tournament back in 2010.
