Schedule and preview Friday evening session 2023 European Darts Open including Van Barneveld, Ross Smith, Hempel-Wade and Dobey

Friday evening sees the continuation and conclusion of the first round at the 2023 European Darts Open with eight games set including multiple top German names aiming to delight the home crowd in Leverkusen.

But starting proceedings off is a top tie between John Henderson who has just fallen off the tour against Jim Williams who is making strides on the tour. The winner faces Dave Chisnall.

European Champion, Ross Smith follows up against rising debutant, Pascal Rupprecht, followed by Nico Kurz' return to the European Tour facing Ryan Meikle.

Fresh off his homecoming, Chris Dobey due to qualifying instead of being a seed doesn't get the luxury of starting on Saturday and will instead face Maik Kuivenhoven tonight.

Raymond van Barneveld could face Michael van Gerwen, he first faces Filip Sebesta before two top Germans take to the stage in Florian Hempel and Gabriel Clemens facing James Wade and a resurgent Ian White. Stephen Bunting and Daryl Gurney conclude proceedings.
