WATCH: Van den Berg throws himself into the third round at the World Darts Championship with a fine finish on target | Darts

Dimitri van den Bergh had what to put into his World Cup darts game. Last year, he immediately went out against the relatively unknown German Florian Hempel, despite his outstanding performance. Big disappointment.

This year, our compatriot wanted to add some sparkle to his checkered season with a good World Cup. In his first stint at Alexandra Palace, “Dancing Dimi” had to throw himself in front of the Filipino Lourence Ilagan. applicable card.

Throwing a new set of arrows, Van den Bergh started well and immediately showed the difference in level with the mediocre Filipino in the first set. At no point was the score 3-0.

In the second set, Van den Berg looked on course to win a clean set again with a fast break, but Ilagan stunned “Shanghai” by finishing 120 and then breaking back. However, Van den Bergh kept his cool and entered the second set.

In the third set, our compatriot raised his level a little. With a group average of 110, he left Ilagan no chance anymore. With an unparalleled checkout of 164 and a match-arrow in the center of the target, he put the spotlight again.

Van den Berg rushes to the next round and does so with the highest average to date in a World Cup Finals: 97.2. His opponent in the third round could be Poland’s world number 18 Krzysztof Ratajski if he can get past the Netherlands’ Danny Jansen or the Philippines’ Paulo Nebreda.
