The evening session is complete at the 2020 BDO World Championship with Laura Turner and Andreas Harrysson claiming victories.

Turner is into the Quarter-Finals in the Ladies draw as she defeated a familiar foe in Deta Hedman to claim her first win in the BDO World Championship.

Both Turner and Hedman averaged around 64 throughout but it was the former who held the advantage for most of the contest. The Byfleet ace will take on Corrine Hammond next up.

Harrysson defeated an underpar John O’Shea who could not recapture his form which saw him win the World Masters only a few months ago.

This was especially the case in the earlier sets as Harrysson was averaging around 87 to O’Shea’s 67 and it was soon 2-0 to the Swede.

‘The Joker’ finally got into his rhythm in the next set taking it and then sending it the distance at 2-2. Would there be a huge comeback on the way?

‘Dirty Harry’ was going off the boil ever so slightly towards the end but clamoured over the line giving O’Shea too much to do in the end.
