Michael van Gerwen completes HappyBet German Darts Masters treble with victory in Jena

Michael van Gerwen claimed a third HappyBet German Darts Masters title in a row as he defeated Jelle Klaasen 6-2 in the final in Jena.

The world number one had been in scintillating form throughout the Easter weekend, averaging more than 100 in each of his four games en route to the final, which culminated in a demolition job of his Dutch rival in the decider.

Van Gerwen kicked off with an 11-darter as he took out 93 for a 1-0 lead, before punishing three misses from Klaasen to double his advantage with a break of throw, before tops moved him halfway to further European Tour glory.

Klaasen got off the mark in the fourth leg as he capitalised on two missed darts at double 12 from the top seed to take out 80 and get his first leg on the board.

The Dutch duo then traded legs before van Gerwen checked out 100 to complete another 11-darter and move to the brink of victory.

The 27-year-old landed his third 180 of the final to start leg eight, before hitting tops to scoop the £25,000 top prize and his 15th European Tour title.

“It’s lovely,” said van Gerwen. “I think I played phenomenally here in Jena – I had two games of 110 average and one game of 108, you can’t really ask for any more.

“When you play this well it feels great, but I’ve worked really hard for this and make a lot of sacrifices, so I’m really glad it paid off.

“I love what I do and I love to perform for the great crowds like we do here in Germany.”

After a 110 average in his second round destruction of John Michael on Sunday, the reigning PDC world champion improved on this with a 110.78 average and some clinical finishing as he beat Cristo Reyes to reach the quarter-finals.

Next he faced old nemesis Raymond van Barneveld, but showed no signs of nerves as he stormed into the last four with another impressive 105.23 average, and a clinical 75 per cent checkout rate – including two huge checkouts of 114 and 164.

Standing in his way of a place in the final was the in-form Simon Whitlock, but the Australian could do little more than watch as he struggled to contain the Dutch ace in a 6-2 defeat.

And van Gerwen was again at his best as he fired in three 180s and another 107.33 average against Klaasen to take his tournament average up to 106, as he secured his 15th European Tour title, bouncing back from his loss to Peter Wright in the recent HappyBet German Darts Championship final in perfect fashion.

The European Tour continues next weekend with the HappyBet German Darts Open in Saarbrucken, with van Gerwen looking to continue his form among a 48-player field in the third of a dozen £135,000 events being held this year.

Joe Cullen claims maiden PDC Pro Tour title with victory in Players Championship 8

Joe Cullen won his first PDC Pro Tour title as he claimed victory in Players Championship 8 in Barnsley today, beating Daryl Gurney 6-5 in the final.

The Yorkshireman had won three Development Tour events in 2011 and also reached three previous ranking finals, but he finally got over the line at senior level this evening.

“I’m so happy,” Cullen said. “Daryl missed nothing so I had to take my chances.

“I always believe I can win. I used to think I could rely on my natural talent but now I’m putting the work in.

“Now if I fall I can look at it and think I’ve worked for it in the right way.”

Cullen began the day by surviving two match darts against Yordi Meeuwisse in the first round, before going on to win in a deciding leg, and 6-3 wins over Robert Owen, Steve Beaton and John Michael booked the 27-year-old a place in the quarter-finals.

A 6-4 victory against James Richardson continued his good run, with the 2016 UK Open quarter-finalist repeating the scoreline in a closely-contested semi-final with Mervyn King.

The final saw Cullen come up against Gurney, who had won his maiden PDC title in yesterday’s Players Championship 7, and he would prove a difficult obstacle as he chased back-to-back titles.

Gurney firstly saw off David Pallett, Ronnie Baxter and Kirk Shepherd, before knocking out Premier League player Dave Chisnall 6-4 to reach the last eight.

The Northern Irishman then defeated Stuart Kellett and James Wade, both 6-4, to progress into the final.

The final began with Cullen firing in a maximum before hitting seven perfect darts in the third leg to take a 2-1 lead.

A 14-dart leg then followed as Cullen broke the Gurney throw before holding to move 4-1 up.

The pair then traded holds of throw, with Cullen moving to within a leg of the match at 5-3, however an 11-dart break from Gurney kept the contest alive.

Gurney held his throw to take the match to a deciding leg, where he then missed the bullseye to claim a second title in as many days.

