The first night of the Grand Slam of Darts, and we we had a couple of shocks, with James Wade putting in a shocking performance against Arron Monk, and Mark Webster found some form, beating 2010 Grand Slam of Darts Champion Scott Waites. There were routine wins for Phil Taylor, Simon Whitlock, while Robert Thornton got the first whitewash of the tournament, beating Ted Hankey 5-0. Kevin Painter, Michael van Gerwen and Mervyn King also picked up wins in their first matches of this year's GSOD.
Tonight we have two sessions, with last night's winners facing off against each other in the evening, after Groups E-H get underway this afternoon.
As usual, I'm running the Premium Tips service, which will provide you with betting tips for every day of the 2012 Grand Slam of Darts. The Premium Picks went 3-5 last night, and the Free Darts Betting Tip went 0-1 thanks to Dean Winstanley's inability to hit doubles when he needs them the most.
If you want to get involved in the action just click the link below.
Each darts tournament's Premium Picks will be on offer for £10, so that will be the following:
Grand Slam of Darts 10-18 November
PDC World Championship 13 December - 1 January 2013
BDO World Championship 5 January - 13 January 2013
So, for an outlay of £10 for each tournament, you can't really go wrong.
