Glen Durrant retained the BDO Lakeside World Championship in a 13th-set tie break – after Mark McGeeney missed two darts to beat him. The top two seeds duelled for more than three hours and a game of twists and turns decisively swung Durrant’s way in the fifth leg of the 13th set. Durrant pulled off a break of throw with a jaw-dropping 149 check out that finally broke McGeeney’s resistance. Read More

The fourth men’s quarter final also went to a deciding ninth set – and No 2 seed Mark McGeeney came through it in a tie break. “I don’t know how I won that,” said McGeeney.
