Grand Slam of Darts Betting 2010
The Grand Slam of Darts 2010 will be the fourth annual staging of the event, and it will be played at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall. The event is organised by the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) who also invite the best players from the rival British Darts Organisation (BDO) in an attempt to find the best darts player on the planet.
There will be no surprises in learning that Phil Taylor has won the event on each of the three previous occasions that it has been contested. In last year’s event Scott Waites became the first BDO player to reach the final of the event, although he was duly dispatched by Taylor who beat him 16-2.
Taylor is, of course, the Grand Slam of Darts Betting 2010 favourite as he continues on his crusade to simultaneously hold all of darts’ major championship titles. Such is The Power’s dominance in the game that there is also the customary ‘without Taylor’ Grand Slam of Darts Betting 2010 market.
