Tough Weekend in Reading for Dean – but Form is Good

Reading Pro Tour weekend saw Dean throw some great darts, and miss d12 for a 9 Darter, but still come away with less than his form deserved!

Saturday saw Dean take on two big names, one in Klaasen a former Lakeside winner, and the other the former Lakeside finalist and PDC ranked five Simon Whitlock – so hardly an easy draw!  Sunday hardly saw things improve, with a draw against ‘the man’ Raymond van Barneveld.   Dean really should have won that game, and was winning throughout, the wire away from a 9 darter coming in the game.  Doubles where the key, and Barney came back from behind to take the game 6-5.

Dean knows that his form is good, and scoring is right up there – so confidence is still high for the next event in Barnsley in two weeks time.  Onwards and upwards!


Round 1: Dean Winstanley 6-4 Jelle Klaasen

Round 1:  Raymond van Barneveld (23) 6-5 Dean Winstanley
