THE PLAYERS

JOE CHANEY

  • Joe Chaney is returning to the BDO World Championship for the second time having lost 3-0 to Danny Noppert on his debut two years ago.
  • Chaney enjoyed a notable run to the quarters at the 2019 World Trophy where he lost 6-5 against the eventual champion Jim Williams.

BEN HAZEL

  • World Championship debutant Ben Hazel came through a large field to win one of the four spots on offer at the qualifiers in October.
  • Hazel has never had a significant run in a major tournament and this is by far the biggest match of his darting career so far.

THE PREDICTION

Chaney did not impress on his debut two years ago when he lost 3-0 vs Danny Noppert but the American qualifier is a better player than that and his run to the quarters at the 2019 World Trophy backs that up. How Hazel copes with the occasion is unknown but the signs are that Chaney will prevail.
