TA Pro Tour 27

We're in the home stretch now, with effectively the penultimate weekend - I'll try and get through it as best I can, as my mind has just exploded at the end of leg 2 of Ross Smith/Lisa Ashton - Lisa, needing 121, goes for bull (with Smith not on a finish, naturally), hits 9 instead, so returns on 41, hits 9, then 8, then 4, states 21 (yes), corrects herself to 23, Dawson is equally clueless, and returns on 8 somehow? I'll have to watch a replay to see exactly what happens, but it's the most inexplicable thing I've seen in darts in years.

Wait, scratch that, the BDO counties voted Jacklin back onto the board, so for years, read days, but for now I'll post up the event 27 draw, in case anyone's got their finger on the pulse and wants to see who their favourite player has drawn, then edit the results once the sim has been done. We have a repeat of yesterday's final in round one ladies and gents, and a repeat of the nine dart magic match from the actual darts of late...

Ian White 6-4 Nathan Derry

Michael van Gerwen 6-0 Jelle Klaasen
Ian White 6-5 Danny Noppert

Michael van Gerwen 6-2 Ian White

A second final in three events for White, but it wouldn't be a second win as van Gerwen claims a fourth win of the season to move within 1k of Wright at the top of the table with just three events left. Despite a second miracle quarter final run Steve Brown is still way off qualification, Klaasen's semi should make him safe, Pipe still has work to do but that quarter will help a lot, while a board win for Max Hopp probably makes him safe, the same for Wilson keeps him within striking distance. Another nice run for Nathan Derry who's popped up in a few board finals, he's up to 10k and only a grand behind the current cutoff, so who knows?

Event 28 sees everyone in the current top 24 playing, so chances to pick up money for those on the bubble may be limited, event 29 may be better with no Wright, White, Chisnall, Lewis, Hughes, de Sousa or Cadby. I might do one later, probably watch a bit of the remote darts. Oh look, you know how Geert Nentjes won a TA Pro Tour? He's two out of two tonight.
