DUBLIN WEEKEND 1ST-2ND OCT
I travelled over to Ireland on Friday for two Pro Tour events with 99 players on the Saturday & 98 entries on the Sunday.
The tournaments were held in The New City West Convention Centre, and on the Saturday I had a bye in the first round.
I beat David Coyne in the second round 6-1, Colin Lloyd in the third 6-5 and then lost to Scott Rand 6-3 in the last 16.
Phil Taylor won the tournament 6-3 against Michael Van Gerwen.
I made to the Quarter Finals on the Sunday.
Again had a bye in the first round, I beat Adam Smith-Neale 6-1 in the second, Ian White 6-2 in the third, Shaun Griffiths 6-3 in the fourth.
I lost in the Quarter Finals 6-4 to Justin Pipe. Justin went on to win the tournament 6-5 against Phil Taylor.
It was Justin’s first Pro win, well done Justin, you’re a great bloke, enjoy your win.
Good Luck to everyone for The Grand Prix, I will see you all in it next year.
