Stuart Kellett and Daryl Gurney in Minehead

A fantastic start for ‘KO’ Kellett in Minehead today, as he whitewashed fellow PDC professional Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright 6-0 up on the main stage in front of thousands of darts fans.

Rnd 1:  Stuart Kellett 6-0 Peter Wright

Round 2 continues on Saturday, with Stuart playing the winner of Colin Lloyd and Brian Woods.

Saturday March 9
Second Round 

Colin Lloyd 1-6 Stuart Kellett

Another great win for Stuart – and a minimum £2,000 banked for the weekend already, which has meant 2013 has started with a bang now!  The Cheshire ace hit finishes of 138, 120 and 103 in taking the game’s first four legs, before punishing three missed doubles from Lloyd to win the fifth on double 16. Lloyd, who had landed two earlier 180s, hit a 174 and tops to get off the mark in the sixth, but missed two darts at double eight in the next as Kellett sealed the win on double two.

Third Round:  Dave Chisnall 5-6 Stuart Kellett

A magnificent scalp for KO, beating one of THE form players in 2012.  That see’s him bag at least £3,000, and he’ll take to the big stage again during the evening final session.  Kellett was 5-3 down before he came back, and in the process climbs to a minimum 59th place in order of merit and above Mark Dudbridge.

Quarter-Finals:  Stuart Kellett 6-1 Robert Thornton

Stuart puts in a massive performance and a 93.7 ave to win into the semi-finals!  Great finishing was too much for The Thorn, and it’s onwards and upwards for KO.  A huge £5,000 minimum won now!

Semi-Finals:  Stuart Kellett (93.47) 6 (11) 3 (93.7) Andy Hamilton

Stuarts top form continues, with a win against the Premier league star Andy ‘The Hammer’ Hamilton.  He hit a 122 checkout to take the final leg – some darts.  The final now beckons, and a cool £10,000 is in the bag!  That’s the world championship place for 2014 already secured with that money on his rankings!

Final:  Stuart Kellett 4-6 John Part

Stuart just misses out in the final to 3x world champion John Part.  An amazing weekend for KO, and a real confidence builder.  It means PDC fans will be seeing more of him on their TVs now!   The run see’s Stuart march up to 53rd in the order of merit, onwards and upwards!  Check the videos page for some of the action and post match interview.
