Player Championship 13&14; Jabba Top Seed in Wigan

Player Championship 13&14; Jabba Top Seed in Wigan

Two more player championship floor tournament events in this weekend, and they are a little different as the top 16 players in the world are all ‘barred’, as they had the new Coral Masters to take part in in Edinburgh.  So a great chance for the rest of the PDC tour, including the number 1 seed Jamie Caven, to take advantage and win more ranking £’s!  Because of Jabba’s no. 1 seeding, he’s one of the few players to get a bye in round 1.

Monday is also an important day, as it’s the Grand Slam of Darts wild-card qualifiers, where four spots are available for the Sky Sports televised event next week.

The £50,000 tournament features 121 players, who are competing for the £10,000 first prize.  All games during the event are the best of 11 legs, with play commencing at 12pm.
