Another big European tour event this weekend, which Kevin qualifier for in his return to form in 2016. Kevin goes into the tournament full of confidence, and these big stage and big crowd events really suit his game.
Round 1: Kevin Painter 6-1 Stuart Kellett
Arguably the performance of the day came from former Players Championship Finals winner Kevin Painter, who posted a 101.7 average in a 6-1 victory over Stuart Kellett, despite the Northwich ace agonizingly wiring double 12 for a nine-dart finish earlier on in the contest.
Round 2: Kevin Painter 6-5 Justin Pipe (16)
Kevin knocks out his friend and 16th Seed Justin Pipe in round 2, pushing Kev’s run into the final day, and his winnings up!
Round 3: Kevin Painter 2-6 Michael van Gerwen
