I just love this tournament as regardless of how many times I hear classic Xmas songs it never really feels like Christmas to me until the PDC World Championship starts.
Round one starts on Thursday 15th December and concludes on Thursday 22nd where it will either make or break the player’s Christmas.

Jamie Cavan v Kevin Painter (7.10pm)
I was surprised to see Kevin Painter being the favourite to win this one as he has had a poor two years or so and is a player that we don’t really see on TV as much as we used to. These two have met three times and Kevin won all three matches, but I have to side with the outsider here who has had more success this year.
Jaime Lewis v Mick McGowan (8pm)
Jamie is one of a group of young players that is getting better every season. Mick doesn’t do well in this tournament and the best that he has managed was the last 32 twice and that was way back in 2007 & 2008
