THE PLAYERS

GARY ROBSON

  • Gary Robson has plenty of World Championship experience having made his debut in 2001, but he has only made it through to the quarter-finals on two occasions.
  • Robson lost to David Cameron at this stage of the tournament 12 months ago and he’s only progressed further than the last 32 in two of his last seven World Championship appearances.

BEN HAZEL

  • World Championship debutant Ben Hazel defeated American Joe Chaney in an epic prelim round match to set-up this match against Robson.
  • Hazel got over the line in a last-set decider against Chaney in a match where the averages were extremely close with Hazel’s match average being 86.22 compared to Chaney’s 86.27.

THE PREDICTION

Gary Robson’s record at the BDO World Championship is not good for a player who has often been seeded at the tournament. A change of venue might bring a change of fortune for Big Robbo this year, but he must successfully negotiate a match against debutant Ben Hazel who seems capable of pushing Robson all the way in what could be a very close encounter.
