PREMIER LEAGUE WEEK 13 IN BIRMINGHAM
By John Lowe, Apr 29 2016 07:15AM
The number 13 is classed the unlucky number by the majority, so much so that in the USA many buildings do not have a 13th floor listed in the elevator, but for many myself included number 13 is quite the opposite , I threw the first ever perfect game of 501 in 9 darts on TV on the 13th October 1984, last night was week 13 in the Premier League, MVG did not need any luck in his match against James Wade winning 7-1, Wade played well but had no answer for MVG in this mood, he was almost at his best recording an average of 108. You could say the luck came in the Taylor v Wright match, which Wright won 7-4, the missed dart at tops in the 8th leg by Taylor was the turning point and at 6-3 to Wright the match was clearly in his favour, the loss kept Taylor level on points at the top of the table with MVG but behind on legs difference, it will be an interesting finish to the league format if it stays like this, never before has any player won £25,000 on leg difference. Wright went on to play Gary Anderson in his second match of the night and secured a draw to take his points haul for the night to 3, keeping his hopes of reaching the play off's well alive. Anderson beat Barney in his first match of the night 7-5, which made it impossible for for Barney to qualify for the O2 and the final stage. Adrian Lewis came out a clear winner against Robert Thornton 7-2 keeping his chances of reaching the final well and truly on.
I wonder if Taylor or Van Gerwen will think Lady Luck played a part in Birmingham last night, maybe they will look back at the end of the League play and reflect on that crucial night.
Peter Wright puts an end to Taylor winning ways.
