Christian Kist booked his place in the BDO World Championship final today, 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 now meet Tony O'Shea in Sunday's decider after he got the better of Wesley Harms 6-5.
