Joe Cullen has not had a happy period in recent weeks, as he has only won one game in the last five Player Championships. Despite this, he was the big favorite against Chris Dobey and he immediately took a break lead. Dobey eventually tied the score again and it was tied at 7-7. ‘The Rockstar’ managed to break the next leg and that turned out to be the final decision. He secured a spot in the next round with a 10-8 victory.
Smith’s sprint too powerful
For Michael Smith, the World Matchplay started against Ryan Searle. After it was 3-3, a sprint by ‘Bully Boy’ brought the decision by winning four legs in a row. ‘Heavy Metal’ still managed to get a few legs, but he couldn’t prevent the win from going to his compatriot with a 10-7 victory.
No size on the ‘Special One’
José de Sousa has been in excellent shape for months, including a place in the Premier League. He also started well against Gabriel Clemens, because at the start of the first break he immediately took a 5-0 lead. In the end, it was not a whitewash for the ‘German Giant’ as he eventually managed to get two more legs, but nevertheless he went down very hard with 10-2.
