Anastasia Dobromyslova became the first BDO world finalist in the 2018 competition with a 2-0 win over Trina Gulliver.
Three-time world champion Dobromyslova continued her fine form with an 84.73 average as she reached her first Lakeside final since 2013.
Dobromyslova did not lose a single leg leading up to her meeting with Gulliver. Even the ten-time champion could only muster two legs herself. Both came in the first set, which came down to a deciding leg. Anastasia kept her cool to find double ten and take the lead.
The Golden Girl was unable to find a response to Dobromyslova’s scoring, and the sixth seed narrowly missed double 16 for a 149 before closing out the leg. A classy 15-darter, with a 140 followed by a 180, handed ‘From Russia With Love’ the win. She will take on Deta Hedman or Lisa Ashton in tomorrow’s final.
