HOLLAND WEEKEND 24/25th SEPTEMBER 2011 by Steve Beaton

I’m gutted.

I didn’t qualify for The World Grand Prix in Dublin, Ireland next month.

I travelled to The Van der Valk Hotel, in Nuland, Holland on Friday for two Player Championships hoping to qualify, but it wasn’t to be.

On the Saturday I played Mark Lieflink in the first round beating him 6-2, second Mark Frost 6-5 in a close fought game and then lost in the third to a very inform Ritchie Burnett 6-5 in another close game.

Gary Anderson won the tournament beating Colin Lloyd  6-2 in the final.

On the Sunday I made it to the last 16.

In my first I beat Danny Schellekens 6-3, second round Andy Jenkins 6-5, third Colin Osborne 6-1.  Colin was also looking to qualify for The Grand Prix.

I then lost to Michael Smith 6-4 in the last 16.

Ritchie Burnett went on to win the tournament 6-4 against Dave Chisnall.

It was Ritchie’s first ranking title for more than a decade and secured him a spot in The World Grand Prix.

Well done Ritchie mate.

Cheers Steve
