Raymond van Barneveld and Michael Smith are through safely to the Quarter-Finals of the Melbourne Darts Masters after seeing off Raymond O’Donnell and Tim Pusey respectively.

It wasn’t as easier for Van Barneveld though who missed 21 darts at doubles throughout proceedings. Despite that though it was a 6-4 win with an 82 average which Barney will know needs to get better next round.

Smith on the other hand saw off the dangerous Tim Pusey. In his win he hit three 180’s and 60% on his doubles. This avenged his first round defeat to Mark McGrath last week in Auckland.