Cullen stepped in to hit double four to claim the £10,000 prize and his maiden Pro Tour title.

The day also saw world number five Wade produced a strong showing as he reached the semi-finals for the first time since February, alongside King, who battled through to the last four for a second successive Sunday.

Gerwyn Price followed up a run to Saturday’s semi-finals by reaching the quarter-finals 24 hours later, alongside Robbie Green, Richardson and Kellett, who enjoyed his best run on the Pro Tour for nearly three years.

The Easter weekend sees the PDC European Tour return with the HappyBet German Darts Masters from April 15-17 in Jena, Germany.

Michael van Gerwen lands stunning 138 checkout to pip James Wade in Premier League thriller

By Alex Moss
7 APRIL 2017 • 3:01PM

Michael van Gerwen produced a moment of magic to snatch victory against James Wade as the Betway Premier League visited Dublin’s 3Arena last night.

The reigning Premier League champion maintained his spot at the top of the table with a 7-5 win over Wade in a high-quality encounter.

Wade opened up a 4-2 lead with the help of three 14-darters and a 13-dart leg, before van Gerwen reeled off four straight legs, sparked by his second 12-darter of the game, to move 6-4 in front.

A 12-darter in reply from Wade forced a deciding leg, with the 2009 Premier League champion opening the decider with scores of 140, 140 and 180 to leave 41 as he chased a draw.

But van Gerwen followed a score of 171 with a stunning 138 finish to claim both points.

The world number one ended the game with a season’s best 113.62 three-dart average to Wade’s impressive 110.82, and the world champion said: “A good game comes from two players and James was phenomenal, and I want to give all credit to him.

“It was probably James’ highest average in a long time, so I’m really glad I won it in the end. After I was 4-2 down I knew I had to do something extra if I was going to win the game, and I did that.

“Somehow I managed to do the 171 and the 138 when he was on 41 after nine darters. That takes a lot of capability, pressure and confidence to do that. I’m really glad I won this game and I needed it.”

Phil Taylor moved into the top four as he claimed a fine 7-3 victory over Raymond van Barneveld, in what could have been the great rivals’ final encounter as they met in front of 9,000 fans at the 3Arena.

After the pair traded 121 bullseye checkouts in the early stages, Taylor pulled away into a 4-1 lead by taking out 85 and a 13-darter.

Van Barneveld checked out 124 as he reduced his arrears to 4-3, but he was crucially unable to level as a pair of double 16 finishes pushed Taylor clear again, before the six-time Premier League champion took out 66 to seal victory.

“It’s two points in the bag and it keeps me up there in the league table,” said Taylor. “I’m still enjoying it and still trying to get into the play-offs.

“Raymond’s playing some great darts and he always seems to be there, and over the years we’ve had so many great battles. Playing him in Dublin was extra special.”

Van Barneveld later returned to the stage to defeat Wade 7-2, as the left-hander suffered a second defeat on his 34th birthday.

After Wade took the opening leg, van Barneveld hit two 14-darters to move 3-1 up and also hit legs of 13 and 12 darts in pulling clear with four straight legs to claim the points.

“I was never close to winning the game against Phil but I had to focus and prepare for the game with James because I knew there was another two points to get,” said van Barneveld.

“Phil played an awesome game and his finishing was fantastic, so fair play to him, he beat me fair and square and it made it hard for me but I’m happy to get the two points against James.”

Peter Wright came from 6-3 down to claim a draw with Dave Chisnall, who ended a three-game losing run in a game where he landed seven 180s and twice set up potential nine darters.

After Chisnall opened with an 11-darter, legs of 14 and 13 darts from Wright moved him 2-1 up, but Chisnall too two of the next three legs before moving back ahead with a thrilling 145 finish in leg seven.

He also took the next two legs to secure a minimum of a point at 6-3, but Wright clawed back the next two legs to force a decider and traded maximums with his rivals before finishing 64 to snatch a point.

“Obviously I wanted the two points but I didn’t play exceptionally tonight and Dave punished me,” said Wright. “When I was 6-3 down I knew I only had to break Dave’s throw once and I did that, and it’s a good point.

“Dave’s shown the crowd just how well he can play and if he carries on playing the way he is then he’s going to take plenty more points off the guys in the run-up to the finals.”

