European Tour EU Qualifier 8 Review
The second European Tour EU Qualifier for the Danish Darts Open kicked off tonight with some impressive darts along the way.
Vincent van der Voort came through a great game with Toni Alcinas and managed a 100 average marking his return to the European Tour. It was a double qualifier for VVdV who played well in both qualifiers – maybe the slap on the wrists he must have got for speaking out at the last Euro Tour spurred him on…
Ratajski pummelled Dirk Van Duijvenbode 6-1 to double qualify as well. A steady if not impressive day for The Polish Eagle, who is exactly that – steady wins the race – a lot to be learnt from the man from Poland.
The stand out match was Jose De Sousa besting German hopeful Max Hopp 6-5 in a last leg decider and finishing with 100 average. His German partner in the World Cup of Darts Martin Schindler managed to squeeze through against
Jeffrey De Zwaan who averaged 12 points less than his earlier exploits in the European Tour EU Qualifier 7.
Jose Justicia qualifies by beating Gert Nentjes 6-4 in an entralling game – a real ding dong battle – if not impressive with the averages. Jose won’t care – he’s in the Danish Darts Open.
Also former BDO World Champion Jelle Klaasen was beaten in a last leg decider by Gabriel Clemens in a 85.2 average game. A bad day at the office for Jelle Klaasen – who we know he has all the talent in the world, but the injury to his wrist has really knocked his confidence I fear – just needs a good win to get on a roll again – it wasn’t long ago that he was in the Premier League and up in the top ten of the world – so we know he can do it – love to see him back at it again – so fast and exciting.
