Players Championship 5&6 in Wigan

Another weekend on the tour for Jabba, and this Saturday and Sunday saw the PDC ProTour weekend in Wigan.

The Robin Park Tennis Centre hosted 128 players over two days, and in each competition as they competed for the £10,000 first prize and £50,000 in total prize money.  The games are ‘behind closed doors’, with no public allowed, and are the real bread n butter of a professional darts player.

It may not be on TV, but the prize money on offer is high, and very important across the year!

Players Championship 5

Round 1:  Jamie Caven (11) 6-1 Steve Grubb
Round 2:  Jamie Caven 6-3 Kevin Thomas
Round 3:  Michael Smith 6-2 Jamie Caven

£500 won, with Jabba going out to the young talent Smith, who went on to the final.

Players Championship 6

11th seed Jabba was blown away by an on fire Mansell on Sunday.
