Well, not the greatest start to the tournament, but now we're into the longer format, we know the lie of the land for our bets and we can bet accordingly. These two tips should get us on the right track and I'm confident we can make a healthy profit from this tournament.
Klaasen to beat Part - 5/6 @ Blue Square Just going on first round form alone, Klaasen would be the pick. He looked in great form against the in-form Ronnie Baxter and is playing some good darts. John Part's game is a bit shaky at the moment, especially with him trying to change his darts and his throwing style. If Klaasen can find the consistency, there's no reason why he can't give Part a drubbing. We think this price is just far too generous and would have had Klaasen shorter if we were pricing this match ourselves.

Painter to beat King - 11/10@ William Hill. Again, going on first round form alone, Painter would be favourite. He scored heavily last night and hit his doubles under pressure. King didn't look too solid on his scoring or his doubles against Louis Blundell and a more experienced darts player might have punished him for it. Should be a toss of the coin, perhaps favouring Painter with his recent win over King being the deciding factor.

So, there we go, the two tips that are sure to get us back on the right track and in clover.
