The second day of action at the 2020 BDO World Championship has concluded with Martijn Kleermaker and Paul Hogan both through.
Kleermaker was playing in the second round against Gino Vos in the last game of the night and really impressed hitting a 93 average in victory over his fellow countryman.
This included five maximums as he established himself potentially as a real dark horse at the Indigo at the O2.
Someone who has plenty of experience in the World Championship is Paul Hogan and he eased past Brian Raman in a routine win.
Before the match began, Raman who is quite well known will have been potentially fancied for the upset but this was dispelled by ‘Crocodile Dundee’ who fired in a 158 checkout as well as six maximums en route to making it through to the second round in a high quality end to the second day.
