Klaasen close to securing PDC Home Tour Finals place after double win
The semi-finals of the PDC Home Tour begin on Wednesday night with the top two players moving through to the Championship Group and one player who seems likely to be through is Jelle Klaasen.
Klaasen has claimed two wins from two so far to put himself right in contention. He began the night by pouncing on some poor play from Dave Chisnall who hit no 180's and 25 percent on the doubles; which allowed 'The Cobra' a 6-2 win.
From there, he made it back to back with a 6-3 win over Mike de Decker with a high checkout of 152. The former Lakeside World Champion was a spoiler in terms of Peter Wright moving through in the last phase; but can he end the hopes of either Anderson or Chisnall tonight similarly?
Gary Anderson himself was lucky to win his first tie against Mike de Decker as he was given a scare with a late comeback from 5-2 up; the Belgian forced a decider but the two-time World Champion claimed the points as he looks to continue his form.
In addition all live-scores can be followed on DartConnect; with match statistics being available after every match.
