Superchin glides past Wade to reach the last eight

Daryl Gurney booked his place in the Quarter-Finals of the BWIN Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton after he completed an impressive 10-2 victory over James Wade. The Northern-Irishman was always in the driving seat as he raced into a 4-1 lead which included two 14-darters as he looked to race to the finishing line. After that first session, Gurney carried on where he left off as he won another two legs on-the-spin as he moved into a 7-1 lead. Gurney’s finishing and maximum-hitting was bang on point with 50% on the doubles and five maximums in the first eight legs whilst averaging just below the 100 mark. Wade broke the World number four’s throw as he looked to try a fightback, but Gurney showed his class and composure as he fired in a 14-darter as he picked out D20 for an 8-2 advantage moving into the second interval. Gurney once more backed that up with a 16-darter as he moved a leg from victory, he narrowly missed a dart at the bull for a 130 and a 12-darter but he was allowed to mop up the miss and the finished line was moving ever closer. ‘Superchin’ completed the rout as he picked out D1 after the pair missed a total of 13 darts between them to win the leg. Despite the scoreline, It wasn’t a Daryl Gurney in full throttle, but nonetheless it was a fantastic result as he booked his place in yet another PDC major Quarter-Final as he fires in seven maximums and a 3-dart average of 94.62. Gurney will face either Phil Taylor or Darren Webster in the last eight.
