A dramatic opening day at the Tempodrom in Berlin saw big guns Adrian Lewis, James Wade and Andy Hamilton all suffer shock first round exits, with the short format putting the seeded players out of their comfort zones.

Eight games in the afternoon are preceded by a further eight in the evening to finalise the last 16 line-up on the third and final day.

Kevin Painter takes on soup maker Dave Ladley and The Artist should be a safe bet to reach the latter stages at 2/9 given the contrast in big stage experience. 

PDC newcomer Dean Winstanley continues to impress in tour events and is 4/11 favourite to see off Irish international Michael Mansell to reach the third round.

Formidable tour players Wes Newton and Justin Pipe are both odds-on to beat Steve Brown and Andy Smith respectively, while Simon Whitlock is likely to be there or there abouts in challenging for the £15,000 title this weekend and is 3/10 to get past Brendan Dolan.

Friday's nine dart hero Colin Lloyd contests the tie of the round against another animated thrower in Paul Nicholson. Lloyd has shown signs of his true form over the past few months and could provide value at EVS against The Asset who has struggled with a shoulder problem of late.

The vastly experienced former Premier League stars Terry Jenkins and John Part open up the evening session in what should be a highly entertaining battle, but contrary to the odds, it could prove much closer than the bookmakers suggest.

There is nothing to choose between James Hubbard and the colourful Peter Wright with both on offer at 5/6. World Youth champion Hubbard stunned Adrian Lewis with a 6-4 win last night and has the momentum coming into the game, but does he have the consistency and composure to get through another tough test.

Phil Taylor is the overwhelming 1/33 favourite to ease past Hull's young star Reece Robinson, while Dave Chisnall is also well fancied to beat Michael Rosenauer but will be wary of the local hero after he knocked out Andy Hamilton in round one.

Raymond van Barneveld will also have the backing of the crowd when he takes on left-hander Alan Tabern and should progress at 2/9 providing he brings his positive mind set and unquestioned ability to the stage. 

An interesting all-Europe battle rounds off the second round as Austria's giant killer Mensur Suljovic takes on the Belgian Hurricane - Kim Huybrechts.

Huybrechts has established himself as one of the most dangerous upcoming talents and is justified as 4/9 favourite, however he is likely to receive a tough test by Suljovic after he dumped out James Wade 6-5 with a 102 average in the last round.

Action gets underway from 12pm GMT from the Tempodrom in Berlin, with all matches non-televised and played over the best of 11 legs.
