THIRD SEED Martin Adams scraped through to the second round of the BDO World Darts Championships with a narrow 3-2 win against unseeded debutant Dave Chisnall.
Adams (left), who won the title in 2007, led 2-1 in the final set but Chisnall replied with a 180 to make it 2-2. Adams then led 3-2 and 4-3 before clinching the victory with a double 12.
“That was a hard game but will give me confidence for the next round,” said Adams afterwards.
“(Double) tops was awful to me – I could not have bought the double tonight.
“Dave is a good player who took the Isle of Man Open in the spring and has had a good inter-counties season. I got what I expected – a hard game.”
In other action at Lakeside, Scotland’s Ross ’The Boss’ Montgomery beat Martin Phillips 3-1 courtesy of a 156 checkout in the third set, to book a second-round clash with former champion Ted Hankey.
Montgomery said: “The first round is always difficult. There is a lot of tension so I will look forward to my next game when hopefully there will not be as much pressure.”
Northern Irish 22-year-old Daryl Gurney saw off Garry Thompson 3-1 to set up a tie with Adams, and Martin Atkins beat Joey Ten Berge 3-2.
