World Darts Championship



Tonight's schedule: Aleksandr Oreshkin 0 v 2 Kevin Munch (0-3, 1-3) (P) John Henderson 3 v 0 Marko Kantele (3-2, 3-0, 3-1) Raymond van Barneveld 3 v 0 Richard North (3-0, 3-1, 3-2) Adrian Lewis 1 v 3 Kevin Munch (3-1, 2-3, 0-3, 2-3)


Hendo's red face, redder than a Finn in a sauna, is getting redder here. Kantele is finding his range. He's on 62, Hendo applies pressure getting to 81

What pressure? Another D16 makes it 2-2

Hendo with the darts again.

Hendo on 160, Kantele applies the squeeze with a 140..... "hold my beer" says John. T20, T20, tops.... leg and set Henderson.

First set averages were similar, Hendo's brought down a bit by his missed doubles. If Kantele can up his scoring, he's 100% at D16...

So far tonight it's been a bit of a damp squib. Yes squib, not squid, although squid do tend to be damp

Kantele with the darts in set 2... although 47 is not the way to keep them.

Maximum's help. First to an outshot now. Albeit 157. Which he barely scratches with a 45.

Hendo has a good go at 123, leaving 25. He returns to miss two more at double. Kantele remains 100% on darts thrown at a double. Sadly for him his effort at tops landed in D1. Hendo goes round the board to get D3 and break throw

Good chance here for Hendo to consolidate his break, he's on 72. Kantele can only pressure it, if 143 is pressuring.
