Dave Chisnall, Dirk van Duijvenbode and Nathan Aspinall all victorious at Belgian Darts Open

Dave Chisnall ran out a 6-2 winner against Jelle Klaasen, Dirk van Duijvenbode scraped home 6-5 in a quality encounter versus Mervyn King. Finally Nathan Aspinall closed out a comfortable 6-1 win over Jamie Hughes.

In a battle between a former Lakeside winner and runner up, it was Dave Chisnall who started like a house on fire. A 12 dart opener was followed by 6 perfect darts to start the 2nd, eventually cleaning up in 11.

Jelle Klaasen then missed the Bull for a 170 in the 3rd leg, only to mess up the 25 finish on his return letting Chisnall into a 3-0 lead.

Chisnall then compounded Klaasen's misery by reeling in the big fish, checking out 170 to put himself a leg away at 5-1. D18 at the 4th time of asking was enough for Chisnall to finish this one, winning by 6 legs to 2.

The next saw recent World Series of Darts Finals runner-up Dirk van Duijvenbode take on the experienced Mervyn King.

The early portion of this match was all about advantage of throwing first. 5 successive holds of throw before "The Aubergenius" broke King in the 6th, gaining a 2 leg advantage for the first time in the match up. As the old saying goes however, a break is only a break if you hold. To King's credit he fired back with a 14 dart break of his own.

Van Duijvenbode missed a match dart in the 10th leg and King cleaned up it meant we were going all the way. A brilliant decider saw both players hit 180s but after King wired the bullseye for a 121 out, van Duijvenbode took out D20 3rd dart in hand to emerge victorious.

In the final match of the afternoon, Nathan Aspinall took on Jamie Hughes. A great opening leg from "The Asp", including a 180 and a great attempt at the big fish, eventually checking out D8.

A brilliant 104 from Hughes levelled things up. Aspinall returned the the favour in 4th leg, checking out 103 to go 3-1 up before a pop-pop 86 increased his lead further.

From there it seemed there was only 1 winner and that's how it transpired, a comfortable 6-1 victory for Nathan Aspinall.
