Ian White, Ron Meulenkamp and Mervyn King are the final players to move through to the final day of action from the afternoon session on Day Two at the Czech Darts Open.
White saw off Karel Sedlacek as ‘Diamond’ continued his European Tour form and defied the partisan crowd to defeat the Czech ace who looked good in his first round tie on Friday. He did so with a 99.7 average.
Meulenkamp kept his World Matchplay hopes alive with a brilliant win over Steve Beaton in which he edged out ‘The Bronzed Adonis’ 6-4 and with the likes of William O’Connor losing out, it could be a golden weekend for ‘The Bomb’.
King finally produced a dominant display in seeing off James Wade in a 6-2 victory. This included a 97 average, 6/7 on the doubles with a high checkout of 155 as ‘The King’ returned to form on the European Tour stage.
