The second day of the Austrian Darts Championship is upon us, unfortunately without Cor Dekker.
Cor Dekker did not manage to win yesterday against Dietmar Burger. Both players played with almost the same average, unfortunately for Cor Dekker, Dietmar Burger was magnificent on the doubles with a checkout percentage at 85,71 %.
This means Dietmar Burger will have to go up against Dave Chisnall today. Other than Dave Chisnall, 15 other seeded players will come into the tournament today.
The first one is Steve Beaton, who will take on James Wilson. Vincent van der Voort managed to beat Justin Pipe, and will therefore go up against Simon Whitlock.
Gerwyn Price will take on Brendan Dolan, after this we will see the Dietmar Burger against Dave Chisnall match and afterwards Ricky Evans will take on Kirk Shepherd.
Michael Smith has to go up against Cameron Menzies, who won 6-1 against Kevin Munch yesterday. Ian White takes on Rusty-Jake Rodriguez, who managed to proceed to today, just as his big brother.
Adrian Lewis will be the last man on stage this afternoon, as he takes on Christian Bunse.
In the evening we will see Nathan Aspinall against Keegan Brown, before Daryl Gurney takes on the older Rodriguez, as he meets Rowby-John Rodriguez.
Jonny Clayton will go up against Mike De Decker, who surprisingly won 6-5 against Chris Dobey yesterday.
The two dancers, Peter Wright and Dimitri van den Bergh will clash today. The two have met each other seven times, where as Peter Wright has won five of them.
Mensur Suljovic will go up against Adam Gawlas, before Joe Cullen takes on Luke Humphries.
Michael van Gerwen will go up against Kyle Anderson. The two of them met as late as at NZ Darts Masters, in which Michael van Gerwen won 6-5.
The day ends with Darren Webster, who takes on Jeffrey de Zwaan.
