Three time Ladies World Champion Anastasia Dobromyslova is safely through to the second round following a routine win over Lakeside debutant Laura Turner. The Russian allowed Turner just one shot at a double as she romped to a whitewash victory over her less experienced opponent.
Backed by a vocal following from her home county of Surrey, Turner found it difficult to settle on her big stage debut, the experienced Dobromyslova pouncing on every error.
Following her exploits at the recent PDC World Championships, Anastasia seems in excellent form as she looks to claim the World Championship crown for a fourth time in her career. It was clear the nerves played a big part in proceedings for Turner, who will look to return next year for another crack at the BDO’s biggest prize.
