Painter on the ProTour; Player Champs 3&4

Painter on the ProTour; Player Champs 3&4

The busy time on PDC pro tour continues, with Kevin yet again playing two Player championship events in Wigan.

The top 8 players in the world will miss the event (Although Wes Newton may make Sunday), due to them being away in Dubai, so the rest of the elite players, The Artist included, will hope to take advantage and have a long run, hopefully bagging the £10,000 top prize each day!

A great first day run, beating some good players, losing out to a bang on form Jabba, who went on to win the entire event.   £1,500 put on the rankings today, and another day to go!
