Delight for Cullen, Richardson Stuns Lewis

We saw another thrilling session at the German Darts Masters in Ballhausforum, Munich with the world number one in action as well as another 15 competitors. The reward for each winner would be a place in the Quarter Finals.

First to the stage was “party starter” Peter Wright and Cristo Reyes. Reyes lead for the majority of the game going up four legs to two at one point but Wright started to fight back and the game went to four legs each. A key moment came when Wright took out 124 on the bull with Reyes waiting and in the last leg decider Peter Wright showed his experience on the big stage and won the match despite Reyes having a match dart.

Next up was two time world champion Adrian Lewis against James Richardson. It started off one leg apiece despite Richardson hitting back to back 180s against the throw. It then went three legs to two in Richardson’s favour with Lewis hitting just two out of fifteen doubles. It was then a magic moment for Richardson as he took out 130 on the bull to secure a 12 dart leg and then go on to hold. Lewis kept the game alive with an 85 checkout but in the end it was Richardson who won the match 6 legs to three.

A fascinating match between Ian White and Jelle Klaasen was up next and it proved to be a tight contest. White secured a 10 dart leg to level the match at two each and followed that up with a 12-darter to break Klaasen’s throw. Klaasen responded with a break of his own and an 11 dart leg to then hold. White went on to win the next two legs and then missed three match darts and Klaasen was there to punish. The last leg decider was won by White after showing great nerve and he was through to the Quarter Finals with a 100.6 average.

Michael Smith and James Wilson were both looking for a spot in the Quarter Finals and Smith came out flying taking a 3-1 lead and averaging 103. It then went 4 legs apiece with Wilson fighting back with a 103.6 average. Smith then went on to hold which put him in a great position at 5-4. It was a brilliant 123 checkout which won Smith the match in an impressive performance.

The next match was Joe Cullen against Benito van de Pas and Cullen started well as he went up 3-2. It was hard to split them apart and Cullen took out 94 to make it 4-3 and a ton but it was only enough to put the score to 5-4. Cullen then hit seven perfect darts but somehow lost the leg with several missed match darts. It then went to a decider and Joe Cullen won the all important leg and booked his place in the Quarter Finals despite van de Pas missing four match darts.

The World Champion Gary Anderson hit the stage to play William O’Connor in the sixth match of the day. O’Connor started brilliantly with a 117 checkout and it then looked to be an interesting match as it went 2-2. Anderson then started to raise his level with an 86 finish and took 4 legs on the spin to take a comfortable 5-2 lead. Anderson then made it 5 legs in a row and won the match 6-2 with a 101 average.

Dave “Chizzy” Chisnall and future star Chris Dobey made there way to the German stage and both started well on there on throws making it two legs apiece. A moment of magic came as Chisnall converted a 164 checkout to put the score to 3-2. Dobey hit back to back 180s and a 100 checkout to make it 4-4. A crucial moment came when Dobey hit his seventh 180 and hit double 14 for a break. Dobey the went on to hold and win the match with a truly stunning performance.

Last game of the afternoon session brought the world number one to the stage Michael Van Gerwen and “The Artist” Kevin Painter. Both broke each others throw in the first two legs and it was one each. Van Gerwen secured a 115 checkout to move ahead 3-1 and followed that up with an 11 dart leg averaging 110. Painter tried to start a comeback with a 106 checkout but that wasn’t enough as Van Gerwen sailed home with a 6-2 win over “The Artist” averaging 102.8.
