Lerchabcher on for a break here

41 from 161 is not a great set up, he'll be back to make a mess of shanghai by sliding into T1

Brown gets big 1 looking for tops to take out 117. Jeebus, they can't find the right beds now. 6 looking for D10 from Zoran, Brown nips in and takes the leg.

The crowd ought to be singing, "please take me home"

Brown should be throwing at 19s all the time, he's hitting that more than not. He insists on groping for 20s though

...and then we get a near miss at a 167 outshot. Moments of quality continue to intersperse the mediocrity

Somehow, Zoran needs to manufacture a break here.

Brown on the cusp of a 13 dart finish. D16... first time! He's missed it more often than anything else so far today

Zoran has the darts in this set, can he take it to a decider? Do we care?

Looking for 117 to nick the throw, we are treated to single 1 from Brown. Zoran however, can't get 9. Brown T18, D12 boom, boom and he has the edge.
