Daily Mirror Grand Slam of Darts - hotting up!

Another set of juicy games tonight – it’s just a shame they start so early in the evening, as I’ll probably miss the start of Lloyd vs Stompe :(

Tonights games are;

  1. Colin Lloyd v Co Stompe
  2. Ted Hankey v Steve Beaton
  3. Scott Waites v Raymond van Barneveld
  4. Ronnie Baxter v Phil Taylor

Will Stompe play up again tonight?  He hit some fantastic big finishes in his last game, and I think he’ll need to do the same tonight if he’s to beat a confident Lloyd, who really seems to be relaxing into this tournament.

The fun continues with Hankey vs. Beaton.  Now my spider senses tell me that Hankey will win this one too.. but Beaton was sublime in his last match – cooler than the Fonz on stage.  So who knows!

Waites vs Barney in the penultimate game… Barney has been throwing pretty well.. at times Scotty has been to hot to handle.  Could be the closest battle of the night.

Last game up two PDC big hitters… Baxter taking on Taylor (without glasses I’m sure).  I would have tipped Baxter, but The Power is back to 100% full beam now, and I can’t see him letting Baxter through this round.