Chisnall admitted: “I was happy to get the point but also disappointed not to get the two points because I was in control when I went 6-3 up and I slackened off.

“A big thing for me was keeping the darts straight and fluent, and I did that tonight. Peter’s one of the best in the world, a class act, and I knew he would come back at me so a point’s good.”

Adrian Lewis drew level on 11 points in the league table with Gary Anderson as he avenged last week’s defeat to the Scot with a 7-3 victory.

The pair shared the opening four legs, but Lewis then punished a string of missed doubles from his rival o take five of the next six as he secured the win.

“It’s massive,” said Lewis. “It’s all about belief and this showed you can go up there and beat anyone if you believe in yourself.

“Gary beat me last week but every game’s different and I know that if I turn up, I’ve got a good chance and I did the job tonight.

“I knew that if Gary won I was four points behind the top four so it was crucial. Everybody’s trying to get into the top four and I did the job tonight.”

The Premier League continues at the Echo Arena in Liverpool next Thursday, with Anderson competing twice on the night, while Lewis takes on van Barneveld and Taylor plays Wade.

Michael van Gerwen thrashes Peter Wright 6-1 to capture Players Championship 6 title

By Alex Moss
2 APRIL 2017 • 8:39PM

Michael van Gerwen won his first Players Championship title of the year after beating Peter Wright 6-1 in the final of Players Championship 6 in Milton Keynes today.

The world number one lost out to Wright in the HappyBet German Darts Championship final last weekend, and was also the runner-up in Players Championship 5 yesterday to Adrian Lewis.

However, the world champion went all the way today to scoop the £10,000 top prize, with wins over Mickey Mansell, Andy Jenkins, Ron Meulenkamp and Cristo Reyes moving him into the quarter-finals, where he got the better of Kim Huybrechts 6-2.

The Dutchman then dropped only one leg in a comfortable semi-final victory against Mervyn King, before repeating the scoreline in the final against Wright.

Wright’s only leg of the final came in the fifth leg with a 136 checkout, but the world number three had no answer as van Gerwen powered home finishes of 129 and 153 in the next two legs to wrap up a 6-1 win in the final.

Speaking to PDCTV-HD after winning the final, van Gerwen said: “I was really glad (to win this tournament).

“We didn’t perform fantastic, especially in the beginning of this game, but a win is a win.

“It was a long day today and I made it and I played well today in patches, and I’m happy with my performance.

“You always want to win, it doesn’t matter who it is (against), and I want to perform always 200 per cent.

“I was quite dominant all day today and to be fair Cristo had a small chance, but I had a fantastic 90 finish, 18, double 18, double 18, same as what I did in the final, treble 19, double 18, double 18.

“That’s a strong point for me and I know I can do things at the right moments and I’m really glad.

“It’s also really nice because it’s my mum’s birthday and it’s a nice present for her.”

Wright pocketed £6,000 as runner-up as he continued his impressive start to the year, defeating Terry Roach, Jimmy Hendriks and David Pallett in his early games, before whitewashing Steve Beaton 6-0 in the last 16.

The Scot then overcame both Richard North and Mensur Suljovic with 6-2 wins to book his place in the final, before coming unstuck against van Gerwen in the decider.

Suljovic’s run to the semi-finals was the Austrian’s best performance since he was runner-up in the Unibet European Championship last October, as he knocked out world number two Gary Anderson and in-form Australian Simon Whitlock on the day.

He was joined in the last four by King, a Players Championship runner-up last month, who overcame Raymond van Barneveld, Kevin Painter and Darren Webster on his route to the semi-finals.

Hampshire-born North, a PDC tour card winner at Q-School in January, reached his second successive Players Championship quarter-final to cap a superb weekend, before losing out to Wright.

North was joined in the quarter-finals by Whitlock, van Barneveld and Huybrechts, who returned to competition in Milton Keynes after missing Thursday’s Betway Premier League swansong to be with his mother during her final hours.

Sunday’s tournament also saw Ricky Williams land his first competitive nine darter, although the achievement came during a first round defeat to Jeffrey de Graaf.

