Jabba takes part in the worlds biggest darts tournament this weekend, as he takes his place in the PDC 2016 World Darts Championships. With a £300,000 first prize, and £10,000 on offer to first round losers, this is the greatest ever prize in darts.
It’s all being shown live on Sky Sports, which has it’s own 24/7 darts channel during the three weeks of the tournament.
Jamie’s first game at the worlds is Saturday afternoon, against the winner of a prelim game.
Round 1: Jamie Caven 3-0 Rob Szabo
Round 2: Jamie Caven 4-0 Ricky Evans
A perfect game for Jabba, his finishing (60%) is spot on, with lots of two/three darts combos. He never lets Ricky get into the game at all, and it’s over before anyone has time to make a cup of tea! Jabba loses just one leg in the game, and that’s two games now without dropping a set.
Round 3: Jamie Caven 1-4 James Wade

It’s the special format “Double in double out” World Grand Prix time – and every dart is live on Sky Sports.
Ian White kicks off his tournament against his mate, practice partner, and travel mate Ian ‘Diamond’ White – just typical of those darts draws, they never take friendship into account! Both players will be trying their hardest to win though – friendship counts for little on the oche, and they both understand that.
Make sure you watch live on Sky Sports, from 7pm, Monday 5th October. The first round is best of 3 sets, each set requiring 3 legs to win.

2-1 – Caven hits back with his first leg of the contest.
