Another day down in the 2013 UK Open, and we're still waiting on the real big shock of the tournament. Phil Taylor and Michael van Gerwen were never troubled yesterday, with Taylor whitewashing Ronny Huybrechts and Michael van Gerwen comfortably seeing off Mervyn King 9-5. Paul Nicholson, Steve Beaton and Joe Cullen were the shock exits, with wins for John Bowles, Joey Palfreyman and Lee Palfreyman. We did almost have a huge casualty with Raymond van Barneveld edging past Michael Smith 9-8, and Ronnie Baxter survived a scare against Ken MacNeil by the same scoreline. But all the big guns are through, except Simon Whitlock, who lost out to Wes Newton last night.
This afternoon sees the start of Round Four of the UK Open, and there are a few interesting matches scheduled, not least Dave Chisnall against James Wade. Gary Anderson against Kevin Painter is also one to get excited about on the Main Stage, while Terry Jenkins and Kim Huybrechts on Stage Two is the highlight on the board, which is then followed by John Part versus Andy Hamilton. The obvious highlight on Stage Three is Adrian Lewis against Wes Newton, but Jelle Klaasen against Stuart Kellett could be a close one. Stage Four might not have the glitz and glamour of the other three boards, but Stephen Bunting versus Peter Wright could be a high quality affair, and Steve West's match against Richie Burnett is a good way to end the afternoon session.
