Simon Whitlock came out on top in a thrilling last 16 match against Dave Chisnall, while James Wade, Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld all won through to the quarter-finals of the Ladbrokes World Championship on Thursday.
Whitlock defeated Chisnall in a dramatic tie break, with ‘The Wizard’ producing a spectacular 152 finish to save the match when it looked like his opponent was about to seal victory.
The Australian will meet Raymond van Barneveld in the last eight on Friday evening after ‘Barney’ stormed past Gary Anderson 4 – 0.
James Wade beat Vincent van der Voort by the same scoreline and will face Wez Newton on Saturday, when van Gerwen will take on reigning World Champion Adrian Lewis after defeating Colin Lloyd 4-1.
