Van de Pas causes another upset

December 28, 2014 10:44:45 UK

Dave Chisnall was beaten by Benito van de Pas on Saturday.

Dutchman Benito van de Pas produced another big shock at this year’s PDC World Darts Championship by eliminating Dave Chisnall in the second round with a 4-2 victory.

The 21-year-old, who is making his debut in the event this year, sent home the number 25 seed Paul Nicholson in the opening round and has now secured a spot in the last 16, where he will face Robert Thornton. Van de Pas is 4.00 to win this encounter, with Thornton 1.25.

Van de Pas went into the fourth set of the match trailing 1-2 but won the next three consecutive sets to finish with an average of 91.44, which was enough to secure the game.

Scotsman Thornton was first up onto the oche on Saturday afternoon and wasted no time as he breezed past Ronnie Baxter 4-0. The number nine seed hit seven 180s and would have finished with a better average of 93.78 had he not missed 27 doubles.

Thornton has never made it into the quarter-finals of the PDC World Darts Championship but will have the perfect opportunity to do so now he faces an unseeded opponent for a spot in the last eight. He is into 26.00 in the outright market to win the tournament.

Sixteen-time world champion Phil Taylor is back in action tonight when he takes on Mark Webster in the second game of the evening schedule. He is 1.071 to win, with Webster 10.00.

The Power was beaten by the Welshman in the quarter-finals of the 2011 tournament when he was vying for three consecutive titles in this competition.

Taylor failed to drop a set in his opening round match with Jyhan Artut and was one of only two players to average over 100 in his first round encounter. Webster, on the other hand, defeated Ron Meulenkamp 3-1 to make it into the post-Christmas stage of the tournament.
