Its certainly been an eventful tournament this year, with pre tournament favourite and part of the furniture on Finals day, Phil Taylor knocked out in the early rounds.
The Stoke’s man defeat in Round Two certainly opened up the tournament, with emerging contender to the Taylor thrown, Michael Van Gerwen firing his way to reach his second consecutive final.
The Dutchman has emerged as a very real contender to dominate the world of darts in the years to come, especially as he saw of another young hotshot, two time winner Adrian Lewis in the semi finals in what was a very one sided affair.
Despite scoring heavily, ‘Jackpot’ found his doubles hard going and was thrashed on the night 6-0, with Van Gerwen firing in an average of 103.2 and landing 58% of his doubles.
Predicably, last years runner up is 2/9 across the board to pick up the PDC World title, and there’s no doubt surprise package Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright will have plenty of work to do to justify winning at odd of 7/2.
That said, Wright has already knocked out Wes Newton & Simon Whitlock in the semi final, in what turned out to be a comfortable victory.
The Scotsman won that match 6-2, with an average of 100.24 on his way to victory, and there’s no doubt that he will have to improve on that statistic to overhaul Van Gerwen tonight.
That said, the Scot is playing some very consistent darts and could push his more illustrious opponent all the way.
Certainly, all the pressure will be on the Dutchman Van Gerwen to emerge with the PDC crown and it appears that the Scot Wright is comfortable being the long odds outsider.
It should be an intriguing final to the 2013 PDC World Championship darts at Alexandra Palace London, with the arrows set to begin at 20:30.
