Fantastic bit of trust from Michael Unterbuchner in the double 20 today :d 

 

All 9 of his first attempts at that double were missed, but he kept doing everything he could to get himself to 40. And I meant that literally: when he was at 83, he could have gone for a treble and then two shots at a double, but he went for single bull + 18 to leave tops (and missed it). The first time he finally hit double 20 was when he had 60 left and was aiming for the single :lol: (though props to him, because after a million misses on the doubles he suddenly finished 60 with D20 and D10 there)

 

In the final set it finally paid out, as Unterbuchner hit double 20 at a deciding moment. His opponent, Canadian David Cameron, had his own problems by the way: all of his gear got lost somewhere on the travel to England, so he was playing with a set of darts borrowed from Mark McGeeney and playing in a BDO-jersey that was at least 5 sizes too big.

Straight from a 1970's/1980's British band comes Scott Baker, playing Belgian Andy Baetens at the moment.

Fitton and Thompson battling on in today's last match. This can go on for quite a while.

Brilliant match by Geert de Vos so far, averaging far over 100 after a bit more than one set :bowdown:

Telnekes came on to the oche, threw his dart.....hit D20 and thought he won the leg, only to hear 'No score', because he had 30 left instead of 40 :lol:

Defending champion Glen Durrant made a statement about the future:

 

If he reaches the semi-finals at Lakeside, he'll stay at the BDO for the rest of his career.

If he loses to Fitton in the 2nd round or loses the quarter-final, he'll try the PDC Q-School.

Lakeside is starting to be a really good tournament this year. Scott Waites and Glen Durrant escaped against Andy Baetens and Jim Williams in today's quarter finals, both were very exciting matches, too bad both matches were lost by the player I preferred to win :p 

 

Then tonight, one of the surprises of the tournament, German debutant Michael Unterbuchner, beat Dutchman Richard Veenstra in yet another deciding set (just like the first two quarters). Now Welshman Wayne Warren is playing absolutely brilliantly against Mark McGeeney, BDO's number one ranked player and the number two seed, I hope Wayne and his beautifully natural style keep this up and get to the semi's :cheer:

Warren with 120 for the match....T20 and then....D2 :facepalm::( 

 

McGeeney picked up the chance and made it 4-4, meaning all four quarter finals will have been decided after the maximum of 9 sets :)

And McGeeney takes the win. Damn, 4 quarter finals today and 3 of them really went against my wish, the other one sort of but I liked boh Veenstra and Unterbuchner, so that's alright.
