This tournament is probably the one that is treated with the least amount of seriousness and prestige by the players. A lot of players tend to combine the darts with a holiday and a bit of time gambling. There’s always an odd atmosphere at the venue too due to the games all taking place in the morning and very small crowds in comparison with the rest of the tv tournaments. It takes place over 5 days in early July and has been played in a legs based format for the past 2 years. A feature of this tournament is the early rounds being a very short format which always lends itself to shocks as in a race to 6 any of the top 50 are capable of running 3 or 4 very quick legs to gain a huge advantage. Phil Taylor has the best record of anyone here with 4 wins in the tournament history but one player who is worth looking out for is Wes Newton who seems to reserve his best for Las Vegas despite showing very little elsewhere.
