Jose de Sousa reached the last sixteen at the expense of Jonny Clayton. A special moment in this match was the ninth leg, in which Clayton thought he would make it 5-4 via single 18, single 20 and bullseye.

However, Clayton was on 68 and not 86, so the leg passed him by. De Sousa hit the double 6 to make it 5-4. De Sousa then finished the job with a 17-darter.
