Klaasen – who won his second PDC title in Wigan – kept his superb run of results going as he romped to victory over fan favourite Petersen, landing an 11-darter in the process as the South African struggled to recapture the form that saw him defeat Peter Wright on day two.
Robert Thornton will be Klaasen’s next opponent after he ensured it would not be a case of third time lucky for two-time European Darts Open runner-up Simon Whitlock, winning 6-3.
With the match evenly posied at 3-3, Thornton found another gear as he reeled of the final three legs, closing out the win with a classy 12-dart leg as he expertly checked out 121.
Klaasen’s Dutch counterpart Michael van Gerwen also enjoyed a comprehensive victory as he raced to a 6-1 victory against Johnny Haines in the opening game of the final day.
After a below-par performance on day two, van Gerwen started slowly again against Swindon-thrower Haines as he was broken in the opening leg of the match. But the Dutchman would quickly regain his form as he took the next six legs without reply, finishing with a 101.47 average and ending in style with a spectacular 11-dart leg.
Van Gerwen will now face Alan Norris, who is into his first European Tour quarter-final after edging out Mervyn King 6-5 in a deciding leg. After an even start to the match, Norris landed his highest checkout of the match (127) to open up a 4-2 lead.
King would respond well though as he took the next three legs to move 5-4 in front, before Norris kicked off with six perfect darts in the penultimate leg as he forced a decider where he would land tops to break the throw and seal victory.
Fifth seed Brendan Dolan produced a solid display to Terry Jenkins 6-4 in the third game of the afternoon.
Jenkins started superbly as he stormed into a 3-1 lead, including a brilliant 11-darter in the second leg as he kicked off with back-to-back maximums. Dolan would hit back in style though as he found his form as he took the following four legs before swiftly wrapping up the win on tops.
Dolan will take on Kim Huybrechts in the last eight after the Belgian defeated International Darts Open winner Michael Smith 6-4 in Dusseldorf. There was nothing to separate the pair in the early exchanges before Huybrechts kicked on to open up a two leg lead at 5-3 before wrapping up the victory with a 13-darter two legs later.
James Wade would win by the same scoreline as he ended Mark Webster's impressive run in Dusseldorf.
There was never more than a leg in the match until the final leg as the pair both struggled to pull clear, with Wade landing brilliant 138 and 121 finishes on his way to victory as he continued his strong form of late having won last weekend's Players Championship event in Wigan.
Wade will now face-off with Vincent van der Voort, who enjoyed a much simpler passage into the quarter-finals as he comprehensively defeated Dutch Darts Masters runner-up Justin Pipe 6-1.
Van der Voort was always on top as he raced into a 4-0 lead against the tenth seed, checking out 127 in the process, before beginning with a 180 in the final leg and finishing on double 16.
As for professional game of dart, we recommend tungsten dart, tungsten is an extremely dense metal. It is also very durable, so a high-density tungsten dart resists wear and the knurling will last much longer.
