Michael van Gerwen won the European Darts Matchplay.
Once again it was time for the European Tour in this weekend. This time it was in Germany, where the European Darts Matchplay was being held.
At the first day there was some smaller surprises and Darius Labanauskas got safely through with a 6-2 victory.
Labanauskas then had to face Stephen Bunting at the evening session at saturday. Despite being ahead a couple of times, Stephen took advantage of his routine and seccured the victory by 6-5. Saturday also saw players as Rob Cross and Michael Smith being eliminated.
But the biggest story at Saturday was made by Michael van Gerwen. After five years and one day, the European Tour saw it’s first nine darter, since Ross Smith made a perfect leg in 2013.
On Sunday one favourite after another got eliminated, so it came as a surprise, that William O’Connor was ready for the final against Michael van Gerwen. MvG, as always, proved to strong for the Irishman and won the game by 8-2.
Michael van Gerwen has now won 15 titles in the 2018.
