Premier League Darts: Rotterdam

Darts

180 madness! Countless 180s, and Smith is on a ten-darter! Hits double 8 with his third dart in hand to lead 5-1. Smith now needs one leg to guarantee a point.

Smith leaves himself 170. What a way to secure a point this would be! T20 - yes T20 - no Bull - no. 65 remaining, vs 150, which Whitlock can't hit (disappointment as his first treble 19 was perfect!). Smith hits Outer Bull, 20, D10 to take his points tally up to 15, and needs only one leg to make that 16.

Whitlock certainly not giving up, hitting his third 180 of the match.

18 18 Bull is THE way to take out 86! Michael Smith averages 97.75 in a 7-1 win over Whitlock, who averages 90.76.

Up next: Gurney vs Anderson. Anderson found some tip-top form last night in his 7-3 victory against Cross whereas Gurney lost to Cross last night, averaging over 91. A win here for Gurney will put him within touching distance of Anderson.

Both players are ready, Paul Hinks is ready, I'm ready and I hope you are too. Game on!

Gary's always been a slow starter. First three darts, 177 scored.

Gary's always been a slow starter. Next three darts, 180 scored. THE NINE IS ON.

Aaaand he goes low on the T20 with the next. Gurney, however, hits a 180 of his own and takes the first leg following Anderson's missed dart at the bull. Madness!! 1-0 Gurney.

Anderson takes out 70 - T10 D20 in two darts, to level things up here in Rotterdam! 1-1.
