THE PLAYERS

RICHARD VEENSTRA

  • Former BDO World Championship semi-finalist Richard Veenstra has never lost in the opening round in his four previous appearances at the tournament.
  • Three of Veenstra’s previous four matches at this stage of the BDO World Championship have gone the distance with the Dutchman winning them all.

JUSTIN HOOD

  • Justin Hood defeated Romania’s Gabriel Pascaru 3-1 on Monday afternoon in his first ever match at the BDO World Championship.
  • Hood looked completely at ease on the big stage, producing a good all-round performance with an average of 90.24 in overcoming his opponent.

THE PREDICTION

Richard Veenstra has had to come through some tough opening round matches at the World Championship previously and it looks as though he will be pushed all the way here against debutant Justin Hood, who impressed in his prelim round win. Veenstra might just have the quality to get over the line, but a safer option might be over 6.5 180s in the match, which looks to be a good possibility if this goes the distance.
