Who's not a bogey man for him at this point?

Don't really see the point in the associate qualifiers, and I'm sure this won't do anything to persuade the PDC to keep i

Huge chokejob from Gabriel Rollo against Portela, got it back to 5-5, yet didn't even land a single treble in 5 visits to lose the leg against the throw

That bottom section of the draw is open, big opportunity for Ross Smith to help secure his position in the Matchplay or Reyes to kick-start his season. Winner of Hughes-Durrant (probably Hughes lol) could go far as well

Lewis or Cullen having a big run would be very welcome in the bottom half. Though I have zero trust in both. Norris v Bunting a repeat of the 2014 Lakeshite final.

You'd think if they get past Edhouse/Dolan/Hughes/Durrant that they could go on a run, but I have no confidence they'll even get that far. Tidy little draw for Bunting just when he needed one, should definitely beat Norris, and Noppert as seeds go is very winnable

Nice for Noppie to be a seed for once. Price withdrew (probably preparing for his DRA showdown).
2x 2019 Q-School Lucky Dip winner! About as valuable as the Lakeshite piss pot!

Münch is the first Home Nation qualifier, now he could chuck something good, or something absolutely horrid, but after the shit the Germans have thrown up so far this season, that's a chance I'm willing to take

He gets £2k regardless, doesn't he? With a decent chance to make it £3k, I'm sure he's happy enough with that

Rasztovits comes through a surprisingly tough match with Van de Wal to qualify. I suspect we'll be seeing a fair bit of him this season if entries remain this low

Dear me, the associate qualifier is actually worse than the German one. What's the fucking point seriously, hard to find a single player you would care about. While the European card holders are getting 6 places only. Madness.

Normally I'd be happy to see Artut back, but his best average in his 4 matches was 80.4

Hope to fuck Portela wins, him and Rasztovits are at least acceptable at this level. Guy he's playing against now averaged below 70 to win his semi, I dare say Diogo is in much trouble.

I know it's Easter, long weekend and what not, but still, this Associates qualifiers has not had the intended impact so far this season, they really should think about scrapping it

Agreed, K would much rather the ET tour card holders play down to last 8.
These associate qualifiers look dire. Hopefully that will change next year
