World Darts Championship: Second Round Action



Results: Kim Huybrechts 4-0 Max Hopp James Wade 4-1 Steve Beaton Jelle Klaasen 4-0 Brendan Dolan


That is all from me today folks. 1 pretty poor match followed by 2 decent ones. And 0 predictions right for me. Standard. Until next time, stay classy. Barney vs Lewis in the last 16 tonight. Huge. Enjoy everyone.

So the 3 favourites move on to Round Three from this afternoon session. Only 1 place in the last 16 is yet to be decided, Peter Wright and Jamie Lewis face off this evening for that spot. Wins today for Huybrechts, Wade and Klaasen. The big names are all moving on to set up an amazing final few days of this brilliant tournament

Set 4: Klaasen 3-2 Dolan Game, set and the match!! After 2 180s Klaasen musters 65 to leave 76. Dolan is clinging on and leaves 36 but Dolan nails T20 and D8 at the 2nd attempt. The 10th seed races in to round 3 with a whitewash victory. Jelle Klaasen 4-0 Brendan Dolan

And another!! 6 perfect darts. What timing

180 from Klaasen as he looks for that break of throw

Set 4: Klaasen 2-2 Dolan A much better leg from Klaasen who hits some big scores and nails D18 with his final dart for a 36 checkout. 1 leg away from the 3rd round.

Set 4: Klaasen 1-2 Dolan Another brilliant Dolan checkout. T20, bullseye, D16 for a terrific 142 finish.

Set 4: Klaasen 1-1 Dolan D10 to hold his throw for Klaasen. Sloppy leg from both men until Klaasen stormed in to finish.

None of the crowd are even watching the stage. Literally every head I can see is turned to face the stands. What a waste of a good ticket

Klaasen is in control of this match but doesn't look comfortable on the stage. Doing a lot of blowing on fingers and fiddling with his shirt.
