The race for the World Matchplay continues with Raymond van Barneveld moving towards the qualification after his final appearance.

He sits currently in 36th place in the Pro Tour rankings and 29th in the Order of Merit. A couple of runs similar to the one Van Barneveld had at the weekend, he may still qualify for the tournament.
There is a battle further up in the Order of Merit with Mervyn King, Gabriel Clemens, Vincent van der Voort, Ron Meulenkamp and Ross Smith. They are only £500 away from each other for the provisional final spot.
This means there is going to be a tense battle for the final spots in the coming months.
