Gary Anderson ended Chris Dobey’s hopes of a dream run in the World Series finale, as he ran out a 6-1 winner in the second round on Saturday night.

Dobey struggled to get going early on against his mentor, and failed to register a single leg before the interval – losing five on the bounce.

The Bedlington thrower managed to take one leg after the break, but ended up falling to a 6-1 defeat.

Anderson opened up the game with a 13 darter against Dobey to hold throw, powering in two 140s in the process.

In the second leg Dobey looked to have settled in to the game, hitting a 180 to leave himself on a score of 61.

But the Bedlington thrower bust his score, which opened the door for Anderson who took out 110 to break the throw.

Some power scoring and big checkouts – which included a 130 checkout – from Anderson saw him take the next three legs before the break to lead 5-0.

Coming back after the interval, Dobey looked a different man throwing in a 180 to take control of the sixth leg, which ended in him holding on double ten.

With both players scoring poor at the start of leg seven, Anderson then fired in a 180 to leave him on 101.

He took out 101, and ended the Englishman’s hopes of progressing into round three.

The Scotsman averaged 103.57 in the match and proved clinical on the doubles with a 75 percent checkout rate.
