TA Pro Tour Finals, round 1 section 2/4

Let's work the second quarter:


Ian WhiteLegSeigo Asada
11100
10211
10312
10413
10514
10615
21705
20816
31906
411006
401117
401218
511308
611408
601519
6016110

The first huge upset, as Diamond's TV woes continue, Seigo able to get a couple of quick breaks and then immediately hit back as soon as Ian tried to get back into the match.

Jeffrey de ZwaanLegWayne Warren
11100
10211
10312
21402
31502
30613
30714
30815
41905
511005
501116
611206
711306
811406
801517
801618
801719
911809
1011909
Our second deciding leg of the tournament to date with the former Matchplay semi finalist outlasting the current Lakeside champ, in a match where nobody seemed able to hold their throw for any real length of time, Warren had the darts to claim the match but couldn't get over the line.

Jeff SmithLegDaryl Gurney
00111
00212
11302
10413
10514
10615
21705
20816
31906
411006
511106
611206
711306
701417
701518
701619
811709
8018110
The twice major winner was just about able to get over the line against the dangerous Canadian, Daryl having a great first session, but while a five leg burst from Jeff threatened to change the course of the match, a key break in leg 15 was enough to get Gurney into the second round.

Mervyn KingLegSteve Beaton
11100
21200
20311
31401
41501
51601
50712
50813
61903
601014
711104
811204
801315
911405
1011505
1001616
All the experience in the world here, but it was the former World Master who got through against the former Lakeside champ, setting up a second round tie with Gurney. All the damage was done early on, Steve not being able to hold his throw until the eighth leg.

Rob CrossLegJustin Pipe
11100
10211
21301
31401
41501
40612
40713
51803
61903
601014
711104
811204
911304
901415
901516
1011606
Comfortable enough win for the former world champ, getting a break in the first session to take a 4-1 lead, and breaking straight back whenever Justin looked like he might get back into the game, including in the final leg to clinch the match.

Jermaine WattimenaLegJames Richardson
11100
10211
10312
10413
21503
31603
30714
41804
51904
501015
611105
601216
711306
701417
811507
801618
911708
1011808
It wasn't to be for the Remote Darts League champion, it looked alright with a solid first session, but Jermaine got things back on serve in the second and was never broken after that point, claiming a break from 9-8 up to avoid a potential nervy final leg decider.

Corey CadbyLegRyan Murray
11100
10211
21301
31401
41501
51601
61701
60812
60913
601014
601115
601216
601317
601418
601519
6016110
We've now lost two of the top three seeds in this section, and this is quite the collapse from Cadby, having got into a very strong 6-1 lead, one of the newest tour card holders was able to complete a remarkable turn around with a nine leg streak to get into the last 32.

Jamie HughesLegMensur Suljovic
11100
10211
21301
31401
30512
30613
30714
30815
41905
401016
401117
401218
401319
511409
5015110
And we end this section with one more seeding upset, although not a huge shock in general terms as these two match up quite evenly, Mensur being able to put his foot to the floor in the middle section of the game, turning an early 3-1 deficit into a 9-4 lead, finishing the game off shortly afterwards.

Probably do quarter three later today.
