Chris Dobey dumps out Dimitri van den Bergh at World Grand Prix

Dimitri van den Bergh was the latest big name to leave Leicester with Chris Dobey accounting for him at the World Grand Prix.

Dobey played a fine match against the Belgian. 'Hollywood' recorded an average of 91, which is more than decent with the double-in double-out. Moreover, he managed to hit the opening double in all legs within his first turn. For Van den Bergh, that percentage was 80 percent.

The first set was a 3-2 win for Dobey, who struck with a 14-darter in the fifth leg. The reigning Masters champion then made it 2-0 in the second set via a 70 finish and a 16-darter. Van den Bergh fought his way back to 2-2, but then experienced a very sloppy fifth leg. Dobey took advantage and took the win in two sets.

Ryan Searle managed to join the last sixteen on Tuesday night by defeating Damon Heta 2-1 in sets. In this match, the opening doubles proved decisive.

In 77 percent of the legs, Searle was open with his first dart. For Heta, that percentage was only 15 percent. The first set was still won by Heta, but the win eventually went to "Heavy Metal" 2-1 in sets.
