Any idea about Fatpot 2013 or Ando 2017?

Suspect they might both have been longer than the previous year.

Lewis 10s from 8s the previous year, Gando 6s from 7s. Extremely tedious, and nothing on the reigning champ being 50/1.

Although it's one where they won't have to wait for Barry to descend with his helicopter, so there's a chance it might actually happen at the advertised time.

At least Peter Wright isn't left on his own in the post-Christmas R3 like he has been in R2 a few times recently.

Evans-RJR and Ratajski-Asada being weekday afternoon games are disappointing.

Also of note is that R1 will have no tie-breaker, so it'll be a maximum of 25 legs.

Really only that very first afternoon session on the Friday that has little or nothing of any interest

Another one whining about de Zwaan/Kumar having to play two games in one night and thinking the prelim round was still first to 4 legs... which it hasn't been since 2015's edition.

Nicholson may have to play 2 games in one day: one in the afternoon and one at night.

Oh the humanity!!!!

Some moron had a similar response to the PDC Twitter account back when the Worlds expansion was announced, something like how it's unheard of that there will be players who are already into Round 3 while others haven't played Round 1 yet. Apparently he didn't realize that they've had that situation ever since they added a prelim round...
