Jerry Hendriks feels like a fish in the Premier League VIP prediction league.

On week one, the Dutch ace picked up just a single point. But an incredible second week of predicting saw Hendriks accumulate ten points. He correctly guessed that Michael Smith would beat Daryl Gurney in the opening match in Cardiff. On top of that, he nailed Gary Anderson’s 7-3 defeat of Gerwyn Price. To round it off, Raymond van Barneveld beat Mensur Suljovic 7-5, just as he predicted. Hendriks also guessed that Simon Whitlock would beat Rob Cross. Only former World Championship foe Peter Wright’s win over Michael van Gerwen surprised him. Added to his one correct winner prediction last week, Hendriks has a total of 11 points.

He is followed by Vincent van der Voort and Keith Deller. The league leaders from last week could only muster two points each. Laure James had a worse time of it, getting every single result wrong. She was not alone, however. Chris Mason’s tally of zero this week means he props up the league on a single point. Ron Meulenkamp is on the board at last, thanks to his prediction that van Barneveld would defeat Suljovic 7-5. All of that means that Hendriks has a commanding five-point going into Week Three in Newcastle.

The rules are very simple. Every week, our experts will predict the results of that week’s play. Choosing the right winner will yield one point, while predicting a correct scoreline earns them three.

There is no Judgement Night for our eight predictors, however. They will all play along until the play-offs at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday 17 May. Whoever has collected the most points after play concludes will be the first VIP prediction league champion.

The predictions for this week’s Premier League round will be announced on Wednesday.
