It was a quiet start to the 2013 PDC World Championship last night, but it could have been explosive if Gino Vos had managed to take the 3rd set. But it wasn't meant to be, and the night was a bit of a shocker aside from that. We had a 3-0 win for Robert Thornton, a 3-0 win for Paul Nicholson and a 3-0 win for Kevin Painter, along with that 3-1 win for Adrian Lewis. The fact the prelim game almost ended in a whitewash summed up the one-sided matches.
The Free Darts Betting Tip got off to a winning start, with Co Stompe scoring more 180s than Paul Nicholson, even though he lost 3-0. So the Free Darts Betting Tip is 1-0 with a profit of +2.44 units. The Premium Picks had a great night, too, going 2-1 and with a profit of +3.94 units.
