Our first events since covid-19 shut down the world has ended – here is the highlights.
The group of events started at Thursday, when the first Pro Tour of 2021 was played. The tournament was won by Daniel Larsson who beat Marko Kantele in the final by 6-3.
Madars Razma promised revenge, as he lost against Daniel Larsson in the semifinal at Thursday, and the revenge was sweet. Madars Razma managed to beat the Swede by 6-3 in the final of the Pro Tour 2.
And then Danish history were made, as Andreas Toft Jørgensen won the Pro Tour 3 after a 6-4 victory against Darius Labanauskas in the final. It was the first Danish title since 2016.
At Saturday it almost looked like Andreas Toft Jørgensen had started a trend, as Niels Heinsøe made it to the final in the Pro Tour 4 – but in the final Marko Kantele proved to strong and won 6-2.
The fifth event, the Pro Tour 5, was then won by Madars Razma, as he once again won against Daniel Larsson in the final.
After the five Pro Tour events it was concluded, that the three Danish spots for the Nordic Darts Masters would go to Andreas Toft Jørgensen, Niels Heinsøe and Ivan Springborg – and with a win for Johan Engström in the qualifier at Sunday, the field of eight players from our region was settled.
