ZOMG HE DID IT

Probably shouldn't ZOMG as we thought it was going to happen, but he did, Jose de Sousa denied Wade his (insert number here) major title, with a beautiful 158 checkout to seal the championship. Unbelievable performance, moves him up to third in the post restart scoring table, and more importantly, it does this to the FRH rankings:

1 Peter Wright
2 Michael van Gerwen
3 Gerwyn Price
4 James Wade (UP 4)
5 Dimitri van den Bergh (UP 1)
6 Michael Smith (DOWN 1)
7 Rob Cross (DOWN 3)
8 Jose de Sousa (UP 12)
9 Nathan Aspinall (DOWN 2)
10 Glen Durrant (DOWN 1)
11 Dave Chisnall (DOWN 1)
12 Ian White (DOWN 1)
13 Krzysztof Ratajski
14 Gary Anderson (UP 1)
15 Daryl Gurney (DOWN 3)
16 Joe Cullen (DOWN 2)
17 Simon Whitlock (UP 1)
18 Jonny Clayton (DOWN 2)
19 Mensur Suljovic (DOWN 2)
20 Danny Noppert (DOWN 1)

No new players - Petersen is within a first round win at the Players Championships of getting into the top 20, Damon Heta is up to #43 after his good run, while Adam Hunt reaches the top 64.

Now onto the Players Championships - sadly missing Jeff Smith and Mensur Suljovic for various reasons, thoughts especially are out to Mensur at this time, looks like apart from Mensur the biggest names in the FRH rankings that are missing out are Hopp, West, Pipe, Klaasen and Meulenkamp, while Krcmar is the only player now not in the top 100 (adjusted to include first round money). I'll go through the first round over the next couple of days assuming we don't get any more withdrawals, at least now it'll be a straight swap.

Meanwhile, we've had some player come through from China who looks to be a free win in the worlds for whoever plays him, and we do now know it'll be held at the worlds. But people on Twitter - do you really, honestly think there'll ever be a crowd? Have you seen how much of a lockdown nutjob Khan is? He'd give his right arm to bypass science and put London in the highest level of restrictions.