The next Players Championship double-header will be held next weekend (April 8-9) at the Barnsley Metrodome, where a further £150,000 in prize money will be on offer across the two days,

Yorkshire thrash Cambridgeshire 25-11 to close in on British Inter-Counties Championship Premier Division title

By Alex Moss
2 APRIL 2017 • 6:23PM

Yorkshire moved to within touching distance of retaining the British Inter-Counties Championship Premier Division title after thrashing Cambridgeshire 25-11 this weekend.

The defending champions went into the penultimate weekend of the season with a healthy 30-point lead at the top of the table, and they stretched their advantage over second place Lancashire to 33 points with this comfortable win.

Yorkshire captain Brian Dawson takes his side to nearest title rivals Lancashire on the final weekend of the season in three weeks’ time knowing they only need to win a handful of games to clinch the trophy.

Elsewhere this weekend, Lancashire kept their faint title hopes alive with a 22-14 victory away at Nottinghamshire.

Nottinghamshire, who went into the weekend in sixth place, dropped two places to eighth in the table and are now just one place above the bottom two going into the final weekend on April 22-23.

Warwickshire climbed up to third in the table with a hard fought 19-17 win away at bottom side Essex, who are now 17 points adrift of safety with one game to go.

Lincolnshire put themselves in contention for a top three finish after winning a tight contest 19-17 at Cheshire left them just three points behind third place Warwickshire.

Devon moved up one place to seventh in the table and eased their relegation fears with a 20-16 victory at home to fellow strugglers Glamorgan.

Second bottom Glamorgan, who went into this weekend three points adrift of safety, saw the gap between themselves and eight spot, now occupied by Nottinghamshire, rise to nine points.

Title rivals Yorkshire and Lancashire both hold 12-6 overnight leads in penultimate fixtures of the season

1 APRIL 2017 • 10:14PM

Title rivals Yorkshire and Lancashire both built up 12-6 overnight leads in their penultimate British Inter-Counties Championship Premier Division fixtures of the season today.

Defending champions Yorkshire are 12-6 ahead in their home clash with third place Cambridgeshire, while their nearest title challenges Lancashire lead by the same scoreline overnight in their trip to mid-table Nottinghamshire.

Yorkshire remain 30 points clear at the top heading into tomorrow’s final day of action this weekend, and they can still wrap up the title on Sunday if they pick up 10 more points overall than Lancashire.

Elsewhere, Lincolnshire are set to climb up the table as they hold an 11-7 lead overnight in their away fixture at fourth place Cheshire.

Seventh place Lincolnshire have provisionally climbed up one place into sixth spot, but they could move even higher if they can finish the job tomorrow.

Bottom side Essex and fifth place Warwickshire shared the points on offer today as they are level at 9-9 heading into tomorrow’s final day.

The two teams directly above Essex, Devon and Glamorgan, are also involved in a close contest, with hosts Devon narrowly 10-8 up on Glamorgan after the first day.

Adrian Lewis ends 14-month ranking title drought with victory in Players Championship 5 at Arena MK

Adrian Lewis clinched his first PDC ranking title in more than a year as he beat Dave Chisnall 6-2 to win Players Championship 5 at Arena MK in Milton Keynes today.

The two-time world champion fired in a 164 checkout as he stormed into a 3-0 lead, before Chisnall hit back with a 122 checkout to close the gap.

With a 5-2 lead and throwing for the title, Lewis kicked off with eight perfect darts before missing double 12 to win the tournament in style.

The world number four eventually wrapped up the title on double one to secure the £10,000 top prize and his first ranking title since February of 2016.

Lewis’ best performance of the day came in a stunning 6-5 victory over Michael van Gerwen in the semi-finals, a game which saw an incredible 13 180s and another miss at double 12 for a nine darter – this time from van Gerwen.

The Stoke ace began the day with a narrow 6-5 win over Benito van de Pas, before beating Andy Hamilton and Justin Pipe to reach the last 16.

A 6-3 victory over Peter Jacques followed, before another last-leg success, this time over Richard North – who was enjoying one of his best runs on the PDC Pro Tour – put Lewis through to the semi-finals.

Chisnall’s run to the final – his first of 2017 – saw him narrowly edge past Ritchie Edhouse 6-5 in the opening round, before getting the better of Andy Jenkins and John Henderson to advance to the last 16.

