Tournament favourite Scott Waites came through his second-round clash at the BDO World Championship with some to spare.

Having seen the top two seeds crash out already, third-seeded Waites needed to show his class and he did, seeing off Geert de Vos 4-1.

Seventh seed Jan Dekker also won, beating Garry Thompson 4-3, while Paul Jennings whitewashed Wexford's Jason Cullen 4-0.

Richie George, son of former tournament favourite Bobby George, continued his progress through the tournament as he beat Jimmy Hendriks 4-2.
