It seems as though his motivation may have dipped somewhat after achieving a victory at Alexandra Palace in January. This year, there appears to be a sense among competitors of a stronger desire and hunger to win.

Luke Humphries, after a phenomenal season with victories at the World Grand Prix, Grand Slam, and Players Championships, clinch his first World Championship? Michael Van Gerwen is also a strong contender, eyeing his fourth title.

Other notable players include Gerwyn Price, who faces the challenge of both his opponents and the crowd. There’s also Gary Anderson, a formidable player in floor events in 2023, whose victory would be a sight to behold.

Nathan Aspinall, the World Matchplay winner, is known for his prowess in major events, despite a less stellar second half of the season. Stephen Bunting and Rob Cross, both brimming with confidence and peaking at the right time, are also in the mix.

Notably, Cross has previously triumphed on this grand stage.
