Wayne Warren is the first through to the semi-finals at the 2020 BDO World Championship after defeating Chris Landman in the first game of the day.
Warren averaged 90 and hit an astonishing 15 180’s in a 5-3 sets victory over the Dutchman.
Landman though led and looked like he might go onto be victorious after both players had shared the first few sets and he then punished some poor scoring from Warren to go into the lead before the interval.
Warren though hit a brilliant double two to rescue the fourth set and level it up again to stop the Landman charge. He regained the lead from there to turn the tide potentially putting his average over the 90 mark.
A 94 bust saw a bit of misfortune for Landman as Warren came in and emerged with the sixth set and he was one away from victory from there and claimed it from there to set up a tie with Scott Waites or Scott Mitchell next for a place in the final.
