THE LOWDOWN

DANNY NOPPERT

  • Danny Noppert is competing at his first ever PDC World Championships having reached the final of the BDO World Championship last year.
  • In his first season on the PDC circuit, world number 47 Noppert qualified for six European Tour events, reaching two semi-finals to earn himself a European Championship debut.
  • Netherland’s Noppert played in the Players Championship Finals for the first time in November 2018, reaching the semi-finals where he lost to eventual champion Daryl Gurney.

ROYDEN LAM

  • Royden Lam is competing in the PDC World Championship for the first time since 2014, where he lost 3-1 to Wes Newton in the first round.
  • Hong Kong’s 43-year-old Lam has had a successful season on the Asian PDC circuit, as he has won the PDC Asian Tour Japan and the PDC Asian Tour South Korea in 2018.
  • World number 175 Lam is best known as a soft tip darts player and has also been representing Hong Kong internationally since 2014.

THE PREDICTION

Qualification from the first round will set up a clash against world number 32 Max Hopp which will be a huge incentive for both these players. Having reached the semi-finals of the Players Championship Finals just last month and the final of the BDO World Championship last year, Noppert should comfortably be able to advance through the first round at the first time of asking.
