Larry Butler kept himself in the hunt for a Remote Darts League after remaining unbeaten on Night Seventeen but his chances still remain slim.

The 62-year-old American defeated David Cameron (6-3) and Darren Herewini (6-4), plus claimed a draw against Thibault Tricole (5-5) who is now level with him.

Butler as a result has claimed 18 points from his 15 games. This means he is currently in third place but with most players around him still not having finished their campaign; his chances of making it through are slim.

This is shown with the difference between number three Butler and number ten Justin Thompson being only three points.

In the first phase of the Remote Darts League which sees twenty evenings, all participants play against each other once. Four players are involved per night, with each player completing three matches. Matches are best of 10 legs, so a 5-5 draw is possible.

After twenty days of action, the top four in the league will advance to the playoffs, which are scheduled for Monday, June 8.

All matches can be viewed via this link . The broadcast starts daily at 9pm BST.
