Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright through trouble-free to quarter-finals at Poland Darts Masters

Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright have easily made it to the last eight at the Poland Darts Masters in Gliwice. For the defending champion, 'MVG' conceded just one leg against Karel Sedlacek.

Van Gerwen threw out 115 in the first leg and then threw a 17-darter in the second leg. A 14-darter and an 18-darter then doubled the lead to 4-0. Sedlacek had a chance to get on the scoreboard in the fifth leg, but the Czech missed the bullseye. Van Gerwen then hit tops to make it 5-0. Sedlacek then threw an 11-darter to still take a leg, before Van Gerwen made the final score 6-1 with a 72 finish.

Peter Wright had no trouble with television debutant Jacek Krupka, who posted an average of just 64.91 on his first major appearance. The Pole still had six chances to take a leg against "Snakebite" but failed to cash in. Four of these chances came as early as the first leg. This leg eventually went to Wright with a 23-darter. In the second leg, Krupka had two more chances to win the match, but these also went up in smoke. With a second consecutive 23-darter, Wright doubled his lead.

A 19-darter followed in the third leg, before Wright produced a decent leg for the first time with a 15-darter in the fourth leg. The Scot seemed to have finally found his range and concluded the match with two more 15-darters for a 6-0 victory.

The World Series tournament in Poland is the fifth tournament of the season on the World Series circuit. In January, Luke Littler won the Bahrain Darts Masters, while Michael van Gerwen took the overall victory at the Dutch Darts Masters in Den Bosch.

Rob Cross captured the title in early June at the US Darts Masters in New York, and Gerwyn Price showed the best at the Nordic Darts Masters in Copenhagen. Later this year, World Series tournaments will also be played in Australia and New Zealand before the World Series Finals take place Sept. 13-15 in Amsterdam.
