Belgian Darts Championship 2020 Day Three preview and order of play: Last 16 vie for glory in Hasselt

The first European Tour silverware of the season is up for grabs in Hasselt on Sunday as the 16 remaining hopefuls vie to be crowned Belgian Darts Champion.

Five seeded players departed the £140,000 tournament at the Second Round stage on Saturday, leaving a mixture of former champions and in-form challengers to battle it out for the title.

The afternoon session plays host to the Third Round ties, kicking off with a stand-out encounter between Premier League stars Michael van Gerwen and Michael Smith.

A repeat of the 2019 world final sees Van Gerwen aiming to move a step closer to a first title of 2020 and a 33rd European Tour title in total by knocking out Thursday’s nine-dart hero.

Van Gerwen himself missed double 12 for a perfect leg against Mike De Decker in Round Two, while Smith averaged 103 in a 6-1 demolition of Ronny Huybrechts.

Van Gerwen has won seven of their last eight meetings and 30 of their 37 in total, including each of their last six European Tour encounter.

Reigning World Champion Peter Wright, the second most successful player in European Tour history, looks to raise his game from a sluggish Second Round showing when he takes on in-form Danny Noppert.

Wright averaged just 91 in a 6-2 win over Andy Hamilton, while Noppert produced the performance of the day to see off Jermaine Wattimena with a blistering 109 average.

Two of last season’s European Tour event winners collide as world number three Gerwyn Price faces a tough test against Czech Open champion Jamie Hughes.

Mervyn King, whose maiden Euro Tour title came back in 2014, looks to pick up from where he left off on Saturday when he faces impressive debutant Martijn Kleermaker.

King averaged 106 in defeating Glen Durrant 6-4 and now aims to avoid becoming the third consecutive scalp of PDC newcomer Kleermaker – who has already sent home top 16 stars Stephen Bunting and Joe Cullen.

Two of last season’s most prolific winners lock horns as World Matchplay and European Champion Rob Cross faces Gibraltar Trophy winner Krzysztof Ratajski.

Cross has made a below-par start to the season by his standards but began this campaign with a 6-1 rout of Damon Heta, while recent Players Championship event winner Ratajski averaged 98 in a 6-2 defeat of Gabriel Clemens.

Cross comfortably came out on top in their televised meetings at the 2018 UK Open and 2019 World Matchplay, while Ratajski has beaten ‘Voltage’ three times in floor competition.

World number eight plays world number nine as current UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall takes on former UK Open champion James Wade.

Aspinall has seemingly picked up from where he left off in a landmark 2019 and is now pushing for a first European Tour triumph, while Wade will be hoping to ignite an otherwise slow start to the season by dispatching the Premier League star.

An all-Dutch affair sees former World Matchplay semi-finalist Jeffrey de Zwaan take on a resurgent Dirk van Duijvenbode.

De Zwaan defeated home favourite Kim Huybrechts in Round Two, while Van Duijvenbode averaged 101.5 in seeing off Luke Woodhouse in Round One before dumping out second seed Ian White to reach the final day of a Euro Tour event for the first time.

World number 12 Mensur Suljovic looks to continue his title challenge under the radar by overcoming power-scoring Steve West, whose match averages so far have varied by 22 points, with a 100.6 taking care of Jonny Clayton in Round Two.

The action gets underway from midday GMT, with Last 16 and Quarter-Final matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs, Semi-Finals best of 13 and the final best of 15.

King defeats Durrant at the Belgian Darts Championship as White and Cullen also crash out

Mervyn King turned on the style with a 106 to dispatch Glen Durrant in Round Two of the Belgian Darts Championship on Saturday, as five seeds were sent packing in Hasselt.

Day two of the season’s first European Tour event saw the majority of the big names safely progress unscathed, but Premier League star Durrant was punished for more missed doubles by a ruthless King.

The first four legs were shared before King broke throw in the fifth and went on to land a 140 checkout to make it 5-2.

Durrant replied with back-to-back legs to apply the pressure, but King sealed the deal efficiently with a 13-darter to book his place in Sunday’s Last 16.

