Jaymes Monte reflects on an enthralling Lakeside World Championships so far and picks out his best bet from quarter-finals day at Frimley Green...

"Although we know Adams can up his game, I feel that it is the Scotsman who goes into the match on the front foot and has the potential to cause another
upset."

We may still be waiting for the tournament's first 100-plus three-dart average, but there has certainly been no shortage of drama at Lakesideover the past six days.

Tony O'Shea and Scott Mitchell took us all the way to a sudden death shoot-out leg in the final set of their first round match, then three ofthe eight second round matches went to a deciding set.

Peter Sejwani stole the headlines in round one when he beat number one seed James Wilson, while Canadian qualifier Jeff Smith has now added Gary Robson to Wesley Harms on his list of seeded scalps.

My story of the tournament, however, is the success of Ross 'The Boss' Montgomery who passed the second round stage at
Lakeside for the very first time in his career with an emphatic 4-0 win over Scott Waites last night.

I highlighted ahead of The Boss' first round match that he had some extra incentive, if any were needed, this week following disparaging comments made on Twitter by a senior PDC figure.

But I don't think even he could have anticipated the manner in which he dismissed the former world champion in round two.
The 97.29 average may not have been the biggest of the round but to produce that against a player of Waites' quality, while simultaneously achieving something you have never before accomplished in your career, deserves great credit.

Next up for Montgomery is a quarter-final match against Mr BDO, Martin Adams. Wolfie was solid enough in a 4-0 win over Jim Widmayer, but in reality was never challenged by the American who averaged just 78.51. Adams himself only averaged 89.37 and, although we know Adams can up his game, I feel that it is the Scotsman who goes into the match on the front foot and has the potential to cause another upset.
