German pilgripper Michael Unterbuchner added another chapter to his story at Grand Slam of Darts and entered the quarterfinals!
The 30-year-old wrote with his 10th-6th gala performance against his favorite James Wade Darts story.
Never before has a German arrived at Grand Slam so far. Already Landsberger's knockout round was a feeling, against superstar Wade he still put it on top.
"It's amazing, I never thought I could beat James Wade, he played so amazing in the latest games, it's crazy!" Said an overwhelmed sub-book after his victory over the two-time champion.

The subbook must rebook flight
Before the match, "T-Rex", as he then called an overtodox throw motion because of shoulder problems at that time, did not much hope to continue writing his personal story.
This also underlines the fact that he already booked the return flight to Germany for Friday. "It's not a problem, I'll just book a new one," Unterbuchner said calmly.
Equally as close to Unterbuchner, which already denounced its knockout stage as a "surprise", even in the quarterfinals. (DATA CENTER: Schedule for Grand Slam of Darts)
Wade slides away quickly
With a gala performance, Landsberger left the world's sixth place no chance. The first leg Wade was able to decide even without big problems, then T-Rex began to appear.
Unterbuchner won four legs in a row, Wade broke in the third and fifth leg and pulled fast at 4: 1. Even though Unterbuchner had few chances, gave the opportunity to return to the Wade match, no time.
"I try to play my game and have fun", Unterbuchner had before the match SPORT1Interview announced. "T-Rex" did not release, broke the british in the eleventh and in the 13th leg again.
For Wade, who previously won the World Series Finals and European Darts Championship, the first defeat was after 13 unbeaten matches in front of TV cameras.
