Price wins in Riesa, film at 11

I guess nobody saw that coming at all. Pretty decent final, only really the one critical sixth leg which ended up being truly costly. Clayton and Aspinall made the semis, the Aspinall win in the quarters locking in around a third of a unit profit over the course of the tournament, which can't be sniffed at. So Price will hold the world number one spot for a bit longer, but what about the FRH rankings?

1 Peter Wright
2 Gerwyn Price
3 Michael Smith
4 James Wade
5 Michael van Gerwen
6 Jonny Clayton
7 Gary Anderson
8 Rob Cross
9 Jose de Sousa
10 Joe Cullen
11 Dimitri van den Bergh
12 Ryan Searle
13 Krzysztof Ratajski
14 Luke Humphries
15 Dave Chisnall
16 Nathan Aspinall
17 Dirk van Duijvenbode
18 Mervyn King
19 Danny Noppert
20 Stephen Bunting

There's actually zero movement. You expect that with all of the money going to the top 2 spots to some extent, but at the same time you think there might be some shuffling. Aspinall's now a lot closer to Chisnall than he was, but that seems to be about it. Lewy Williams is now in the top 64, Kcuik is up into the top 100, Raman will likely be in the top 150 in the morning as he's just outside now, while Springer's good weekend sees him appear at 173.

Now on to the UK Open. We are expecting the draw tomorrow, I'll probably go through it in four posts, one looking at eight possible players to get through to round four each. It'll be a busy week, but a fun week.
