Harms survives scare to defeat Harrysson and move into third round
Wesley Harms is successfully through to the third round at the 2020 BDO World Championship after defeating Andreas Harrysson.
Harms is number one seed but despite that had issues at times against the Swede who impressed yesterday during his victory over World Master, John O'Shea.
The first set went to Harms but he was lucky to do so as he survived a 105 average from 'Dirty Harry' with both players showing some of the best darts so far on the Indigo stage.
From there, Harrysson fought back with a 95 checkout making it 1-1 and despite a slight drop in standard, it continued to be a close tie. From there a 180 from the Swede saw him take the next set and potentially send the Dutchman crashing out.
Harms showed some bottle though and took out 76 to make it 2-2 and send it all the way. From there, 'Sparky' just edged out proceedings as he attempts to live up to his top seed billing.
