Race To The Indigo At The O2 (Men’s): Andy Hamilton moves into provisional seeds, Sebastian Steyer boosts World Championship debut hopes

Andy Hamilton has moved into the provisional seeds for the 2020 BDO World Championship, following his 5-0 whitewash win over Adam Smith-Neale at the World Trophy yesterday.

The former PDC World Championship finalist was clinical on the doubles, as he reeled off five straight legs to advance to the last 16, with the win seeing him knock out reigning BDO world youth champion Leighton Bennett, 13, in the provisional seeds.

Other movements in the provisional Seasonal table, after yesterday’s World Trophy first round, has seen Jim Williams become the outright third seed, Wayne Warren and Martijn Kleermaker move up to joint-fourth, and Dave Parletti drop down to sixth.

Poland’s Sebastian Steyer came through a nervy affair against Ross Montgomery, which has helped him climb five places from 26th to 21st and improve his hopes of making a World Championship debut in January.
