After Rowby-John Rodriguez was unable to qualify for a tournament on the PDC European Tour in the recent past, he has taken advantage of the opportunity presented to him in Hungary, where he is finally back on the tour.
In the eighth leg, Rodriguez managed to break to 4-4, but immediately afterwards had to watch as his Hungarian opponent restored the old gap with 5-4 and had four match darts in the tenth leg. However, Kovács couldn't take advantage of this and Little John broke to make it 5-5.
Now it was Rodriguez's turn to throw to win the match. This almost went wrong because the Hungarian had another match dart, which again missed its target. Rodriguez took his last chance and closed the bag to face Ryan Searle in the second round.
