There has been a significant change at the top of the PDC Nordic & Baltic rankings.

Two more Nordic & Baltic Pro Tour events were played at the weekend in Vilnius, Lithuania. Both Pro Tour Event 3 and 4 were won by the same man, Darius Labanauskas. As a result, he picks up the maximum of 2,400 ranking points. Now with a total of 3,050, he is well clear at the top of the rankings.

In second place is Pro Tour Event 2 champion Daniel Larsson. The Swede finished runner-up in the fourth event, and has 2125 points. Behind him on 1650 points is Event 1 winner Kim Viljanen. No player has surpassed 1000 points without winning a tournament. Ulf Ceder struggled for form in the two events, but remains in fourth. Following him are Madars Razma, Marko Kantele and Johan Engstrom. Cor Dekker rises to eighth, thanks to his run to the final of Pro Tour Event 3.

The top two in the rankings after 10 events will qualify for the 2019 PDC World Championship. The Finnish pair of Viljanen and Kantele claimed the two spots last year.
