Anderson win at first attempt
Gary Anderson - whose internet problems could be solved just in time - started with an easy 5:1 win over Dirk van Duijvenbode into the 30. night of the PDC Home Tour. Both players had a slow start into the match. In Anderson's seconds match against Dimitri van den Bergh it already went better for the Scotsman who never before had played online dart. He again won with 5:1 and was already in the pool position for the group win. The last match of the night against Kim Huybrechts brought the decision. Both players had their chances but again the winner was Gary Anderson. This time he won 5:2.
