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.

2-0 – Double three sees White move two legs up.
2-1 – Caven hits back with his first leg of the contest.

1-2 – Caven follows a 180 with a 76 finish to move ahead in the set.
2-2 – White lands a 180, and is again given a reprieve for missed doubles as Caven misses his chance to claim the set, as the Stoke thrower posts double one to move a leg away from the win.
3-2 – White fires in his fourth maximum of the game before finishing 81 on double 12 to seal the win.