There he defeated Mickey Mansell before whitewashing Mark Webster to reach the semi-finals.

A dominant 6-3 victory over Alan Norris meant Chisnall booked his place in his first final of the season, where he was beaten by Lewis.

It was another strong run for world number one van Gerwen on the floor, but his wait for a first Players Championship title in 2017 goes on, having now lost out in the semi-final stage on two occasions.

Norris’ good form continued, with the Players Championship 1 winner, who also made the last four at the Coral UK Open, reaching the semi-finals in Milton Keynes.

The PDC Pro Tour continues on Sunday, with another £75,000 prize fund up for grabs as Players Championship 6 gets underway at Arena MK.

Raymond van Barneveld makes it four wins in a row as Premier League visits Cardiff

By Alex Moss
31 MARCH 2017 • 10:28AM

Raymond van Barneveld chalked up his fourth consecutive win in the Betway Premier League as he swept past James Wade 7-2 in Cardiff last night, where Michael van Gerwen, Gary Anderson and Phil Taylor also picked up victories.

Van Barneveld, the 2014 Premier League champion, has climbed into the top four with his recent run of form, beating the world’s top two players van Gerwen and Anderson, and he continued that with a ruthless display against Wade.

The Dutchman limited Wade to just one dart at a double as he won the opening five legs without reply, before the 2009 Premier League champion finished 36 and 70 to take two of the next three.

However, van Barneveld, who had claimed his sixth leg with an excellent 12-darter, took the ninth on double seven to secure another two points in his bid to secure a spot in the play-offs.

“That’s four wins on the trot so I’m very happy,” said van Barneveld. “It’s so tight in the league table so I had to focus and you have to play well against everyone.

“James didn’t play as well as he could and I was surprised at that but I’m happy with the win.”

Reigning Premier League champion van Gerwen moved back to the top of the table with an impressive 7-1 win over Dave Chisnall, averaging 104.25 and hitting 50 per cent of his darts at a double.

The world number one had lost his first game of the season last week against van Barneveld, but returned to winning ways as he defied five 180s from Chisnall with a dominant display.

“I had to play well tonight and I’m happy that I did,” said van Gerwen. “The pressure was on me because I want to be back on top of the table where I belong and where I’ve worked hard for.

“When you lose a game, like last week, you’re upset but tonight I enjoyed it again. I’m a happy man and I’m already looking forward to next week.”

Two-time Premier League winner Anderson fired in finishes of 143 and 170 in a superb 7-3 win over Adrian Lewis, averaging 107 as he came from 2-1 down to clinch his third win in four games.

“I didn’t think the performance was as good as the average, but I’ll take it!” said Anderson. “There was some good scores and some bad scores – the 170 felt like it came from nowhere and I took out the 143 too.

“We all want to get into the play-offs. When the tournament starts you don’t want to be in the bottom two, and once you get past tonight it’s a fight for the top four and everyone’s trying for it.”

Six-time Premier League champion Taylor also had to come from behind before he saw off Jelle Klaasen 7-5 in a deciding leg.

Klaasen – who had been eliminated before his ninth league match – raced into an early 4-1 lead, before Taylor, aided by an 11-darter, turned the match around to claim his second win on the spin.

“It’s another two points for me and they could all prove crucial at the end of the season,” said Taylor. “It could prove the difference for getting into the play-offs – if I’d lost I think I’d have struggled to qualify.

“I think Jelle’s injury affected him, at the beginning he was fairing well but during the game he was struggling and he wasn’t the same player. Fair play to him, it must be very frustrating but he’s battled on.”

The night had seen just eight players in action, with Kim Huybrechts – who had already been eliminated – absent to remain in Belgium with his terminally ill mother, meaning that Peter Wright was awarded a 7-0 victory in his intended opponent’s absence.

“All our thoughts are with Kim and his family,” said Wright, who made an appearance on stage in front of the sell-out Cardiff crowd before the event and signed autographs for the fans.

“You have a fantastic crowd in Cardiff, the atmosphere is amazing and I’m gutted that I’m not playing. I was looking forward to trying to win tonight but unfortunately I’ve got to get back on the practice board.”

The Premier League continues with the visit to Dublin’s 3Arena next Thursday, as the second phase of the season begins with five games.
