Daryl Gurney returns to the World Grand Prix to defend his title, live on Sky Sports from Sunday.
What happened last year?
Northern Ireland's Gurney claimed his first major prize in Dublin, ousting Simon Whitlock in the final.
It was a tournament of shocks - top seed Michael van Gerwen lost his very first match to John Henderson. Mensur Suljovic (No 6) was the only seeded player in the semi-finals.
Are the big guns playing?
