De Decker progresses
Slightly surprising Mike de Decker won the second group of the Last 32 and progressed into the semi-finals of the PDC Home Tour.
The second night of the Last 32 of the PDC Home Tour was a high-class night of darts with a surprising outcome.
Stephen Bunting headed the table after a close win over De Decker in the opening match of the night and a clear win over Glen Durrant in his second match. De Decker set in second place. He had won two close matches against Alan Tabern and Glen Durrant. In the last match of the night Bunting only needed four legs to stay ahead in the table but Tabern prevented it and won the match 6:2. On his way to the win he threw a 160 finish. So Mike de Decker celebrated the group win and progressed into the semi-finals while a disappointed Bunting - who had won both his matches with averages of over 100 - ended on the second place of the table.
With his clear win Tabern even replaced Glen Durrant on the third place of the table - the same player who had won against Tabern with a 104.4 average - the highest average of the night.
Tonight the last 32 will continue with Gary Anderson, Nick Kenny, Luke Humphries and Jamie Lewis.
