The 2013 Ladbrokes World Darts Championship was the 20th World Championship organised by the Professional Darts Corporation since it separated from the British Darts Organisation.

The event started on 14 December 2012 and concluded on 1 January 2013. It was held at the Alexandra Palace, London, England.[1]

Adrian Lewis was the defending champion having won the last two editions of the tournament, but was beaten by Michael van Gerwen in the quarter-finals, thus ending Lewis' 15 match unbeaten run at the World Championship.

Phil Taylor won his 16th World Championship title with a 7–4 victory over van Gerwen in the final, despite trailing 0–2 and then 2–4 after six sets. Taylor then won five sets in a row for the win. van Gerwen averaged between 105 and 108 in the early sets but as his average dropped, Taylor's rose as did his ascendancy over a rival he admitted in the post-match interview was 'hard to crack'.[2]

Format and qualifiers[edit]

The televised stages featured 72 players. The top 32 players in the PDC Order of Merit on 26 November 2012 were seeded for the tournament.[3] They were joined by the 16 highest non-qualified players from the Pro Tour Order of Merit, based on the 33 events played on the PDC Pro Tour.

These 48 players were joined by two PDPA qualifiers (as determined at a PDPA Qualifying event held in Barnsley on 26 November 2012), the highest ranked non-qualified player on the PDC Youth Tour Order of Merit, and 21 international players: the four highest names in the European Order of Merit not already qualified, and 17 further international qualifiers to be determined by the PDC and PDPA.[3]

Some of the international players, such as the four from the European Order of Merit, and the top American and Australian players were entered straight into the first round, while others, having won qualifying events in their countries, were entered into the preliminary round.
