Anastasia Dobromyslova beats Laura Turner to make BDO quarter-finals

Anastasia Dobromyslova is into the BDO championship quarter-finals.

Dobromyslova, one of two women alongside Lisa Ashton to star at the World Darts Championship, comprehensively beat Laura Turner on Monday.

Dobromyslova won 2-0 without even giving Turner a dart at a double.

She is a three-time BDO champion and, last year, was the runner-up at Lakeside.

Previously, Dobromyslova had fallen at the first hurdle of the World Darts Championship, losing to Ryan Joyce in the opening round. But her presence, alongside Ashton, was a significant moment for the Ally Pally tournament. Ashton beat Dobromyslova in last year's BDO final.

Michael Unterbuchner reached the Grand Slam quarter-finals

Former Grand Slam quarter-finalist Michael Unterbuchner battled to a 3-2 first-round win over Australia's Justin Thompson. Jim Williams beat Roger Janssen 3-2 in a close game, while Dean Reynolds saw off Daniel Day 3-1.

In the morning session, Canadian David Cameron beat former PDC Premier League participant Andy Hamilton 3-0 in what many would consider an upset.

Oliver Ferenc also booked his place in the first round after he defeated Ryan Hogarth 3-1 despite missing six darts at the doubles in the final set while Dutch player Willem Mandigers beat Paul Hogan 3-0.
