Michael Unterbuchner stormed into the quarter-finals of the BDO World Professional Darts Championship with a spectacular 4-0 victory over former Wales captain Wayne Warren. This is the heaviest recorded victory on the Lakeside stage for the German, who will be looking to go one step further this time around.
Two ton plus checkouts in the opening set of the match got the ball rolling for the German star, but the best was still to come for ‘T-Rex’. His average lifted well over the 90 mark as he extended his advantage of Warren, the Welshman struggling to gain traction after an excellent opening display against Mark Layton on Sunday evening.
A clean sweep in the third set put the finishing line in sight for Unterbuchner, and the win would be confirmed after just four sets of play. A magical 130 checkout on double five sealing Unterbuchner’s place in the quarter-finals for the second consecutive year as he set up a tie with Willem Mandigers on Friday.
