Last night's darting action was magnificent in terms of drama. We started off with a bit of a stinker, the qualifying match wasn't much better, but then we had high drama in the form of Kim Huybrechts and Scott Rand, then Stuart Kellett and Vincent van der Voot put on a masterclass of "how not to double" before Michael van Gerwen was given a stiff test by Mr Paul Lim. Lim hitting a 170 checkout in the match, and MVG averaging just over 90, to the surprise of many.
We have a double session today, starting nice and early just after 12:30pm, and it's the first day of second round action, with Andy Hamilton opening up the second round against Richie Burnett. Then it's a battle of the old BDO boys, with Dave Chisnall taking on the qualifier from Northern Ireland, Daryl Gurney. Gary Anderson closes out the first session against another qualifier, John Bowles. The evening session kicks off just after 7pm, and we have Terry Jenkins taking on John Part, then Paul Nicholson faces Robert Thornton, and we end the day with Phil "The Power" Taylor taking on Jerry Hendriks. Some exciting matches there, some that don't inspire me as much, but I think we're going to see some great action.