Elsewhere, Michael van Gerwen began his latest quest for a first ranking title of 2020 with a 6-3 victory over Belgian youngster Mike De Decker.

The pair were locked level after four legs but only for Van Gerwen to reel off three in a row to take command.

De Decker stopped the rot in leg eight before Van Gerwen came agonisingly close to winning the match in spectacular fashion as he missed double 12 for a nine-darter.

Nonetheless, the world number one returned to clinch victory and set up a Last 16 show-down with fellow Premier League star Michael Smith.

Smith had earlier thrashed host nation qualifier Ronny Huybrechts 6-1 with a 103.3 average and 50 per cent on the doubles.

World Champion Peter Wright recovered from a sluggish start to safely see off 2012 world finalist Andy Hamilton 6-2 despite an average of just 91.

Gerwyn Price, who defeated Wright in the Premier League in Dublin on Thursday, was also below-par, but had more than enough in the locker to overcome Wesley Plaisier 6-1 despite an average of just 89.

World Matchplay champion Rob Cross landed three 180s and a 127 checkout on his way to a 6-1 rout of Damon Heta to gain a degree of revenge for his defeat to the Australian in last August’s Brisbane Masters final.

Dirk van Duijvenbode continued his superb start to the season by knocking out second seed Ian White 6-3, punishing just 23 per cent on the doubles from the Stoke star.

Krzysztof Ratajski began his bid for a second European Tour title with a commanding 6-2 win over Gabriel Clemens with a 98 average and 60 per cent on the doubles.

Danny Noppert produced the performance of the day as he averaged 109 and hit five maximums in a 6-2 victory over fellow Dutchman Jermaine Wattimena.

PDC newcomer Martijn Kleermaker continued his dream Euro Tour debut by following up his First Round win over Stephen Bunting with a Second Round scalp of Joe Cullen.

UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall averaged 98.7 and produced a magnificent 167 checkout en route to a 6-3 victory over Steve Beaton, while Steve West averaged 100 in seeing off Jonny Clayton 6-2 despite a 104 average from the Welshman.

James Wade averaged 97.7 in an assured start as he defeated Irish ace Steve Lennon 6-3, while Mensur Suljovic defied a 170 checkout from Ryan Searle to close out a 6-4 success with two ton-plus finishes of his own.

Jamie Hughes, last year’s Czech Open champion, held his nerve in front of a partisan home crowd to edge out Belgian number one Dimitri van den Bergh in a last-leg decider.

All four remaining Belgians were dumped out of the tournament as Kim Huybrechts also went down 6-4 to Jeffrey de Zwaan with 15 missed darts at doubles proving fatal for The Hurricane.

Sunday sees the Last 16 ties take place in the afternoon session before the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and final are held in the evening session.

Belgian Darts Championship 2020 Day Two preview and order of play: Seeded stars begin their Euro Tour campaigns

The top 16 seeds commence their 2020 European Tour campaigns at the Belgian Darts Championship in Hasselt on Saturday as Round Two takes centre stage.

The opening day of the £140,000 tournament saw four Belgian hopefuls progress, while Stephen Bunting, Luke Humphries and Justin Pipe were among the notable names to suffer early exits.

Part One of an unmissable double-header on Saturday kicks off with a clash between multiple major finalist Michael Smith and a resurgent Ronny Huybrechts.

Smith returns to action less than 48 hours after hitting a sensational nine-darter in the Premier League in Dublin and will look to carry that form into this contest against his veteran opponent who thrashed Humphries 6-1 on Friday despite having dropped off the main tour.

A repeat of last August’s Brisbane Masters final sees Rob Cross aiming to take revenge on Australian ace Damon Heta – who marked a dream European Tour debut with a 104 average in whitewashing Michael Barnard on Friday.

Premier League star Glen Durrant also faces a tough opener as he takes on Euro Tour stalwart Mervyn King, while Jermaine Wattimena and Danny Noppert collide in an all-Dutch affair.

Ian White, a two-time European Tour event winner last season, starts out with a tricky clash against in-form Dirk van Duijvenbode – a semi-finalist on the ProTour after regaining his Tour Card at Q School.

