The semi-final line-up at Players Championship 11 is confirmed with Ian White, James Wade, Michael Smith and Steve West all moving through to the latter stages in Barnsley.
White came through by smashing Andy Boulton 6-1 with a 98 average. ‘Diamond’ is known as one of the best ProTour players out there and is living up to that moniker once again.
A tough test awaits though in James Wade after he came through in a battle of last weekend’s winners against Jonny Clayton. He averaged 96 in a 6-3 victory against the Welshman.
Michael Smith was probably the one player in the line-up to have to really work for his win coming through a last leg decider against Glen Durrant.
They both averaged around the 95 mark in a closely fought game and he will now take on Steve West in the next round.
West defeated Jelle Klaasen in his Quarter-Final in a 6-2 win in his best run in a little while and will now have his sights set on claiming the title at the end of the day.
