Raymond Van Barneveld

Michael van Gerwen



Welcome to another cracking night at the Arra's. I'm Harvey Waywell amongst the press pack at the Arena MK for the semi-finals and final of the 2018 Unibet Masters

First up is Raymond van Barneveld against Mensur Suljovic the conqueror of World Champion Rob Cross in the quarter finals earlier today. In the 2nd semi-final its Scot Gary Anderson trying to the first person to beat Michael van Gerwen here in Milton Keynes...EVER!

1st match in about 10-15 minutes time.

Away we go. Mensur to throw first. 1st to 11 legs remember

Comfortable hold for Suljovic to open the match

He then consolidates that by breaking Barney with a sweet 121 bull checkout !

With the help of a 177 along the way Barney hits back with a checkout of 64 and cuts the Austrian's lead in half

At his 6th attempt Barney converts double 8 and its 2-2

Barneveld moving up the gears now and he goes 3-2 up at the break

Head to head on this match up is close. RVB leads 4-3 overall
