What a day of darts we had yesterday. There were shocks, outstanding performances and the obligatory Phil Taylor win. Tonight, we've only got the 8 matches, which is a shame. But we've got a couple off mouthwatering clashes, not least the all-Dutch encounter between Raymond van Barneveld and Christian Kist. These two superstars of Dutch darts have never faced off on the oche, and it's a case of youth versus experience, which is the most intriguing game of the night. We also have Gary Anderson taking on Tony O'Shea in another match I can't wait for. And then there's Wes Newton taking on Wesley Harms in what could be another cracker. It's fair to saw the end of the night is a bit more stacked than the start, but we still have the likes of John Part, Adrian Lewis, Andy Hamilton and Brendan Dolan, and we start with Mark Walsh taking on Wayne Jones.
Sunday's results were interesting, with Tony O'Shea taking the scalp of Adrian Lewis, Ted Hankey showed he is actually capable of hitting the doubles, as is Dean Winstanley, and Christian Kist exploded onto Sky Sports was a phenomenal destruction of Wayne Jones with a 97.21 average. It was great for the game to have Kist put in that kind of performance, which came on the back of Wesley Harms putting in a 101.79 average in his 5-2 over Terry Jenkins. It was a great day for the BDO, and I don't think anyone, not even the biggest PDC fan, would begrudge them their wins.
