Two-time BDO World Professional Darts Championship winner Scott Waites secured his place in the last eight of the 2019 iteration of the tournament as he defeated Richard Veenstra in another high standard match.
The Dutchman took the opening set of the match, overturning a 2-0 deficit as he won the set against the throw. A 79 and 101 checkout from Waites would allow him to take the second set of the match as the momentum shifted in his favour. Waites would miss double 18 for a 156, but Veenstra couldn’t take advantage, as Waites swooped to gain the lead for the first time in the match.
A third 160 finish of the tournament saw Waites creep over the finishing line, setting up a tie with the conqueror of the number one seed, Conan Whitehead.
