THE PLAYERS

JIM WILLIAMS

  • Jim Williams had his best ever run in a BDO World Championship last year when he reached the semi-finals before losing to Glen Durrant.
  • Williams added a major title to his CV when he won the BDO World Trophy last September with a victory against Richard Veenstra in the final.

GARY STONE

  • Gary Stone is featuring at the BDO World Championship for the first time since he made back-to-back appearances in 2012 and 2013.
  • Stone's win at the Swedish Classic in 2019 ended a seven-year wait for a title since his last singles triumph at the 2012 WDF Europe Cup.

THE PREDICTION

Williams has seen his World Championship hopes end at the hands of Glen Durrant in each of the last two years but with Durrant no longer on the scene, the Welshman has a good chance of glory in 2020. Williams should begin his campaign smoothly enough by outscoring Stone in progressing to round two.
