A sad week for the darting world this week, with the sad passing of the legendary Jocky Wilson. The Premier League night in Cardiff will honour the great man with a minute's tribute before the action begins. Tonight sees Adrian Lewis in double duty tonight, as Gary Anderson is missing due to a family bereavement. So, not the happiest week in the PDC world, but I'm sure the action tonight will make up for it.
As mentioned above, Adrian Lewis is on double duty tonight, opening up against Andy Hamilton, before taking on Raymond van Barneveld in the final match of the night. In between, Simon Whitlock faces James Wade in what has the potential to be a fantastic match, and Phil Taylor will be looking to continue his Premier League dominance when he takes on Kevin Painter. The double duty makes the night different to most other nights in the PDC Premier League, but different isn't always bad. For fans of Adrian Lewis, it's a great thing! So, the action comes from Cardiff, which is not only a beautiful city, but there's a rich darts history there and the crowd love their darts. I have no doubt that the crowd will act a special something to tonight's action.
Before we go any further, I want to remind you that Darts Betting tips now runs a Premium Picks service which runs along side the free Darts Betting Tips. There will still be one free darts betting tip published every week for the 2012 Premier League, and the rest will be in the Premium Picks section, which you can access below.
Each tournament will be on offer for £10, so that will be the following:
Premier League - 6 weeks from 29 March to 17 May (you can sign up right until the final dart is thrown on 17 May)

World Matchplay 21-29 July
World Grand Prix 8-14 October
Grand Slam of Darts 10-18 November
Players Championship Finals (TBC)

So, for an outlay of £10 for each tournament, you can't really go wrong. And remember, it's not just the tips that you're buying, but write-ups and also the rapport we've built up over all this time. I mean what would a darts tournament be without my write-ups to go along with them? And if my Premier League Premium Tips don't return a profit, you get your UK Open Premier Picks for FREE, as long as you register before the 2012 Premier League Darts Final!
