Xmas is Coming, and So is The Artist at the World Championships!
Kevin Painter heads to the capital soon, ready to take part in the world’s premier darts event. The World Championship’s first round is split across eight sessions in the opening seven days, with one preliminary round contest accompanied by four games from the first round.
The Ladbrokes World Darts Championship will be held from December 13 2013-January 1 2014 at Alexandra Palace in London, featuring 72 players from around the world and a record first prize of £250,000 from over £1 million in prize money. Coverage is live on Sky Sports HD throughout the event, with the semi-finals and final being shown in 3D.
Kevin joins the action on Thursday 19th Dec, taking on the German Tomas Seyler in round 1 on that huge world famous Ally Pally stage at the end of the evening. Kev has played Thomas twice before (back in 2008), and won on both occasions, but you know he won’t be taking the game lightly, and is spending his time now hard in practice.
“I’ve got a later start than the rest of the lads that night, so I’ll be using the time I have wisely to get get extra practice in. I won’t be watching the other games, all my focus will be on preparing for my game.” – Kevin speaking earlier today after checking out the schedule for his 1st round match.
