Huybrechts sees off Henderson in strong display, Hopp edges past Ljubic
In facing John Henderson, it was a battle of two World Cup of Darts participants but it was Huybrechts who came out on top. He claimed it 6-2 with two 180's and 6/14 on his doubles this was compared to only 2/7 from his opponent.
Max Hopp will also be at the World Cup of Darts alongside Gabriel Clemens and despite a big disparity in their averages, it wasn't an easy game for the Maximiser.
