Junghans, a Swiss national, came through a tough route to defeat Wayne Warren, Francis Carragher and Dennis Olde Kalter en route. Another notable performance resulted in a Qtr Final appearance from ‘SuperMario’ Jason Marriot. Marriot, a contributor, appears to be concentrating on the BDO events this year and is improving rapidly.


Hedman, who won a seventh Swiss title after debuting in 1989, also dealt with a difficult route through the field. ‘The Heart Of Darts’ got the better of Sharon Prins, Fallon Sherrock and Laura Turner to claim a third title of the year. Remarkably Deta has also finished runner up, in this event, 6 times.
