The action continues in Round One of the European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen with Jeffrey de Zwaan, Gavin Carlin and Keegan Brown all through.
De Zwaan saw off debutant Stefan Bellmont in an impressive win for ‘The Black Cobra’ who continues his form that he has shown as of late.
This was highlighted with three ton plus checkouts including 156, 121 and 112 with 6/8 on the doubles as he sent out a message to the rest of the field.
Carlin was making his European Tour debut after an impressive start to the year in spells and this continues with a victory over Dragutin Horvat 6-3.
Horvat has pedigree on the European Tour so it is a great win for the Northern Irishman to start his campaign.
Brown also moved safely through with ease against Daniel Klose who was another of the Host Nation Qualifiers to be making his debut. It was finely poised at 3-3 but ‘The Needle’ streaked away to a 6-3 win in the end.
