THE LOWDOWN

JAMES WADE

  • In-form James Wade won all three of his group matches and is full of confidence as he seeks to win a third consecutive televised tournament.

  • Wade is currently averaging 102.09 for the tournament - second only to Van Gerwen - and boasts the highest tournament checkout % of 57.69%.

MICHAEL UNTERBUCHNER

  • Surprise package Unterbuchner is one of only two BDO players to reach the knockout phase and he has acquitted himself well on the big stage.

  • The German has turned things around superbly after a shaky start to the tournament where he averaged just 78.78 in defeat to Gary Anderson.

THE PREDICTION

Few would have predicted that the relatively unknown Unterbuchner would escape his group but the BDO player has grown into the tournament after some early nerves. This is likely as far as he goes though as Wade is playing as well as anyone right now with excellent scoring and clinical finishing.
