Fast das High-Finish
Price almost got a great high finish too. He has 160 left and hits the T20 twice. That means an arrow on tops. But he forgives that. The “Hurricane” is ready at 32 and stays cool. He hits the D16 with the first arrow.
Huybrechts wants the break
At first, when Price is thrown, it looks like Huybrechts will get the break. But the Welshman throws a 180 in the transition to the finish area and then stands at 40, while the “Hurricane” still has to check 170. The Belgian can’t do that. So all the time in the world for Price and still it won’t work. He only missed tops twice. Then he hits the simple 20. Then he gets another turn and awards three arrows again. Huybrechts says thank you. He erases 32 points with 8 and D12.
What a finish from the “Hurricane”
Gerwyn Price is served. The second movement ends with a bang. The world champion has a bouncer with him, making Kim Huybrechts the first in the finish area. He has 147 points remaining. The “Iceman” is ready with 82 points to equalize in the second set. But “Hurricane” won’t let him get on. He grabs the second sentence via T19, T18 and D18. Now this is a really great game.
Both miss the high finish
In the third leg, the two players are in lockstep. Huybrechts can try his hand at 145, but missed it. The “Iceman” doesn’t make the 142. So the chance for “Hurricane” to get the sentence over 75 points. But he missed a chance on D20. Price is now at 24 remainder and cannot be asked twice. He creates the connection through the D12.
“Hurricane” attacks Price accusation
The Belgian suddenly knocks you out. He starts the second leg with three perfect darts and puts another one straight after. The world number one cannot keep up with that. Huybrechts then checks 47 points over 15 and D16. Suddenly we have an open game at a very high level.
First chance for Huybrechts
In the second set Price gives his opponent the first chance to get a leg. The “Hurricane” stands at 98 remainder, while the Welshman is not yet in the finish area. Huybrechts does not miss this opportunity. He checks over 20, T18, and D12.
The “hurricane” is not keeping up. Price hits the first 180 and is way ahead of his opponent. He is at 58 points, while Huybrechts still has to delete 298 points. Above the big 18 he puts himself tops. The first throw lands in the easy 20. But on the D10 he is then there. That was an impressive first sentence from the world champion. Average: 102.5. Checkout: 75 percent.
First perfect shot
Price plays down to 109 points due to a poor intake. He would have liked a two-dart finish. His opponent is not yet in the finish area, but suddenly he gets the first perfect shot with 171 points. The “Iceman” is not impressed by that. He throws 19, T18 and D18. This is the first high finish and a preliminary decision in this first set.
Huybrechts sets out to break
The Belgian hits a lot of triples in the first leg and is first in the finish area. At 164 he hits the 1st price twice, but only manages 100. Then the “Hurricane” has a dart on the D16, which he awards. This is Price’s chance to close his leg with 60 points. He checks over 20 and D20.
Price is booed mercilessly
The world champion walks in to the sound of “Ice Ice Baby”. Much more impressive than the music, however, are the loud boos from the audience. The Welshman takes it with a smile.
Price is in front on paper
Even in a direct comparison, the world number one is ahead. Gerwyn Price won three out of five games against Kim Huybrechts. The roles before this game are clearly assigned. The “hurricane” is by no means to be underestimated.
Huybrechts not required in the first game
His opponent today, the “Hurricane” Kim Huybrechts, faced Steve Beaton on lap two. The clear 3-1 victory belies his mediocre performance a little. The “Bronzed Adonis” did not put him under any pressure with an average of only 85 points and a double rate of 21 percent. Therefore, an 89 average and a similarly weak double rate were enough for the Belgian to win the game. But he has to improve significantly if he wants to have a chance against the world champion.
Second appearance of the world champion
For the “Iceman”, the last game at this World Cup was twelve days ago. On the first day of the World Cup, the Welshman beat Ritchie Edhouse 3-1. The result was much clearer than the course of the game. The defending champion was 1-0 behind in the sets and the second set went into the decider. But then Price increased his performance significantly and didn’t let anything burn. In the end he even had an average of 101 points.
Hello and welcome to the third round of the Darts World Cup 2022. Because the match between James Wade and Vincent van der Voort was canceled due to a positive corona test in the Dutchman, the reigning world champion Gerwyn Price and Kim Huybrechts are allowed to open today’s evening session.
