Benito van de Pas booked his place in the quarter-finals of the Unibet World Grand Prix for the second successive year after a convincing 3-0 win over Gerwyn Price.
The Dutchman rushed out of the blocks by winning the opening two sets without reply, hitting a maximum and two 177s on the way to taking a 2-0 lead in sets.
The third set was not quite as convincing for van de Pas, as Price battled back and missed a dart for the set in the final leg of the match before the world number 14 took out 48 on tops to progress.
Van de Pas averaged 95.13 and hit 11 out of 16 attempts at his opening doubles and nine out of 14 attempts at finishing doubles as he comfortably made it through to Thursday’s quarter-finals.
“I’m happy with my performance tonight,” van de Pas said. “I don’t think I had a leg with no score on the starts so that is really important.
“If I carry on finishing like that, this could be a very good week for me but I’m not looking any further ahead than tomorrow’s match.”