Krzysztof Ratajski, who already has a Players Championship title to his name this season, as well as last year’s Gibraltar Trophy, takes on Germany’s most in-form darter Gabriel Clemens in another mouth-watering tie.

Joe Cullen, who claimed his first Euro Tour title last season, begins this campaign against former BDO star Martijn Kleermaker – who pulled off a shock scalp of Bunting in Round One.

The final match of the afternoon sees world number nine and former European Champion James Wade take on Irish ace Steve Lennon – who landed a nine-darter and reached the Semi-Finals on the ProTour last weekend.

The evening session gets underway with a show-down between UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall and former BDO World Champion Steve Beaton.

Gerwyn Price, twice a winner of the International Open, looks to safely progress past Dutch qualifier Wesley Plaisier, while world number 12 Mensur Suljovic faces a tough opener against recent Players Championship event winner Ryan Searle.

Michael van Gerwen, who has won an astonishing 32 European Tour titles, looks to kick-start his charge towards a first ranking title of 2020 by overcoming Belgian youngster Mike De Decker – who edged out Ron Meulenkamp 6-5 in Round One.

Reigning World Champion Peter Wright begins his bid for a seventh career Euro Tour triumph with a clash against a rejuvenated Andy Hamilton.

Wright was out of sorts in the Premier League in Dublin on Thursday, losing 7-1 to Price, and will be determined to get that defeat out of his system by denying ‘The Hammer’ another comeback win on his first Euro Tour outing since 2017.

Czech Open champion Jamie Hughes aims to crush the hopes of home favourite Dimitri van den Bergh, while Kim Huybrechts – the PDC’s most successful Belgian – returns to face Dutch star Jeffrey de Zwaan.

Premier League Challenger Jonny Clayton looks to put a poor run of form behind him when he takes on Steve West – who needed an average of just 78 to whitewash Jeffrey van Egdom on Friday night.

The action gets underway from midday GMT, with all matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs.

Huybrechts brothers enjoy home wins on Day One of the Belgian Darts Championship

Belgian Brothers Kim and Ronny Huybrechts claimed home wins as the 2020 European Tour got underway on Friday with the opening round of the Belgian Darts Championship.

Day One of the £140,000 tournament in Hasselt witnessed wins for four Belgian stars, as the Huybrechts brothers were joined in progressing by Dimitri Van den Bergh and Mike De Decker.

Former World Cup finalist Kim Huybrechts recorded a 6-2 win over Ryan Harrington to begin his bid for a third European Tour title.

The Antwerp thrower led 3-0 before Harrington hit back to 3-2, but he crucially missed four darts to level in leg six as Huybrechts capitalised on the let-off to close out victory, setting up a second round tie with Jeffrey de Zwaan.

Elder brother Ronny was in clinical form as he landed six doubles from nine attempts in a 6-1 rout of World Youth Champion Luke Humphries – who endured a day to forget on the doubles.

Two-time World Youth Champion Van den Bergh secured a 6-3 win over Euro Tour debutant Derk Telnekes, sealing a Second Round meeting with 2019 Czech Open champion Jamie Hughes.

De Decker, meanwhile, was a narrow 6-5 winner over Dutchman Ron Meulenkamp, setting up a tasty tie with world number one Michael van Gerwen on Saturday.

There was disappointment, though for Geert De Vos as the qualifier went down 6-2 to Danny Noppert, while Steve West whitewashed newcomer Jeffrey van Edgom 6-0.

Brisbane Masters champion Damon Heta enjoyed a superb European Tour debut with a 6-0 whitewash of Michael Barnard, averaging an impressive 102.5.

Dirk van Duijvenbode also posted a ton-plus average, seeing off Luke Woodhouse 6-4 with six doubles from ten attempts and a 101.6 average in moving through to meet number two seed Ian White.

Germany’s Gabriel Clemens now plays Krzysztof Ratajski – the winner of last year’s final European Tour event in Gibraltar – in round two after defeating Callan Rydz 6-3.

