It was another great night of darts, with John Bowles and Jamie Caven competing in what could be the match of the first round. Both men came out swinging, they kept pummeling away at each other, and Bowles came out a 3-2 winner after Caven capitulated in the final two legs of the match. It was a great performance and capped off a great night of darts. We started off with Peter Wright doing just as we expected, winning 3-0 against a lackluster Arron Monk. His banter about Michael van Gerwen afterwards will make their encounter a bit more interesting. Then Bowles came through a tight qualifying match with Carlos Rodriguez to set up his match with Caven. Mark Webster put in a fantastic performance to brush aside Ian White 3-1, and James Wade looked in good form as he knocked out Peter Hudson 3-0.
