The UK Open has managed to creep up on us, no thanks to the new scheduling which has put it in March, and also on ITV. So, this is a bit strange for everyone involved, especially those players playing three UK Open Qualifiers, and also a Premier League Darts match over the course of 4 days. We've got a lot of matches to get through, and thanks to the qualifying structure, as well as the fact there's an open draw, Day One of the UK Open has some huge names playing, and some of them are facing each other. In the first session, well-known names such as John Henderson, Jelle Klassen and Michael Mansell... oh, and one Raymond van Barneveld, all has matches earlier than they would have hoped. In fact, Henderson and Klassen face off against each other in a huge match. We also have Ian White taking on Daryl Gurney, Justin Pipe takes on Dave Chisnall, Mark Webster has a tough match against Mark Walsh, Peter Wright and Michael Smith go head-to-head. We also have Steve Beaton and Brendan Dolan to look forward to, along with Richie Burnett versus Kevin Painter, Ronnie Baxter has a rough draw as he faces Adrian Lewis and Gary Anderson takes on Andy Smith in some of the confirmed matches for later on in what promises to be a stacked day of darts.
