Fifth seed Daryl Gurney became the latest big name to be dumped out of the PDC World Darts Championship on Saturday, as Jamie Lewis evoked memories of 2017.
Lewis went all the way to the semi-finals last year, despite being a qualifier, but has enjoyed limited success since.
Gurney has become one of the sport's leading names in that time and few thought the Northern Irishman would follow the likes of Peter Wright, Mensur Suljovic and Gerwyn Price in going home before Christmas.
But that was how it turned out in their third-round clash, Lewis winning 4-3, having led 2-0 and 3-1, with Gurney throwing for the match and failing to close it out.
Earlier, another seed, the 25th-ranked Alan Norris was knocked out by Ryan Joyce, a man travelling a path similar to Lewis a year ago.
Joyce beat Simon Whitlock in the last round and came from 2-0 down to beat Norris 4-3.
There was no such drama for Dave Chisnall, though, a 4-0 winner over Kim Huybrechts.
