A great day of darts yesterday, with a winning Free Darts Betting Tip to boot. It started off with a couple of 4-1 wins, with Andy Hamilton beating Richie Burnett, and then Dave Chisnall beating Daryl Gurney. But while Andy Hamilton's win over Richie Burnett was comfortable, Chisnall was pushed all the way by Gurney. Gurney fired in 11 maximums, and had an average of 96.42, so the 4-1 scoreline isn't a true reflection of the match. The 4-1 win for Hamilton is definitely a reflection of his match. And then Gary Anderson got pushed all the way, and then some, by John Bowles. The match finished 4-3 in favour of the Scotsman, and Bowles was definitely not disgraced in defeat. The evening session started with another 4-1 win, this time for Terry Jenkins over John Part. Jenkins averaged 98.18, and Part was never at the races. And then it was the fireworks - Robert Thornton beating Paul Nicholson in a deciding leg, after it went 5-5 in the final set. Thornton looked good, and averaged 94.79, taking out nice finishes of 136 and a couple of 130s. Then Phil Taylor came from 1-0 down to cruise past Jerry Hendriks. The Power only managed an average of just over 90, so he's still not firing on all cylinders.
We've got another double session of darts today, again starting just after 12:30, with Kevin Painter facing Ronnie Baxter. Then it's Mark Webster Vs Colin Lloyd, then Raymond van Barneveld wraps up the afternoon session against Brendan Dolan. The evening session starts with Wes Newton facing Scott Rand, followed by Simon Whitlock taking on Colin Osborne, and we finish off the day with Adrian Lewis facing Denis Ovens.
