Dobey dominance over Martinez as Clemens survives potential Lukasiak scare to close first round at German Darts Grand Prix

The Easter weekend darting festivities have begun with Chris Dobey and Gabriel Clemens successfully navigating their way into the second round in Munich at the German Darts Grand Prix.

This will be one of the only weekends of the year given that Dobey has to qualify that 'Hollywood' won't have to go straight from the Premier League to European Tour but he brought some of that magic onto the big stage.

He eased past Spaniard, Tony Martinez who averaged only 75 in a 6-1 thrashing which saw Dobey land a 101.5 average and five 180's. Next up tomorrow is Dimitri van den Bergh in a familiar Premier League meeting.

While Gabriel Clemens closed the evening and faced unknown Swede, Oskar Lukasiak and at one point was in trouble.

After leading for the most part in the opening part of the match, Lukasiak kept holding throw to make it 5-3, but Clemens missed multiple match darts allowing him back for a last dart double 16.

He made it 5-4 and was throwing to send it to the decider with all of the pressure on Clemens. Clemens missed the second treble 17 for 134 but left it handy in case Lukasiak couldn't take 74 and he got one dart at double 20 which he missed well high.

This allowed Clemens back finally for double 10 for the victory. He faces Damon Heta tomorrow.
