THE PLAYERS

GABRIEL PASCARU

  • Gabriel Pascaru is making history at this tournament by becoming the first player from Romania to play in a World Darts Championship.
  • Pascaru’s successes to date have come in minor ranking tournaments and this is his first match on the main stage in a televised tournament.

JUSTIN HOOD

  • Somerset’s Justin Hood is not a regular competitor on the BDO circuit but did reach the last 32 at the World Masters in 2019.
  • Hood is making his World Championship debut having earned his spot via the play-offs where he notably defeated former finalist Jeff Smith.

THE PREDICTION

It is hard to know what to expect from two debutants who are playing the biggest match of their darting life. Just getting here is a huge achievement for the pair and nerves are likely to be on display. Hood should benefit from having more support in the crowd and he might just edge this one.
