    Suljovic looks so uncomfortable when he throws. Looks off balance.

    His grip on the dart is even stranger. He holds it in between the middle of his fingers, rather than using the end part of his fingers like most players do.

    Well played Mensur Suljovic, was great tonight in playing the board.

    It really does look unnatural but it seems to work for him. I feel a bit sorry for Denis Ovens as he only lives about 15 minutes away from me, he was totally outclassed

    Denis can look back on a good championships under the circumstances - he was ill tonight and ill last week and things didnt work for him tonight. Suljovics had a great tournament, eliminating two seeds from the World's is an achievement, and when one of those is or should I say was favourite to reach the final from his half of the draw it makes it all the better. As someone said, this is what makes the tournament so special, its the surprises, the shocks the unexpected results that make it intriguing, if we had the top 16 all go through to the third round it would seem a bit boring? There was many a time tonight when I expected Mensur to close up, especially when Wade levelled the match at 2 sets apiece but huge credit. I reckon that Mensur may really think he's got a chance of making the quarter-finals.

    I love this tournament, there is always a few surprises and I think there may be one or two more shocks yet. I would agree any other player who lost a 2-1 lead against Wade would have surely crumbled, but Sujolvic to his credit held his nerve in that.

    Well Colin Osbourne, despite some shocking misses, he still beat Jamie Caven 4-0 and it looks like Gary Anderson could be doing the same to Dennis Priestley, he's just made two big finishes.

    That one leg which Osbourne won without hitting a treble for about 20 darts was incredible. He was scoring ok though.

    As for this Anderson game, the averages are very good. Priestley has actually played very well.

    Priestley takes the fifth set! 3-2 down now. Both averaging above 100 with Anderson on 107 now (was over 110 until he seemed to lose it over the last two legs), it's a great game.

    This is an amazing match. Priestley has shown absolutely incredible determination to come back from 3-0 to 3-2, and Anderson is looking a bit shaky. It is by far the highest standard match of the whole tournament so far.

    Priestley breaks! Amazed he got another chance at the double. Anderson really does seem shaky!

    Both on D1. Anderson took it 2-2 now, I want Priestley to take it into a decider!

    The standard dropped at the end, had Anderson hit that bull to win 4-1 then it would have finished with a 110 vs 100 average, but they dropped significantly.

    One of the best matches ever that Priestley and Anderson match, that's what the World Championships all about, you wouldn't believe that Priestley is 60. Mervyn King looks in trouble against the Pie Man here, one leg away from losing the match. Barney's up later against McDine.

    Priestley's last game I wonder? He said he wasnt playing any pro tour events and that he'd only play while he was in the 32, he qualified by right this time, i'd hate him not to be there anymore. He's brilliant, he's one player who nearly always gives taylor a run for his money, they played at the matchplay and it went to the tiebreak. You'd have had to fancy Priestley to win 4-3 if it had gone 3-3.

    Real ding dong game on here. King always underachieves in this tournament though

    Looking ahead, I think the semi final lineup will be Taylor vs Whitlock and Jenkins vs Anderson. With James Wade going out, Jenkins does have a very good chance of having a good run in the tournament and making the semi final for the first time in his career.
