- Wade is Huge Threat to Traditional Dominance of Taylor and Barneveld
GIBRALTAR, Nov. 15 /CNW/ - PartyBets.com is pleased to release odds for
the inaugural PartyBets.com Grand Slam of Darts, which takes place at
Wolverhampton Civic in the UK from 17th-25th November 2007. With a GBP300,000
prize pool, the PartyBets.com Grand Slam of Darts features 32 champions of the
sport from the PDC and BDO/WDF. Live coverage of the tournament will be
screened on both ITV1 and ITV4 in the UK with nightly highlights. This is the
first time live darts has been broadcast on ITV for eight years. The event
will also be broadcast to audiences on television stations all over the world.
The sponsors make Phil Taylor the 3/1 favourite to win, narrowly followed
by Holland's Raymond van Barneveld at 7/2 and will be offering betting
promotions throughout the tournament. For more see http://www.partybets.com.
A spokesman for PartyBets.com said, "In recent years bookmakers have had
no choice but to make Phil Taylor an odds-on favourite for tournaments but the
recent emergence of James Wade as a major force in the sport and the
consistent success of Raymond van Barneveld mean the PartyBets.com Grand Slam
of Darts is wide open. All the early money has been for Wade but that is not
surprising considering he won two major titles in less than three months."
