Race to European Championship ahead of final day at International Darts Open

The Race to the European Championship is almost concluded going into the final day of action at the International Darts Open in Riesa.

Currently four players sit outside the reckoning but are still in the tournament going into the afternoon session.

Those players are Franz Roetzsch who is currently on £4,000 and with Jeffrey de Zwaan, Kim Huybrechts and William O'Connor not involved in Germany, a win over Krzysztof Ratajski will put the debutant in.

Ross Smith, Scott Baker and Jesus Noguera are just behind on £3,000 and will go up to £5,000 with victories.

Andy Hamilton is currently in the European Championship ahead of his tie with Michael van Gerwen and again a victory would see him up into 21st place with Ian White and Dirk van Duijvenbode on £6,500 not involved. This would assure him of his spot come what may.

Ron Meulenkamp despite defeat early on in Riesa could also get in with Glen Durrant having to self-isolate after a positive COVID-19 test. If 'Duzza' cannot make it, he will take the next available spot currently in 33rd.
