The draw for round 3 has just been made and play continues at 7pm tonight. Its the best of 17 legs now and the top 32 players from the UK Open Order of Merit (not rankings), including reigning UK Open champion Michael van Gerwen and World Champion Gary Anderson play for the first time.
Pushed for time for a detailed write up.
Monk v Taylor
I was very impressed with “Mad Monk” who was 3-1 down and came back to beat Robert Thornton 6-4. He got an impressive 75% on his doubles, had a respectable 95 average and a ton plus checkout.
I think Monk will win more legs off of Phil than the odds suggest.
BACK Monk +5.5 Legs
WIN DOUBLE – Wade & K Huybrecths
WIN TREBLE – K Anderson, M Webster & Klaasen
Tote & Betfred (2.92)
WIN TREBLE – Caven, Dolan & G Anderson
