Phil Taylor will play Stoke rival Andy Hamilton in the first round of the Dubai Duty Free Darts Masters on Thursday, with the draw for the $250,000 throwing up four tasty Quarter-Finals.
The inaugural tournament will be held at the Dubai Tennis Centre on a specially-built outdoor stage, as players compete over two days for the $50,000 first prize.
World Champion Taylor, the world number one, has drawn Stoke’s Andy Hamilton for Thursday’s Quarter-Finals, in a repeat of the 2008 Grand Slam of Darts final between the pair.
Hamilton’s victory over Taylor in the McCoy’s Premier League Darts earlier this year gives added spice to the contest, while Taylor is looking to bounce back from his defeat in the Premier League’s final last Thursday.
