Michael Smith started proceedings in the afternoon session by dispatching someone in very good form in ‘The Ferret’ Jonny Clayton 6-3. Smith averaged 94 in his win and is the first man through to the Quarter-Finals this evening.
Rob Cross will face Smith after ‘Voltage’ dispatched Keegan Brown 6-2 in the highest average performance of the day so far. Cross averaged 105 against Brown in a 6-2 win against a tricky opponent who is returning to form.
Dave Chisnall is also through after overcoming Jelle Klaasen. ‘Chizzy’ will face either Peter Wright or Kim Huybrechts later on after averaging 100 and hitting six 180’s to win 6-3.
He will face Huybrechts in the Quarter-Finals after ‘The Hurricane’ defeated Peter Wright 6-3. Wright averaged 110 and mounted a late comeback but his doubling let him down and Huybrechts pounced to get through with only a 98 average.
