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. Continue reading “Players Championship 19 & 20 Entries!”

World Number 73 Joe Murnan caused a major shock as he beat Dave Chisnall 6-4 to win his maiden PDC title, in the tenth Players Championship event of 2015 in Crawley. Murnan, who does NOT hold a PDC tour-card, has now given himself a great chance of qualifying for the World Matchplay this July.

Murnan overcame a plethora of talented players en route to victory, beating Vincent van der Voort 6-4 in the opening round. Van der Voort came agonisingly close to knocking out Michael van Gerwen yesterday and the Dutch Destroyer has been a prominent feature in the latter stages of tournaments this year.
