World Championship darts: Van Duijvenbode and Van Gerwen back in action on New Year’s Day | Darts

Earlier in the day in the afternoon session, Dirk van Duijvenbode already took on Gary Anderson. His former idol, which he recently defeated at the World Grand Prix.

The 28-year-old Dutchman, who also works at an aubergine farm, dealt well with the Englishman Glen Durrant, the number 12 on the placement list on Wednesday evening. Anderson, two-time world champion (2015 and 2016), won his match in the fourth round without major problems against South African Devon Petersen.

In the event of a win, Van Duijvenbode may expect a meeting with Van Gerwen in the semi-final. ‘Mighty Mike ‘ must first know how to deal with Chisnall. The eighth-placed Briton eliminated Belgian Dimitri Van den Bergh in the eighth finals. Van Gerwen placed in the last eight after a sensational victory over Joe Cullen.
