Christian Kist to face Tony O"Shea in BDO darts final

Out for the count! Kist to face O'Shea in final after stunning Hankey with comeback win

Christian Kist booked his place in
the BDO World Championship final, coming from 5-3 down to beat Ted
Hankey 6-5 at Frimley Green.

The 25-year-old Dutchman sealed his
first final appearance as the two-time champion missed out.

Hankey
missed a shot at the bull for victory when 5-4 in front, but he lost his
concentration as he complained of a draft on stage, and Kist nipped in
to clean up.

Kist will meet Tony O'Shea on Sunday, after he got the better of Wesley Harms 6-5.

The board had to be changed in an occasionally scrappy game, with the players suffering a combined total of 23 bounce outs.

O'Shea held his nerve, though, and
said afterwards: 'It is unbelievable, I am so overwhelmed. That young
lad (Harms) has got a great future.

'It was he who suggested that we change the board because I had suffered so many bounce-outs. He is a real gentleman.'
