That was the tournament that was

van Gerwen won. Who knew? Rob wasn't exactly playing badly, just a nice spurt at the end for MvG and that was that. New FRH rankings:

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

Not a huge amount of movement at the top end - obviously Cross's final will bump him up a bit, but Cullen getting deep didn't see him shift a huge amount, Searle going up is primarily because 16 through 18 are incredibly close, nothing more than that.

Lower down, Keane Barry is one place outside the top 40 which I'm pretty sure he has broken before, Ryan Joyce has now passed Ian White in a battle of players that could really use a result tomorrow, Scott Williams has hit the top 50 just ahead of his fellow Williams, namely Jim, while Matt Campbell rockets into the top 60. Cameron Menzies is just outside the top 75, and Ricardo Pietreczko has solidified a top 100 spot.

PDPA qualifier tomorrow, then the worlds draw after that. Draw is expected at half six UK time, I'm not going to immediately watch the draw, I'm likely going to be out to watch the Portugal/Uruguay game, and then come back afterwards to, hopefully spoiler free, do a reaction stream on Twitch and give some really brief thoughts on everything before diving in to deeper analysis. I may well chat shit during the PDPA qualifier while doing other stuff in the afternoon. Search for darts on Twitch and you'll probably find me.
