The 12th staging of the Grand Slam of Darts gets under way this weekend, as Gerwyn Price bids to defend the title he so controversially won in a heated final with Gary Anderson 12 months ago.

A field of 32 players, featuring eight representatives from the BDO, are split into eight groups of four players for the round-robin phase, with the top two players from each group then progressing to the knockout stage.

This year we’ll also see two female stars from the BDO – world champion Mikuru Suzuki and Lakeside legend Lisa Ashton – battle it out with the men for the right to lift the Eric Bristow Trophy.

Here, you can follow the event unfold with the group standings, daily schedule, results, round ups, details of how the players qualified and a look back at previous winners.

Scoring System: Each competitor plays each other once in a best-of-nine legs match, with two points going to the winner. The top two from each group will then progress to the knockout stages. Any two-way points tie in any position, the player with best leg difference will finish higher. If two players are still level then the winner of the match between them will progress. There is the potential for a Nine-Dart Shoot-Out should three or more players be tied for points and leg difference. For more details see the format section further down.

The Dutchman has won the World Grand Prix, Champions League of Darts and World Series of Darts Finals in recent weeks, and will travel to Wolverhampton in confident mood as he targets a fourth title here.

Recently-crowned European champion Rob Cross is next in the running at 8/1 while Peter Wright is 9/1 ahead of defending champion Gerweyn Price at 11/1.

Grand Slam of Darts: Tournament format
Group Stage (Potentially complicated!!)

The 32 players are drawn into eight groups of four players during the round-robin stage, and they will play each other once. The opening games are decided by a draw, with the second set of matches seeing the two winners from the first games meeting each other, and the two losers also playing each other. The third set of matches will consist of the pairings which have not previously met.

Two points are awarded for a win and no points will be awarded for a loss. Each game is the best of nine legs.

The top two players in each group will progress to the knockout phase. Should there be a two-way points tie for first place in any group, then the player with the best leg difference will be deemed to have won the group. If both players have the same leg difference, then the player who won the group match between the two players will be deemed to have won the group.

Should Points, Leg Difference, Tournament Average and Legs Won Against Throw not be able to separate three players, then if one player has defeated both of the other two players then this player will be deemed to have finished higher, and the winner of the group match between the remaining two players will be the ‘second’ of the three. Should the three players have secured one win apiece against each other, then a Nine-Dart Shoot-Out will be played between the relevant players to determine final standings, with the highest aggregate score over nine darts being used to separate players.

In the event a “Nine-Dart Shoot-Out” finishes level between two or more players, those players who have tied on the most points will continue to throw three darts each in the same order until one player scores more points than the other player(s) with his three darts.

From the second round onwards, the tournament will be in a knockout format.

Knockout stage (far more simple!)

From the second round onwards, the tournament will be in a knockout format. There will be no tie-break rule employed in any match.
