Dave Chisnall and James Wade were eliminated from the 2018 PDC World Darts Championship at the Alexandra Palace on Sunday.

Chisnall was the eighth seed but did not win a set again Vincent van Der Voort who breezed through to the next stage of the competition 3-0.

Van Der Voort hit six 180s in his win but fell just short of his first 100+ average in the tournament as he ended the game on 98.90.

The Dutchman will now face Steve Beaton in the second round on 22nd December. He is 4/6 to win that tie and make it through to the last 16 for the third time in the last four years.

Former world youth champion Keegan Brown was responsible for eliminating Wade in one of the best games of this year's championship so far. The pair had to settle the game in a final set shootout where Brown held his nerve to prevail 3-1.

Brown will now have the opportunity to make it through to the third round for the first time when he faces Zoran Lerchbacher next week. The man from Durham is 8/15 to come out on top in that contest.

In Monday night's session, Daryl Gurney begins his campaign against Ronny Huybrechts. The number four seed will be looking to end what has been a memorable season on a high. A couple of months ago he was successful in his first PDC major when he won the World Grand Prix.

Mensur Suljovic is also one of the top seeds in action on Monday and he faces the 2004 runner-up Kevin Painter and can be backed at 1/6 to overcome the Artist who is making his 17th appearance in the competition.
