Jeff Smith and Danny Lauby were amongst the final six players to seal places in the William Hill North American Championship and US Darts Masters as the qualifiers concluded on Wednesday.

Smith defeated David Cameron 4-2 in their Qualifier Three final as he sealed his spot on stage at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

The Canadian ace – a former Lakeside Championship finalist and PDC Tour Card Holder – won his opening four games without dropping a leg as he defeated Tim Mitchell, Darryl Norman, Derek Hanley and Shawn Burt.

He then overcame Willy Walker and Ross Snook with a 4-2 margin of victory before repeating that scoreline against Cameron.

Lauby secured his big-stage debut as he follows in the footsteps of father Dan Lauby Snr – a four-time PDC World Championship qualifier between 1999-2004 – by winning Qualifier Four later on Wednesday.

Lauby was a 4-3 winner in his final against Joseph Huffman, who headed the four players who sealed their spot from the Qualifiers’ Order of Merit.

Cameron, Snook and Dawson Murschell were the other qualifiers to complete the eight players who progress to compete in Thursday’s North American Championship and the US Darts Masters on Friday and Saturday.
