While the European Football championships are on, the PDC Professionals are also playing in Europe, with Dean taking his place in the line up in Berlin, Germany.
Dean has started well in these European events, qualifying for the first 3 of the year, each having a top prize of £15,000 available, and £1,000 for a single win!
Round 1: Dean Winstanley 6-5 Mark Walsh
A first round win Friday afternoon against a real mainstay of the PDC Tour, the hugely experienced Mark Walsh. Dean averaged just over a 97 3 dart average in this game, and came back from 5-2 down to win 6-5!
Round 2: Dean Winstanley 5-6 Michael Mansell
£1,000 won from the weekend, which will go into the rankings pot and hopefully get Dean closer to qualifying for the World Matchplay in July, with the cut-off approaching fast.
