World Number One Michael van Gerwen has so far won five of his six games and is currently sitting pretty at the top of the table. However, he is only ahead of his old adversary Phil Taylor due to winning more legs. Taylor has not been at his best in recent years, but so far he has impressed and looks like the one player capable of knocking van Gerwen off top spot.

Adrian Lewis and James Wade are also challenging at the right end of the table. Both currently have eight points, just two points off the top, although Wade has played seven games, one more than the three players above him.

Peter Wright is in touch with the top four with six points. He is one point clear of World Champion Garry Anderson, although the Scotsman has only plated five games so far. Anderson got off to a slow start, but after returning to winning ways, will have his eyes on a top four spot.

Despite a poor start to the competition, Raymond van Barneveld will still be hopeful that he can qualify for the knock out stages. The Dutchman has won just two games so far in the competition, but he remains in contact with the leading pack and will be confident of putting a run together to put himself back in contention.

Dave Chisnall is currently in eighth place and has just one win to his name all competition. He is joined on three points by Michael Smith, who is making his debut in the competition this year. Robert Thornton currently sits bottom of the table without a win to his name, but has two games in hand on Smith.

The competition continues this week.
