Nico Kurz

Nico Kurz Is Out:

The German darts surprise Nico Kurz from Nidderau left the World Cup in London. In the third round, the 22-year-old had a final stop.

The Darts World Championship in London is finally over for the German professionals. Debutant Nico Kurz was the last to drop out in the third round on Monday.

The Nidderauer lost 2: 4 against England's Luke Humphries at the beginning of the afternoon session at Alexandra Palace.

Previously, Kurz, who is still without a nickname, had defeated the Englishmen James Wilson and Joe Cullen.

After the end of Idstein's Max Hopp (3rd round), Kurz missed the jump into the round of 16 that will start after Christmas. In the history of the tournament, there was still no German in the round of 16.

Not a full-time professional in 2020 either:

The youngster Kurz has only been playing darts on the side so far, he actually works as an industrial mechanic.

According to his own statements, the 22-year-old does not want to become a full-time professional in 2020 either.

Nico Kurz missed the historic round of 16. He has to give up against Luke Humphries after a tough fight.

Against Luke Humphries, Nico Kurz missed the historic entry into the round of 16 in the time-honoured Alexandra Palace.

The 22-year-old, who was the only remaining German in the field after the defeats of Gabriel Clemens and Max Hopp, gave the number 46 in the world rankings a close fight, which he ultimately lost with 2: 4 sets.

He was already in the lead with 2-1 sets, a third surprise after the victories against the English James Wilson and Joe Cullen (3-1 each) seemed possible.

But Humphries increased, while Kurz missed the targets too often. After the game, Kurz proved to be a fair loser and paid tribute to his opponent's performance.

"He was a little bit better. He used the moments he had directly to make up. So he didn't give me a chance and therefore deservedly won." In addition to the defeat, the positive aspects predominated in the young German.

Despite moving into the third round, which is a huge success for the young German, he does not want to think too much about the future when it comes to a possible professional career in darts.

"It is still going on normally with me. I will continue to work and then let's see where the journey with the darts goes."

After all, this year's darts adventure means a nice extra income. His coup at the World Cup earned him £ 25,000 in prize money.

In the round of 16, Humphries will face Belgian Kim Huybrechts. (Schedule and all results of the Darts World Cup 2020)
