Post-Riesa FRH rankings

Damn, didn't think de Decker would get that close to Price. Nobody else did, Gerwyn seems clearly the best player in the world right now. Updated FRH rankings anyway:

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

Only real movements are as a result of Searle and Dobey not playing/qualifying for this one, and the places could easily be nicked back. Lower down, Schindler's semi final gets him up to #23, de Decker has reached the top 45, while Niko Springer's nice run sees him into the top 150.

We've got a little bit more than a week between events now as this upcoming one is the Easter one running Saturday-Monday. Going to be interesting to see Maendl-Lawrence again, van Peer back in a PDC event, Adam Warner in there as well as a rare appearance for van Dongen. Assuming Humphries is better, the seedings give us a tasty Price/Smith last sixteen. Meanwhile, Luke Littler continued his tear up of the Development Tour with a second title, putting him in a very commanding position right now, nearly four grand ahead of his nearest challenger and nearly four and a half ahead of the first player who doesn't have a tour card. Obviously it's easy in retrospect to say we saw this coming, but we saw this coming.

Back Friday evening I think.
