UK Open aftermath

Huge fucking congratulations to Nathan Aspinall, while it's a touch annoying that I couldn't get paid on my Price bets (greened it out before the semi final so it wasn't a total loss), as a Stockport lad I'm so pleased he's managed to back up the worlds semi and claim a major title. I'm also super chuffed for Cross, he's had some doubters and while he didn't bring it in the final (neither did to be fair), it should at least keep some people quiet for a bit. He's been playing good darts.

New FRH rankings:

1 Michael van Gerwen
2 Rob Cross
3 Gary Anderson
4 Michael Smith
5 Gerwyn Price (UP 1)
6 Daryl Gurney (DOWN 1)
7 Peter Wright
8 James Wade
9 Mensur Suljovic
10 Nathan Aspinall (UP 7)
11 Simon Whitlock (DOWN 1)
12 Dave Chisnall (DOWN 1)
13 Ian White (DOWN 1)
14 Jonny Clayton (DOWN 1)
15 Darren Webster (DOWN 1)
16 Adrian Lewis (DOWN 1)
17 Joe Cullen (DOWN 1)
18 Stephen Bunting
19 Steve West (UP 1)
20 Mervyn King (NEW)

Only the people that went deep really moved, there's not enough money in this event to shift anything lower down, all the quarter final losers were well down the rankings. Phil's finally out of the top 20, Beaton rises to 24, Payne is up to 46, Smith is 57 and Stevenson is 61.

My plan for this week is to update the Second/Third Division Darts on Tuesday when I've got a day off, other than that, any weird stats based things you want me to take a poke at? Leave me a comment.
