PROSPECTS
Dave Chisnall was a comfortable winner of Group 3 where he won all three matches whilst dropping a total of only three legs. His performances in his matches against Scott Waites and Jan Dekker were very impressive and if he manages to repeat that standard then he will be very hard to beat.

vs Damon Heta
N/A

PROSPECTS
Darren Webster claimed maximum points when topping Group 15 ahead of Bradley Brooks, Scott Baker and Andy Hamilton. His average of 88.43 on that night would need to be improved upon if he is to contend for top spot in this very tricky section of the last 32.

GEERT NENTJES

2020 PDC HOME TOUR
Route to the play-offs
Group 4 Winner – 6pts (+5)
(99.09) Mickey Mansell 4-5 Geert Nentjes (100.17)

vs Damon Heta
W0, L1
Last meeting: Damon Heta 6-3 Geert Nentjes (Feb 2020 – Players Championship)

PROSPECTS
Geert Nentjes played consistently well and won all of his three matches to finish first in Group 4. The Dutch youngster averaged 100 in his opening match against Mickey Mansell on that evening and he certainly has the potential to cause a shock or two in this group.

DAMON HETA

2020 PDC HOME TOUR
Route to the play-offs
Group 17 Winner – 4pts (+5)
(96.35) Damon Heta 5-0 Gary Blades (74.96)
(88.05) John Henderson 3-5 Damon Heta (84.23)
(81.50) Damon Heta 3-5 Krzysztof Kciuk (89.32)

N/A

vs Geert Nentjes
W1, L0
Last meeting: Damon Heta 6-3 Geert Nentjes (Feb 2020 – Players Championship)

PROSPECTS
Australia’s Damon Heta defied having to play in the middle of the night due to the time difference when successfully coming through his qualifying group. He is a much better player than his tournament average suggests and is certainly capable of being in the mix for the top spot.

THREE PICKS FROM 3 DART ANALYST

Geert Nentjes to beat Darren Webster

Nentjes played well enough when qualifying for the play-offs to suggest that there could be some value in siding with him to claim a victory against Darren Webster.

Dave Chisnall to win and hit the most 180s vs Darren Webster

Dave Chisnall’s scoring power is right up there amongst the very best in the game and adding him to hit the most 180s as well as winning the match looks to be a good option in this encounter.

Dave Chisnall to win the group

This is a tough section with pitfalls for the favourite Dave Chisnall but he looked at ease in his qualifying group and if he does relax and play to his capabilities then his scoring prowess should give him the edge.
