At the time of writing, an eight-player invite TV darts tournament is ongoing – the Paddy Power sponsored ‘Champions League of Darts’ – and no player is impressing around the doubles more than Mensur ‘the Gentle One’ Suljovic.
Most definitely a player on an upward curve, the Austrian’s standout 25/1 quote by Sportingbet for the World Grand Prix, which starts in Dublin on Sunday, has to be snapped-up.
Firstly he looks tailor-made for this competition’s unique ‘double-in’ format. And secondly, this is a competition where the favourites often fail. Daryl Gurney was a surprise winner 12 months ago and you could not have found the 2015 winner, Robert Thornton, with a search warrant.
