Day One of the 2013 UK Open is in the history books, and it wasn't so much a night of shocks as a night of the big guns doing what they do best. Solid performances from the likes of James Wade, Phil Taylor doing the business. However, shock defeats for Dean Winstanley, Justin Pipe, Vincent van der Voort and Colin Osborne do prove that anything can happen in the UK Open. To be fair, however, those four men haven't been lighting up the oche in 2013, so maybe, just maybe, some of you got on their opponens at fancy prices.
Tonight the rest of the PDC big guns enter the show, and of course the match of the round is going to be Michael van Gerwen versus Mervyn King. There's a bit of a rivalry building between these two, and King will be looking to stop the Dutchman's unbelievable run of form. Can he do it? Well, he has to lose at some point, doesn't he? In other big games, we start with an all-Wales clash as two former World Champions face each other in the shape of Richie Burnett and Mark Webster. It's another all-World Champion clash next on Board One as John Part takes on Ted Hankey, Phil Taylor takes on Ronny Huybrechts before the main event of King and Van Gerwen. Elsewhere, Wes Newton faces Simon Whitlock, John Henderson takes on Scott Rand an an interesting encounter, James Wade takes on the in-form Jamie Caven, Brendan Dolan goes up against Colin Lloyd and Gary Anderson will be looking to get back to winning ways against Andy Smith. There are many more matches, but those, for me, are the highlights of Round Three of the 2013 UK Open.
