The Grand Slam of Darts is the sport's premier cross-code tournament, featuring the leading players from both the Professional Darts Corporation and the British Darts Organisation.
The Sky-televised event has been staged at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall since 2007 and contains a unique format of both round-robin and knock-out phases.
The 32-man field (24 players from the PDC, eight from the BDO) are split into eight groups, with the winner and runner-up of each advancing to the knock-out stages.
Phil Taylor has won the title on six occasions, while Scott Waites famously battled back from 8-0 down to defeat James Wade in the 2010 final.
Raymond van Barneveld ended his major title drought with victory over Dutch compatriot Michael van Gerwen in 2012, but MVG went one better in 2015 to complete a clean sweep of PDC majors.
In the 2013 Semi-Finals, Taylor and Adrian Lewis contested what is widely regarded as the greatest match of all time, with 'The Power' prevailing 16-9 but both players averaging in excess of 109.
