Live Darts on Saturday: US Darts Masters 2017 Day Two preview and order of play

The inaugural US Masters draws to an unmissable climax on Saturday as six PDC seeds and two North American hopefuls vie to hit the jackpot in Las Vegas.

The opening day of the season's third World Series event saw the majority of the elite names safely make it through to the Quarter-Finals, while two home hopefuls produced memorable upsets.

Dawson Murschell, the 21-year-old Canadian qualifier, survived six match darts from James Wade in the deciding leg before holding his nerve to seal a sensational scalp.

The young gun is rewarded with a Quarter-Final show-down against UK Open runner-up Gerwyn Price - who battled past North American Champion Willard Bruguier 6-4.

Scotland-born Dave Richardson, who now resides in Canada, sent home Germany's Max Hopp in the opening round, but now faces the toughest test of his career as he prepares to meet man of the moment Michael van Gerwen.

World Champion MVG set his stall out with a 105 average in thrashing Chris White 6-0 on Friday and is firmly in pursuit of a tenth World Series crown.

World number two Gary Anderson looks to avenge his 8-1 thrashing at the hands of Raymond van Barneveld in Shanghai last week when the two multiple World Champions renew their rivalry.

A new-look Van Barneveld ran riot in China as he punished a below-par Anderson, but after averaging 102 to Barney's 88 on Friday, 'The Flying Scotsman' will be determined to get one over on the Dutch legend.

Elsewhere, UK Open champion Peter Wright takes on World Series debutant Daryl Gurney in a potentially mouth-watering affair.

Wright has won the last seven consecutive meetings between the two, including an 11-5 triumph in the Semi-Finals of the UK Open in Minehead en route to his maiden major title back in March.

Gurney hit six 180s in his 6-2 win over Dennis Sayre and will be out to utilise that ruthless scoring power against the colourful world number three.

The action gets underway from 8pm BST, with all matches contested over the best of 15 legs at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas.
