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.
