We think it is fair to say that the 3rd European Tour event was; “one of those weekends“. With all three MDA professionals making the journey to Germany, hopes where high, but as it turned out, all three players had a tough time, losing in the first round.
Stuart Kellett 3-6 Mervyn King
Justin Pipe 3-6 Gino Vos
Dean Winstanley 6-5 Brendan Dolan
But in much better news, both Justin Pipe and Dean Winstanley have qualified for the Betfair World Matchplay in Blackpool later this month, and the draw is now known for the prestigious ‘big money’ tournament (£400,000 in prize money, and £5,000 won for their qualification into the last 32 TV stages).
The tournament starts on Saturday 21st, and you can watch both play live on Sky Sports on Tuesday 24th July:
7.10pm Justin Pipe v Joe Cullen
8.00pm Wes Newton v James Hubbard
9.00pm Gary Anderson v Dean Winstanley
10.00pm Dave Chisnall v Ronnie Baxter
