Jamie Caven moved up into the qualifying places for this year’s Unibet European Championship after winning his first round match in the Austrian Darts Open tonight.

The 40-year-old thrashed Justin Pipe 6-1 at the Multiversum Schwechat in Vienna earlier this evening, and will now face Dave Chisnall in the last 32 tomorrow.

The win also propelled Caven provisionally into the top 32 of the order of merit for October’s European Championship, with qualification for this year’s tournament based solely on prize money won in the 10 European Tour events during the season.

Brendan Dolan currently holds the 32nd and last qualifying place, but following his 6-3 defeat to Jermaine Wattimena in Austria this afternoon it is expected he will finish the weekend out of the top 32.

Dimitri Van den Bergh and Steve Beaton were among the players to push themselves closer to the top 32 today, while Phil Taylor will look to make plenty of ground this weekend in what is his first appearance in the European Tour for two years.

The 16-time world champion gets his Austrian Darts Open campaign started tomorrow against Steve West, with the likes of Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright and Michael Smith also set to begin their campaigns in Vienna tomorrow.
