Quick catch up

Events running thick and fast, let's see what's happened:

Michael van Gerwen closed out Hildesheim as expected, only really being troubled by James Wilson as he lost just one leg before an 8-6 final. Apart from Wilson's semi final against Suljovic every single game had a one-sided result, the losers of the other five games in the evening session going down 31-6 in total.

A couple of European Tour qualifiers from the UK yesterday, Wilson also managed a qualifying double to continue good form, Kyle Anderson got there twice which will help a ton given he's close to borderline on some qualification spots, Thornton managed it, as did Ross Smith, who threw decent stuff today, and Ryan Searle, who needs a lot of bank to push to a worlds sport to try to save his card, which would be unfortunate to lose as he's played a lot of good darts for little rewards since 2017 kicked off.

Players Championship 17 today, Wright took it but was in a lot of close tussles, including against Wilson (6-5), a decent semi against Martin Schindler, who had the second highest points per turn of anyone who won their board (behind Gary Anderson), Clemens also averaging quite highly even though he didn't win his board in a decent day for the German contingent. Gurney made the final, still to break through and win something this year, Wade was the last semi finalist who hit a nine in an earlier round, as did van der Voort, a name we've not heard a great deal of recently.

It's PC18 tomorrow and I'll post up FRH rankings after that, then straight to the Netherlands for another European Tour event.
