The BDO world rankings have been updated, and it has led to unrest in some quarters.

Rankings in the men’s and women’s game have been affected this week by BDO World Trophy points coming off. Among those impacted is Jim Williams, who drops to third in the men’s rolling table. Richard Veenstra sits top, with Wesley Harms narrowly behind him. Lisa Ashton, meanwhile, extends her lead atop the women’s rankings.
World Trophy points aren’t the only ones to come off. The Bruges Open moving to September means that points earners from the May 2018 edition now see those points coming off.
Welsh ace Williams was clearly unhappy with the news. He took to Facebook to voice his displeasure, suggesting a slight against him by the BDO.
“So my prize for being top of the rankings has come through,” he opened, sarcastically.
“World Trophy points taken off without being able to defend them!”
Williams went on to say: “That’s 129 (ranking) points and not a thing I can do about it. Really gonna struggle to make grand slam once my ‘because your name starts with a J’ points come off!!!”
