BRENDAN DOLAN cruised through to round two of the William Hill World Darts Championship with a 3-0 victory over Yuanjun Liu.

Playing in his 11th consecutive World Championship, Dolan rattled off the first two sets without allowing his opponent an attempt at a double.

Dolan was in ruthless mood, landing a 141 checkout before Chinese Qualifier Liu got his first and only leg on the board.

However, it turned out to be a short reprieve for Liu as Dolan took the final two legs to book a round two date with Joe Cullen.
