Player Championship Events 1&2; Jabba on Tour

Player Championship Events 1&2; Jabba on Tour

Jabba has started 2013 well, after the eight UK Open qualifiers he qualified 13th on £3,600, which means he enters the Bolton TV Finals in the 3rd round, missing out the dangerous first night’s games.   The UK Open finals are of course televised live on Sky Sports, so make sure you watch!

Players Championship 1
Robin Park Tennis Centre, Wigan – May 4

Round 1:  Jamie Caven (29) 6-3 Keegan Brown
Round 2:  Tomas Seyler 6-4 Jamie Caven

Players Championship 2
Robin Park Tennis Centre, Wigan – May 5

Round 1:  Jamie Caven (27) 6-5 Ryan De Vreede
Round 2:  Jamie Caven 6-1 Prakash Jiwa
Round 3:  Jamie Caven 6-5 Raymond van Barneveld
Round 4:  Ronnie Baxter 6-5 Jamie Caven

Jamie ended the hopes of Raymond van Barneveld in the third round with a brilliant 144 finish to win the deciding leg of their clash, only to have Ronnie Baxter do the same to him in the next game!  A solid weekend, with £1,250 won over the two days.

Coming Darts

It’s a busy PDC calendar at the moment, with plenty of darts to be played.  Next up is the third European tour event, the European Darts Open.   It takes place at the Maritim Hotel, in Dusseldorf Germany, from 17th – 19th May.   Jamie plays recent PDC tour card winner Paul Amos in round 1, on the main stage last game in the afternoon.

That’s followed a coupleof weeks later by two more player championship events in Wigan, and then Jabba also plays at the European Tour 4 event, the Austrian Open, at the Arena Nova in Wiener Neustadt, which will be held from May 31-June 2.