Steve Lennon defied finishes of 151 and 124 from Rowby-John Rodriguez as he came from 3-2 down to win 6-3 and progress to a second round tie with James Wade.

Mervyn King was a 6-4 winner over Justin Pipe in a clash of former European Tour event winners, securing a meeting with Glen Durrant on Saturday.

Dutch debutant Martijn Kleermaker survived a fightback from 5-1 down by Stephen Bunting before claiming a 6-4 win in his first European Tour appearance, and he now plays Joe Cullen in round two.

Wesley Plaisier was another Dutchman to progress, edging out Slovenia’s Benjamin Pratnemer 6-5 in a tight contest to earn a meeting with world number three Gerwyn Price.

Recent Players Championship winner Ryan Searle was too strong for debutant Darren Penhall with a 6-3 success, setting up a second round tie with Mensur Suljovic.

Steve Beaton now plays Nathan Aspinall in round two after seeing off Hong Kong’s Kai Fan Leung 6-4, while Andy Hamilton made a winning return to the European Tour stage with a 6-5 defeat of Andy Boulton, moving himself through to a meeting with World Champion Peter Wright.

Belgian Darts Championship 2020 Day One preview and order of play: Euro Tour kicks off in Hasselt

The curtain is raised on the 2020 PDC European Tour on Friday with the First Round action at the inaugural Belgian Darts Championship in Hasselt.

The first of 13 European Tour events this season, and the first ever to be held in Belgium, features 48 players competing over three days for £140,000 in prize money.

The top 16 players from the ProTour Order of Merit are seeded and enter at the Second Round stage on Saturday, while the 32 qualifiers battle it out on Day One for the right to join them.

World Championship quarter-finalist Dimitri van den Bergh stars in the evening session as the top-ranked Belgian, and he looks to delight his home crowd by defeating Dutch debutant Derk Telnekes – twice a Lakeside qualifier.

Former World Champion Steve Beaton aims to press home his vast experience against Euro Tour debutant Kai Fan Leung of Hong Kong – who has made a bright start to life as a Tour Card holder after coming through Q School in January.

Ronny Huybrechts came through Thursday’s Host Nation qualifier to seal his spot in the main event but faces a tough test against World Youth Champion and next week’s Premier League Challenger Luke Humphries.

Former PDC world finalist Andy Hamilton marks his first Euro Tour appearance since 2017 with a Stoke derby against Andy Boulton.

Brisbane Masters champion Damon Heta gets his first taste of the Euro Tour stage when he faces Michael Barnard – whose torrid run of form has seen him pick up just £1,500 in prize money since the start of last season.

A tasty tussle in the afternoon session sees 2014 Lakeside Champion Stephen Bunting take on PDC newcomer Martijn Kleermaker – who stormed through European Q School after featuring in January’s BDO World Championship.

Recent Players Championship event winner Ryan Searle aims to continue his fine start to the season when he faces new Tour Card holder Darren Penhall in the opening match of the day.

Dutch qualifier Wesley Plaisier takes on Slovenia’s Benjamin Pratnemer, while multiple major quarter-finalist Steve West meets Belgian qualifier Jeffrey Van Egdom.

Kim Huybrechts, one of the most successful players in the history of Belgian darts, aims to raise the roof by overcoming Ryan Harrington – who came through yesterday’s Associate Member qualifier.

One of the stand-out ties of the evening sesion sees German Masters runner-up Gabriel Clemens take on two-time Challenge Tour event winner Callan Rydz – who impressed on his World Championship debut in December.

Belgian youngster Mike De Decker takes on Dutch left-hander Ron Meulenkamp in another intriguing battle, while in-form Dirk van Duijvenbode faces Luke Woodhouse – who made the Last 32 of the recent World Championship.

Steve Lennon – who hit a nine-darter on the ProTour last weekend – meets Austria’s Rowby-John Rodriguez, while World Series Finals runner-up Danny Noppert takes on 2015 BDO World Trophy winner Geert de Vos – one of three Host Nation qualifiers.

The action gets underway from midday GMT, with all matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs.
