PDC Worlds start tomorrow night. Can Taylor sign off his career with a tournament victory? I doubt it, to be honest. Had a sneaky bet on Rob Cross to win, had a brilliant 2017 and now in the World Top 20. Difficult to look past MvG though.

Agreed.

A total one-off, like Ronnie at snooker this bloke is a different class above the rest. He's the only one that can beat himself if his head isn't right.

Could of won it earlier, I thought he'd missed his chance, but came back beautifully. For a bloke in his 60's that was some achievement. :thup:

How does VIP at the darts work?

I've had front centre table seats before - do you get a box somewhere?

VIP at Ally Pall usually means the area to the other side of the walk on

You can access back stage and the practice table area etc etc

In the good old days of Circus Tavern, the VIP was great. Remember sinking a few pints with Barney, and chucking a few drunken arrows with Steve Beaton on one of the practice boards

Lakeside still the best venue though IMHO. Shame the darts has been so poor for a decade

Got tickets for the evening session tonight.

Van Gerwen v Van Barneveld
Anderson v Taylor

25 World Championships between the four of them. Absolutely buzzing!

This Van Gerwen vs Cross match is utterly compelling. What a player Cross is turning out to be.
