Any number of them could go top two if they won with 500k on the table I imagine

no they can play both.
So the women can play in both but the men can't? Sounds like double standards to me, although I guess you could make the converse argument about the prize money at Lakeshite.

The men's qualifier you had to be a pdpa member to play in so that's scuppered em.
The ladies qualifier is no more than a marketing tool anyway.

In the easier half of the draw.
A decent shot at going very deep.

I'm not much of a gambler at all.

But I am putting a very small amount on Gando, Price and Ratty.

Cross still on a free ride obviously.
Gary has a final to defend for sure

Which is very possible! Tough first game, but you'd back him to proceed to getting hammered by Gurney if he does win that game
I'm actually going for a Chizzy v Cross final. I can picture it now. Chizzy battling Cross, both 105 average going down to a final leg decider. Chizzy finishing on D18 for a 10-dart leg to become World Champion, dispatching the World Number One and Two on the way.
You wish

Cross winning, yes. Ando cant get anywhere near. MvG would have to lose very early doors for that to happen as well, I think (PDC website hasnt updated since the 18th so unsure how much MvG lost this weekend)
Unless Gando reaches the semis, he's likely to slip behind Gurney, which is interesting given how their years had gone prior to last weekend
That's for not playing European Tours....

Cross was 14/1 before the 2018 World Championship. There can't be too many times when a defending World Champion has dropped to such longer odds the next year.

I agree to an extent, but both have no chance whatsoever and should be 80s at the very least.
