Karel Sedlacek shows Czech darts is rising

As I already argued in my first preview of the European Q-School, Czech Republic is one of the countries where darts is rising very fast. The Czech who was, according to the experts I have asked, most likely to win a tour card was Karel Sedlacek and so did Evil Charlie on day three.

Sedlacek had already impressed several players with his performances on the PDC World Championship 2019. This was probably one of the reasons Sedlacek was in the overall preview Sedlacek one of the outsiders to win a tour card. Sedlacek reached the quarter finals on day one, where he lost against Boris Krcmar from Croatia. On day two Sedlacek lost his last 16 match against Dennis Nilsson who went on to reach the final. On day three the moment many people were expecting finally came, because Sedlacek became the first ever player from the Czech Republic who won a tour card. Evil Charlie did so by beating amongst others Italian Michel Furlani, Andreas Harrysson and Daniel Larsson from Sweden before he won 5-1 against Dutchman Berry van Peer in the final.

Besides Karel Sedlacek Ondrej Kysilka is the most impressing player from the Czech Republic so far. Kysilka made it to the quarter finals on day two, where he lost 5-4 against Krzysztof Kciuk from Poland which means he has a total of 6 points on the European Q-School Order of Merit. Marek Polyak is doing a bit better each day, which meant he gained respectively 1, 2 and 3 points.

I'm a huge dartsfan and started dartfreakjacco.com, because in my opinion darts media are focusing to much on the highlights and well known players and countries of the darting world. Therefore I want to pay more attention to the dart players and countries throughout Europe.
