European Darts Matchplay Day Two Ⅱ

Another seed who tumbled out of the event was Jelle Klaasen, with the 15th seed coming up against an inspired David Pallett.

Pallett had impressed in his first round win over Jamie Caven, and against Klaasen he rattled off the first three legs and was on a nine-darter after six darts in the fifth, where his stats showed an average of over 112.

Klaasen stopped the rot with a 78 finish to cut the deficit to 4-2 and stayed in the game with a 122 on the bull in leg eight, but Pallett stayed composed to seal a fine victory, eventually recording notable statistics of a 104.83 average and 60 percent checkout ratio.

"That's a fantastic average – I've been playing well for a while now but I need to kick on and thankfully I took my form in practice on to the stage," said Pallett.

Peter Wright enjoyed a straightforward victory over Darren Johnson beating the Yorkshireman 6-2 to set up a meeting with Benito van de Pas.

Wright took the first two legs with rapid ease before Johnson spurned numerous chances to get back into the match in leg three.

Johnson held his throw in the fifth leg to get on the board and took out 90 to win the seventh, but he couldn't otherwise trouble the third seed, who sealed a 6-2 win with double 16.

Vincent van der Voort saw off the challenge of Andy Hamilton, sealing victory with a champagne moment as he nailed two bulls-eyes and double 16 for a 132 finish to complete a 6-3 win.

Hamilton couldn't repeat his ton-plus average of Friday as he dropped to the low 80s despite a 124 check out in the opening leg, and van der Voort's deadly finishing of six successful attempts from eight was enough to set up a last 16 match with Ian White.

Mervyn King had earlier progressed past Mickey Mansell 6-4 in the first match of the evening.

King opened with a 116 checkout and then in leg six took out a ton to move 4-2 in front, but Mansell wasn't in the mood to roll over and clawed the match back to all square again before his reached in to his reserves to take the next two legs and secure the win.

The afternoon session had seen Kim Huybrechts race into the last 16, taking just 13 minutes to defeat Darren Webster 6-2 at the Olympiahalle in Innsbruck.

The Belgian Premier League star barely drew breath as he took a 4-0 lead before allowing Webster to make his mark on the scorecard with back-to-back legs, the second of which came after Huybrechts had opened with successive 180s only to follow up on his attempt for the perfect leg with a score of just 21.

But Huybrechts didn't let the setback put him off as he checked out 84 to finish with the afternoon's highest average of 101.62.

"It didn't feel that good but I'm happy with it and to get a win too," Huybrechts said. "Last week in Muelheim was a good tournament for me and I've averaged over 100 three times in a row now and that means I feel good, which is important.

"Hopefully tomorrow will go well for me too."

Terry Jenkins survived a scare against Kevin Painter to confirm his spot in the last 16 alongside Huybrechts.

Painter notched an early 167 finish and broke Jenkins' throw with a 104 checkout to lead 4-3, but the nine-time major finalist fought back and held his nerve to ensure a Sunday return.

As for professional games like European Darts Matchplay, we recommend tungsten darts. Nowadays, tungsten darts are the most popular darts among professional players. Because they found its value are far more than price. It’s all known that tungsten is a high-density metal, so it makes tungsten darts smaller than other materials (in the same weight).
