World Championship Day 11 Preview - Afternoon Session

More third round action today.

The first match of the afternoon is the quick throwing Vincent van der Voort against Chris Dobey. Van der Voort looked at his best in the last round as he swept past Darren Webster. Dobey will need to make sure that doesn't happen to him, as it can be easy to get caught up with the fast throwing rhythm. Dobey has also played well in the tournament, so he will fancy his chances. This should be close and as in many cases, finishing will be key to finding a winner.

The second game is another one that is very evenly matched. It features two of the most experienced players in the tournament as Brendan Dolan plays Mervyn King. Dolan has been playing close to his best and looks to have timed his World Championship run well. King continues to play good consistent darts and he will want to keep this way. Really hard to call a winner here and whoever makes the least mistakes will win.

The final match of the afternoon could be tense as James Wade (pic) plays Keegan Brown. Statisically, Wade is the better player, but I think this game will be a lot about mental strength. In round two Wade was chastised for his unsporting behaviour as he berated Seigo Asada during the match. Brown was similarly criticised by his round two opponent Jelle Klaasen, as Brown continually celebrated big shots and finishes. So this game will be about who can keep a cool head and focus on playing good darts. Wade may probably edge this as he has played very well at the close of the season,but Brown has also showed his talent. Could be fireworks!
