The action in the second night of the PDC Home Tour Play-Offs is at it’s halfway point with victories so far for Stephen Bunting, Glen Durrant and Mike de Decker.
Bunting started proceedings by seeing off De Decker in a 6-5 win which was hard fought but impressive from ‘The Bullet’ who hit a 101.3 average and a high checkout of 122 on his way to seeing off the young Belgian.
Durrant continued in that vein as the Premier League leader hit a 104.2 average and four 180’s en route to seeing off the second St Helens native in the line-up in Alan Tabern 6-3.
Due to the cut-throat format, Tabern’s chances of potentially getting through are now slim, he went onto lose 6-5 to De Decker in a game which saw ‘The Saint’ lose a 5-2 lead to ‘The Real Deal’ who reeled off four consecutive legs to conclude a 6-5 win.
This included a 98.5 average as well as 6/9 on the doubles as it is still very much anyone’s at this stage of the night.
