For the third weekend in a row, it is been time for darts from the European Tour.
It is Friday and so it’s time again for darts. This time it is the International Darts Open, which takes place in the SACHSENarena in Germany.
The first match is between Steve Lennon and Patrik Kovacs. The Hungarian is too many a somewhat unknown name and there is also no doubt that Steve Lennon is the favorite in this match.
A little later on the day, Ron Meulenkamp will go up against Martin Schindler. This match must be the most interesting in the afternoon session. Especially if both players can hit something that resembles of their top level.
The afternoon will be closed by Jelle Klaasen, who will face Jose Justicia.
In the evening, the represent from the PDC Nordic and Baltics enters the stage, and for once it is not Darius Labanauskas, but Swedish Magnus Caris. However, Caris has not got the best draw, because he will face John Henderson.
After that, Robert Thornton faces Danny Noppert before Ross Smith faces young Kyle Anderson.
Late in the evening, Robert Marijanovic is heading for Jan Dekker. Marijanovic played magnificcent two weeks ago, but a week ago in Holland, there were far up to the top level. Jan Dekker can not know how strong an opponent he is facing.
The evening ends with the biggest match of today. Here, Steve Beaton faces Vincent van der Voort. On paper this could be a very good match, especially the psychic can play a major factor.
And then it may have occured to people that Adrian Lewis has not been mentioned at all. He has otherwise been a safe name during this year’s European Tour.
And he is once again. The Englishman has performed so well that he has advanced in the rankings so far so he has been seeded. That’s why we first get to see Jackpot tomorrow.
Otherwise, as always, you can watch the whole day’s program below and as always, the games appear on PDC.TV from one o’clock.
