We will finally see the 2019/2020 PDC World Darts Championship kick off this Friday (13th December).
The special occasion is in no way connected to anything curse-inducing or scary. Much rather pumping and exciting news to finally see some of the best Darts players in the world perform in front of a large crowd as well as have their skill broadcasted almost all over the world.
Naturally, the big man of the occasion is going to be Michael van Gerwen who will be protecting his title the moment the championship starts. It’s going to be quite the right challenge for Gerwen as there are a lot of well-prepared professionals eager to snatch the title away from this man.
Chief among them is, of course, the man the myth the legend Keegan Brown from the Isle of Wight.
Brown seems to be in good shape as well as enthusiastic about his performance in this year’s championships, promising to bring the trophy back as well as the title to compete for during the next championship.
Looking at the Englishman’s record, such as the 2014 victory in the PDC Youth World Championship indicates that opponents should indeed be wary of this young professional.
Brown and van Gerwen will not be the only people to pay attention to during the first week of the games as well.
The championship will be kicked off by Jelle Klaasen against Kevin Burness. Both of these players have years of experience under their belt, which means a seriously complex competition for the two of them, while an enjoyable view for the rest of us spectators.
As for the following days of the championship, it’s easy to say that the organizers decided to display only the most popular and exciting of professionals against each other. On Saturday, December 14th we can expect Rob Cross (the former world champion) to go against either Hyubrechts or Nentjes.
Many would think this the culmination of the day but oh no, the organizers have even more surprises. Right after the first match, we will get to see the legendary five-time champion Raymond van Barneveld perform in his last PDC event before retiring to enjoy the spoils of his career.
And those are not the only amazing matches to look forward to. The roster for the weekend is teeming with talent, and both the spectators and the sportsbooks are absolutely loving it.
In fact, two specific Australian players have been crowned as the sportsbook favorites this year as Keegan and Damon Heta are being compared to each other in terms of odds. It’s going to be a very hard decision for this year’s punters to place bets on their favorite players considering how many hard-hitters will be appearing in the championship.
