Dave Chisnall started the run of games against BDO opposition by defeating Scott Mitchell. Mitchell always cuts it on the Grand Slam stage despite not being in amazing form and this showed with a 100+ average with Chizzy averaging only 93.3 but three 180’s and brilliant finishing from the St Helens ace grabbed him a 5-2 win to add to a win for Stephen Bunting in the group earlier on.
Also in the winning column to add to Michael Smith in that group is Mensur Suljovic, the Austrian also won 5-2 against BDO World Number One Mark McGeeney including a blockbuster 161 checkout to win the match. Mensur wasn’t his usual self on the doubles and had to rely on not the greatest performance from the Gladiator to win in the way he did but a winning start will relieve the Gentle.
