Get the TV on ITV4 this Friday/Weekend, as it’s the Player Championship finals in Minehead, and Dean is looking forward to getting up on a big stage again, in the last big tournament before the World Championships.
The £300,000 tournament features the top 32 players from the 2014 PDC ProTour Order of Merit, based on prize money won in Players Championships, UK Open Qualifiers and European Tour events this year.
The first round sees eight matches in the afternoon session and eight games in the evening session, all live on ITV4.
Cash Converters Players Championship Finals
Round 1: Dean Winstanley 6-3 Simon Whitlock
Round 2: Dean Winstanley 10-5 Jelle Klaasen
1/4 Finals: Dean Winstanley 8-10 Vincent van der Voort
In a very tight game, Dean’s 9x 180’s were not quite enough, as the game got nervy the doubles dried up, and Dean just missed out on a semi final. Still a lot of build confidence from just before the worlds.
