Raymond Smith v Raymond van Barneveld

The second match of the night saw another Aussie in action, Raymond Smith, early in the match Smith was down 3 nil to 5 time world champion Raymond van Barneveld, however Smith had a fight back to get the match to 5 all and a decider where RVB hit a 180 at the right time to leave him a check out of 10.  Raymond Smith hung in there with a low avg in the 80’s but the experience of RVB came through.

Simon Whitlock v Daryl Gurney

Simon Whitlock is the third Aussie up playing the SuperChin Daryl Gurney.  The Wizard has just won a close encounter with Gurney taking out the match 6-5. At no time did the number 8 seed look like a winning chance until the final game when Gurney missed an opportunity on D3 to win the match but missed the chance giving Whitlock a shot a 25 D20 and he took it. It wasn’t pretty from Whitlock but it is still a win he will next play – Gerwyn Price who beat the number one seed, Peter Wright.
