After the impressive display the Dutch put in on their run to the semi-final of the World Cup last week, it seems like the perfect time for this darts roadshow to head to the Netherlands as eight Dutch qualifiers take on eight PDC representatives.
Jonny Clayton is joint favourite with Michael Smith to go all the way this weekend at 4/1 and despite his recent wrist surgery, Michael van Gerwen is 9/2 to lift (wrist strength depending) the trophy.
Of the eight qualifiers, Dirk van Duijvenbode has the shortest odds at 16/1, while Danny Noppert is 19/1.
11 days on from winning the Premier League title for a sixth time and 10 days since undergoing wrist surgery, Michael van Gerwen has announced that he will be returning to action in Amsterdam this weekend.
Of course he'll want to appear in front of a home crowd and maybe he just wants to test how far off match ready he actually is but for the first time, I think we can be certain that winning the tournament won't be at the forefront of Mighty Mike's mind.
I think he's probably using this event to see what he's capable of at the moment because even he has admitted that he's only been able to do light practice this week. He takes on a Dutchman in superb form, Danny Noppert, in the opening round, a player who has come out on top three of the last five times these two have met.
Noppy has always been a dangerous player, quite often we've seen him average around a ton and get the better of the likes of Ryan Searle, MvG and Jonny Clayton but this year, everything seems to have clicked for him. He's performing more consistently, he's stronger mentally and now we're starting to expect to see him at the business end of tournaments.
Since winning the UK Open in March, he has gone on to reach the final of two Euro Tour events and put a number of decent runs together in floor tournaments.
I'm backing the world number 11 to come through the fixture at 11/8 and also think there is value in backing him to hit the most 180s at 1/1.
Double tournament weekend beckons for Sherrock
Fallon Sherrock is set to miss the first day of the Women's Series events in Barnsley this weekend in order to compete in the Dutch Darts Masters which could cause The Queen of the Palace a few issues.
With only the top two players in the Women's Series Order of Merit set to qualify for the World Championship at the Alexandra Palace in December, and with her due to miss a further four events in August due to the World Series events Down Under, she may feel a little bit of pressure on her shoulders this weekend.
Sherrock has a very real chance of winning her first round match in Amsterdam, too. She will take on Maik Kuivenhoven for the first time and given the strength in depth that Dutch darts possesses, this is one of the more favourable draws.
Kuivenhoven is currently 52nd in the PDC Order of Merit and whilst he hasn't done anything spectacular on tour in 2022, he did have a decent run to the quarter-final of Players Championship 14 in May, beating Joe Cullen and Willie O'Connor along the way.
Sherrock hasn't produced anywhere near her best on the World Series stage yet but with a win over Darius Labanauskas and improved scoring in defeat to Michael Smith in Copenhagen, there are signs of her warming up to the challenge.
You can back Sherrock to win her opening match at 9/5.
