Post-Stuttgart update

Good god, Humphries is absolutely destroying it, three Euro Tours in the bank now, two in two weekends, Cross now with an unbelievable 0-7 record in Euro Tour finals. Surely he gets one soon, he's playing well enough. FRH ranking update:

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

Clearly Luke is the big gainer, but back to back finals for Cross has seen him get above Clayton for now. Ando's continued absence from the Euro Tour sees him drop outside of the top 10, while Heta's steady accumulation has got him up into the top 16. Lower down, people who've got at least 5k over the last two Euro Tours include Dolan (#22), Gurney (#25), van der Voort (#26), Ross Smith (#30), Schindler (#37), Lewis (#40), Rowby (#43) is making big gains with back to back final sessions, Lukeman (#65) will hit the top 64 probably tomorrow on continual adjustments, Gawlas (#67), and finally Mansell (#86).

It's a real interesting question as to how many players are better than Humphries right now. I've got him at fifth in scoring in 2022, behind van Gerwen, Anderson (albeit he's not even played 250 legs, Humphries has LOST more than that), Heta and Wright. I'm pretty pleased that Luke, at least on the book I placed my each way punt on a couple of weeks ago he's now 20/1 compared to 33/1 which I've got. Mushnt grumble.
