Jackpot Relishes Nine Dart Finish

(credit: Lawrence Lustig/ PDC)

Adrian Lewis hit a sensational nine dart finish en route to the final of the European Darts Championship in Dusseldorf last night.

The world champion proved his calibre by achieving darts' holy grail for the second time on television this year.

Lewis, leading Raymond Van Barneveld 9-7 in the semi-final at the time, opened up with back to back 180's, before firing in the 141 combination at the blink of an eye to send the German crowd wild.

Despite winning a last leg decider to win his semi-final, Jackpot came up short to Taylor in the final.

"The 121 I hit to win the semi-final was actually better than the nine darter," admitted Lewis.

"Phil was fantastic and deserved to win the final, but I've had a great weekend and am full of confidence going into Dublin and beyond," he added.

The man from Stoke becomes the second player to hit a nine darter live on televsion in the space of two week, with John Part also achieving the feat at the World Matchplay.

Part picked up £10,000 for his effort, however Lewis was awarded no bonus as no reward was offered at the beginning of the event by the tournament sponsors for any player hitting a nine dart finish.

The next PDC tournament to be screened live is the Championship league, streamed exclusively online in September and October.
