Last day of darts before the Christmas break, and we get the conclusion of the second round, as well as the start of the third round. The day started off with a classic, with Kevin Painter edging past Ronnie Baxter, in a match that Baxter really should have won. Then Colin Lloyd got past Mark Webster, whose form from the first round didn't carry over. The final match of the afternoon saw Raymond van Barneveld get a comfortable 4-1 over Brendan Dolan. The evening session was far less inspiring on paper, and it proved to the case with 4-0 wins for Simon Whitlock and Wes Newton over Colin Osborne and Scott Rand. Then Adrian Lewis got past Denis Ovens 4-1.
Today looks like it's going to start slowly and build up to the fireworks. We have Justin Pipe taking on Mark Walsh in a match that surely will be scrappy. Then it's James Wade taking on Steve Beaton, and then Dean Winstanley takes on Vincent van der Voort to round out the afternoon session. And then it's Michael van Gerwen opening the evening session against Peter Wright. And then the third round starts with a bang, as Andy Hamilton takes on Terry Jenkins. Finally, there could be fireworks as Robert Thornton takes on Phil Taylor. It's definitely a slow-burner, but it could be a real cracker by the time the final dart is thrown.
