It’s the weekend before the World Grand Prix, and Kevin has joined the other 127 elite pro tour players in Dublin to take part in the two ‘warm up’ Pro Tour events.
All those players taking part in the televised Grand Prix next week will be looking to fine tune their game in the weekend’s games, hopefully building some confidence or final testing of any changes to set-up or throw. Kevin always seems to play better on TV than ‘on the floor’ – the competitor in him prefers the roar of the crowd – but he’ll still be looking to play well this weekend.
