Last night saw Raymond van Barneveld come close to one of darts' greatest ever upsets before he eventually beat Germany's Bernd Roith 10-7 in the second round, while Phil Taylor remains in the hunt for a third successive title in Dinslaken.
Roith, a caterer from Tuebingen in Germany who overcame Denis Ovens in the first round on his televised debut, set up the prospect of an incredible victory over the world number two when finishes of 101 and 141 helped him into a 7-5 lead.
However, van Barneveld regained his composure to punished three misses from Roith to level in the 14th leg, before completing a run of five successive legs to set up a quarter-final with Wayne Jones on Sunday.
"This is one of the hardest battles I've had in my career," said van Barneveld. "I didn't underestimate him but he played superbly and I am very relieved to come through it."
Reigning champion Taylor, meanwhile, progressed to the quarter-finals in more comfortable fashion with a 10-5 defeat of Andy Smith, who held the world number one for eight legs before succumbing to a typical charge from the Stoke great.
Taylor will now meet Mark Walsh in the quarters, after the number eight seed overcame Jelle Klaasen 10-6 earlier on Saturday.
Colin Lloyd produced a superb display to defeat Michael van Gerwen 10-6, hitting a 101 average in seeing off the Dutch youngster in a thriller.
Lloyd will take on Ronnie Baxter on Sunday afternoon, with the Blackpool man defeating local rival Wes Newton 10-9 earlier in the day.
Jamie Caven won through to his second televised quarter-final with a 10-6 defeat of Wales' Barrie Bates, and he now faces world number five Terry Jenkins on Sunday.
Jenkins had earned his last eight place with a 10-8 defeat of Simon Whitlock, while Jones set up his clash with van Barneveld by seeing off Robert Thornton 10-4.
