What's the Welsh for double?

Price has done it again. I think there's a fair argument to say he's a top 3 active player in the world right now, assuming you consider Anderson inactive. I'll post again once I've punched the numbers into the master computer (got PC5 in before the complete snoozefest that was today's football, but yet to process PC6), but if offered even money, who would you bet on playing against Gerwyn? van Gerwen for sure, I'd probably go Cross as well, but beyond that it's a short list.

Ricky Evans made the final, which coupled with his previous results is making him look really good for Blackpool, while Noppert made a second straight semi, along with Nathan Aspinall. Hendo got a double quarter final, while Ritchie Edhouse won his board and hit a nine along the way.

It became a bad weekend for Darren Webster, Stephen Bunting and Steve West, none of them cashing, while Barney ran into Jermaine Wattimena in the opening round and crashed out. Quite a few early casualties such as Wright, Wade and Suljovic.
