Klaasen not seeded for Lakeside

Jelle Klaasen celebrates his shock title win at Lakeside
The Lakeside World Championship will use 16 seedings next year for the first time since 1981 - but champion Jelle Klaasen is not among them.

The list, doubled in length since 2006, also excludes ex-winner Andy Fordham.

England's Martin Adams is top of the list, which is taken from the British Darts Organisation's rankings.

"We are making the change to keep the top-ranked players apart in round one. It increases competition for the unseeded players," the BDO said.


Top 16 seeds: 1 Martin Adams (Eng) 2 Gary Anderson (Sco) 3 Michael Van Gerwen (Ned) 4 Tony Eccles (Eng) 5 Mervyn King (Eng) 6 Simon Whitlock (Aus) 7 Darryl Fitton (Eng) 8 Ted Hankey (Eng) 9 Vincent van der Voort (Ned) 10 Martin Atkins (Eng) 11 Niels de Ruiter (Ned) 12 Mike Veitch (Sco) 13 Shaun Greatbatch (Eng) 14 John Walton (Eng) 15 Paul Hanvidge (Sco) 16 Co Stompe (Ned)
