Anderson, de Zwaan, Beaton & Hendriks through
Kyle Anderson continued his great form in a brilliant game with Justin Pipe which he won 6-4 with both men playing a really high standard. An average of 109 sees him through to face Mervyn King in Round 2 tomorrow.
Jeffrey de Zwaan showed some great form on his Euro Tour return defeating John Michael 6-4 and to set up a dutch derby with Michael van Gerwen tomorrow.
Steve Beaton started his weekend with a win against the confident youngster Nico Blum. The Bronzed Adonis had a 85 average and is through to face Mensur Suljovic tomorrow.
Rene Berndt put in a very impressive performance against Jimmy Hendriks but due to the crowd being on the side of 'Captain Jimmy' he couldn't get over the line squandering 10 match darts. Hendriks came back to win 6-5 in a decider despite averaging 89 to Berndt's 100 and he will face Joe Cullen in the second round.
