Raymond van Barneveld needed eleven legs to battle past Raymond Smith in the second round of the World Series of Darts Finals.
The Dutchman had an 3-0 lead against Smith, but the Australian broke back twice. He came one leg away from victory, before Barney forced a leg-decider. Smith was not able to win this leg within eighteen darts and Van Barneveld took the win.
Dave Chisnall defeated Gary Anderson as the Scotsman missed four match-darts. He missed the bullseye in the final, before ‘Chizzy’ hit a 15-dart leg in the decider. Michael Smith kicked off the session with a 6-3 victory over Kyle Anderson.
