Nicholson and Huybrechts rewatch their classic 2015 World Cup of Darts clash
The PDC have began a series which sees players watch back their top matches at the World Cup of Darts in this instance and one match barring the 2012 final stands out for Paul Nicholson.
That is his tie with Kim Huybrechts who produced another feisty tungsten tussle on the oche back in 2015; the duo sat down with Dan Dawson five years on to re-live it.
"Luckily for me, I was always used to playing doubles with Ronny (Huybrechts) because when we played BDO tournaments or represented our country in the BDO circuit we also played doubles together so the pressure of letting Ronny down was less," said Huybrechts.
"But it is one of the biggest tournaments in the world and to be honest my favourite tournament. The set-up is so amazing, the feeling is beautiful to represent your country," said Nicholson.
"I felt a lot of pressure especially after missing championship darts in 2012. I made the bold statement that I was going to win this with Simon (Whitlock) some day. I mis-spoke there because I didn't want to win it with Simon, I wanted to win it for him. I actually put too much pressure on myself."
On facing each other
In terms of facing each other, for Huybrechts it was all about getting to the doubles always in the World Cup while for Nicholson by his own admission, it was about adding wins to his record against the Belgian which wasn't the best at that point.
"Obviously when you play players like Paul and Simon, you know it's going to be a tough game. It's going to be a hard game," Huybrechts added.
"I always say to Ronny, everytime we played against a difficult country; if we can make it to the doubles we can win it because we are so strong as a pair. So our goal every year was make it to the doubles."
"I think up to that point I'd beaten Kim once, so when I was pitched against him in the singles, I thought this is an uphill struggle for me because I've not only got to contain my own fire but got to contain my want to beat him and to rectify some of the bad record against him," Nicholson continued.
