Pipe v Reed: Justin to Force out Reed

The international qualifiers are without doubt a big part of the world championships and what truly makes it a world contest, but it is generally the case that the first round is as good as it gets and then it’s back on the plane.

Unfortunately for Sean Reed he may well join the long list of foreign imports that don’t venture past the opening contest as he faces one of the most consistent performers on the PDC tour of late in Justin Pipe.

The Force was unfortunate to go out of the Players Championship Finals in a narrow defeat to Mark Webster, but the fact he was the top seed for the competition shows just how well he has been playing away from the television cameras. Three wins and two finals in little over two months in the Players Championships is some pretty convincing evidence to suggest he can beat anyone on his day.

Pipe is still reasonably inexperienced on the big stage, but he is a veteran compared to his opponent from Australia who is making his debut at the world championships and will almost certainly take some time to get going, especially against the famously measured throw of Pipe.

The best price you can get on a Pipe victory is 1/5, which is a little more generous than I was expecting, but obviously still doesn’t represent great value for money. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the Englishman whitewashed the Aussie though on Friday night and you can get the 3-0 at 13/8 with Stan James.
