Hamilton v Huybrechts: Hurricane has got darts in a spin

Nobody could have confidently predicted this quarter-final match-up

Despite Andy Hamilton’s involvement in the quarter-finals of the World Championships coming as a surprise, he hasn’t really produced any great upsets in individual matches along the way. His win over Dave Chisnall was against the odds, but prior to the tournament starting I don’t think anyone would have seen The Hammer beating Chizzy as a major shock.

Kim Huybrechts, on the other hand, has twice defied the odds – against Brendan Dolan and Paul Nicholson – and also seen off the potentially tricky opposition of James Richardson. Nobody could have confidently predicted this quarter-final match-up prior to the tournament’s start, but it is definitely the Belgian who is the biggest surprise package of them all.

And we may see him on this stage for many years to come. The Hurricane, so far this tournament, has displayed all the attributes of a top class player. When his opponents slip up, he punishes them, and he recognises the importance of a 140.

There is a lot riding on this particular match for the 26-year-old as I believe victory could see his name thrown into the ring for a Premier League wildcard, but I doubt that will phase him. He didn’t fold when Paul Nicholson took the opening set in their last-16 match and at the odds I think he is the value bet to beat a battling Hamilton.
