2023 Betfred World Matchplay Day Six Review.

World Matchplay now moves to a longer format with the Quarter Finals  a best of 31.

Rockstar Hoping To Raise The Roof In Blackpool

With the top four in the world no longer in the 2023 Betfred World Matchplay, Gurney and Cullen will see this as a great opportunity to add to their trophy cabinet.

Joe Cullen will be looking to follow on from the form he showed in defeating Gerwyn Price on Tuesday evening when he takes on the rejuvenated Daryl Gurney.

Rockstar needed extra time to defeat Gerwyn Price, and it was a little easier in round one when he defeated Mike De Decker.

For Daryl Gurney he’s had to defeat two World Champions, Rob Cross and Gary Anderson, just to get to the Quarter Finals.

Daryl Gurney return to form on the big stage is a worrying sign for the rest of the field.

Best Friends Meet In Last Eight

Chris Dobey and Nathan Aspinall good friends, meet in the final eight of the 2023 Betfred World Matchplay.

Nathan Aspinall who certainly feels at home on the Blackpool stage and after his first round win over Krzysztof Ratajski and followed up it up with an extra time win over Danny Noppert.

Aspinall three wins away from Matchplay glory

The battling qualities of Nathan Aspinall have never been questioned and rightfully so with that late win over Noppie he feel confident that this is his year to pick up the Phil Taylor Trophy.

Chris Dobey will be looking to get one step closer to lifting his second TV Title of the year.

Hollywood will be looking to follow up on his win over World Champion Michael Smith, and if he can get over line he will be only two games away from adding to 2023 Masters title.
