White defeats Clemens in high quality tie, Smith dumps out Aspinall

The opening matches on the second day of action at the Players Championship Finals have been completed with Ian White completing a high quality display for the Stoke ace.

White averaged 104.7 in a brilliant 6-3 victory over Gabriel Clemens with four 180's en route compared to a 98 average from 'The German Giant' in heading out.

But for Nathan Aspinall, he has headed out of the tournament in the second round to the in-form Ross Smith with 'Smudger' averaging 99 with two 180's and 40% on the doubles, the latter statistic told the story with Aspinall averaging 101 but only hitting 3/13 (23%).

While Luke Woodhouse reeled off six consecutive legs from 4-0 down to defeat Andy Boulton 6-4 and become the first player through to the Last 16 before that. While Karel Sedlacek defeated Madars Razma with a brilliant 160 checkout also on Stage Two to win through in a deciding leg.
