The next three players through to the second round at the International Darts Open in Riesa are Kyle Anderson, Justin Pipe and John Henderson.
Anderson averaged 99.6 in seeing off Arron Monk in a tie that saw the latter miss one match dart at tops in the decider. It was a closely ran affair with Monk himself averaging 97 but ‘The Original’ moved through.
Pipe and Henderson also moved through but the duo didn’t play to their capabilities. ‘The Force’ saw off debutant Christian Jentschke in a 6-3 win with a 80 average.
‘The Highlander’ won against Brett Claydon in a 6-4 win despite a 79.79 average. It was the doubling stats that made the difference though in a closely ran tie with 37.5 compared to 33.3 percent.
Despite Henderson’s brilliant double header in Barnsley, he will hope to play better than today as the weekend goes on.
