Michael Smith ends European Tour title drought at the Dutch Darts Championship

Michael Smith ended a five-year wait for a European Tour title with a sensational success at the 2022 Dutch Darts Championship in Zwolle, defeating Danny Noppert 8-7 in a thrilling final.

The most recent of Smith’s four previous Euro Tour titles had come at the 2017 Gibraltar Trophy, but he scooped the £25,000 top prize at the IJsselhallen to conclude a superb month.

Smith had won back-to-back Players Championship events earlier in May, and claimed victory in Newcastle to conclude the Premier League season on Thursday.

He maintained that form with a string of stunning displays in Zwolle to pick up a fifth European Tour title of his career – although he was pushed all the way by Noppert in the decider in a repeat of March’s UK Open final.

The opening four legs of Sunday’s showpiece were shared, before Smith, aided by six perfect darts, broke throw to open up a 4-2 lead.

Noppert took out 128 on the bullseye to break back, before the pair traded legs of 11 and 12 darts in a stunning five-leg spell which left Smith 7-6 in front.

A miss at tops for the title allowed Noppert in on double two to force a one-leg shoot-out, but Smith was first to a finish and checked out 104 for glory.

“It’s been five years and I’ve finally got number five on the European Tour,” said a relieved Smith.

“It caps off a really good week, with [winning in] the Premier League, and coming here I played some really good stuff.

“I managed to hold my nerve in the end with that 104 so I’m over the moon. When I was throwing for that 104 I thought he’ll check out the 132 so you’ve got to go, so luckily enough it went in.

“I fly to New York tomorrow and at the weekend it’s the US Masters so that’s the next one I want to win now.”

Smith sealed a hard-fought 7-4 Semi-Final win over Andrew Gilding with a superb 142 checkout, having earlier defeated Mervyn King in the Quarter-Finals, and he averaged 111 in an outstanding Last 16 defeat of Damon Heta.

Noppert began Sunday’s action with a narrow 6-5 comeback win over World Champion Peter Wright, taking out 126 to force a decider – which he won in 13 darts.

He also went to an 11th leg in the Quarter-Finals against Boris Krcmar, repeating the trick with a 13-darter to claim victory, and averaged 103 in a clinical 7-2 Semi-Final win over Callan Rydz.

However, he was left waiting on 132 as Smith secured the deciding leg of the final – meaning that he continues his wait for a first European Tour success after reaching his second final of 2022.

“It was a top weekend, and to reach the final again is great,” admitted Noppert, also the Austrian Open runner-up. “This crowd gave me goosebumps.”

Rydz ended the hopes of home favourite Michael van Gerwen and also defeated Simon Whitlock to reach the Semis, while Andrew Gilding continued his impressive form by seeing off Ryan Searle and Dirk van Duijvenbode to reach the Last Four.

Whitlock sealed his Quarter-Final spot in style with an astonishing 150 checkout of three bullseyes against Daniel Larsson, while a 170 checkout and a 105 average was not enough for Dave Chisnall in his Third Round loss to Van Duijvenbode.

Dutch Darts Championship 2022 | Day Three Preview and Order of Play

The eighth European Tour silverware of the season is up for grabs in Zwolle on Sunday as the final 16 vie for Dutch Darts Championship glory.

Nine seeds were sent packing on a dramatic Day Two at the IJsselhallen, including four of the top eight, opening up the top half of the draw in particular.

The afternoon session on Day Three plays host to the Third Round ties, before the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and final take place in the evening.

Home hero Michael van Gerwen steps up his quest for a fourth European Tour title of the season with a show-down against World Championship quarter-finalist Callan Rydz.

Van Gerwen put down a marker by thrashing bitter rival Jelle Klaasen 6-2 with a 104.7 average on Saturday, while Rydz followed up his First Round win over Martijn Kleermaker with a 6-1 rout of a below-par Brendan Dolan.

Dirk van Duijvenbode is also hoping to delight his home crowd by overcoming two-time European Tour event winner Dave Chisnall in what promises to be a high-scoring epic.

Chisnall averaged just shy of 106 in his win over fifth seed Jose de Sousa on Saturday, while Van Duijvenbode knocked out Mickey Mansell 6-4 with an average of 97.

World number one Peter Wright continues his pursuit of a first Euro Tour in five years when he faces UK Open champion Danny Noppert.

Wright bounced back from Thursday’s Premier League disappointment by dispatching Jermaine Wattimena 6-3 by will be demanding an improved display against the world number 12 – who averaged 98 in a high quality 6-5 win over Martin Schindler.

Michael Smith, Thursday’s Premier League Night 16 winner in Newcastle, looks to continue his superb spell of form when he faces eighth seed Damon Heta – bidding to reach his first Euro Tour final.

The opening tie of the day sees multiple Development Tour winner Ryan Meikle looking to extend his fine run and push for a World Matchplay place when he meets Croatian number one Boris Krcmar – who has already seen off Steve Lennon and Dimitri van den Bergh.

Simon Whitlock survived four match darts from Joe Cullen before edging a narrow 6-5 victory on Saturday and now faces Swedish qualifier Daniel Larsson – who has beaten Mario Vandenbogaerde and Nathan Aspinall en route to this stage.

World number 17 Ryan Searle steps up his push for a first Euro Tour crown with a tie against a resurgent Andrew Gilding – the ProTour event finalist who knocked out Krzysztof Ratajski with a 98 average in Round Two.

Mervyn King’s reward for his victory over top seed Gerwyn Price is a show-down with two-time Players Championship winner Chris Dobey – the number 16 seed looking to ignite his season.

The action gets under way from 12pm BST, with Third Round and Quarter-Final ties to be contested over the best of 11 legs, Semi-Finals best of 13 and the final best of 15.

Van Gerwen crushes Klaasen at the Dutch Darts Championship as King punishes Price

Michael van Gerwen launched his quest for a fourth European Tour title of 2022 with a 6-2 rout of rival Jelle Klaasen in the Dutch Darts Championship in Zwolle on Saturday, as Mervyn King dispatched Gerwyn Price.

Van Gerwen raised the roof with an imperious display at the Ijsselhallen, averaging 104.7 and landing six 180s to continue his remarkable record against Klaasen, despite a sensational 170 checkout from the former Lakeside Champion in the opening exchanges.

The world number three will now face Callan Rydz for a place in Sunday’s Third Round after the Newcastle star raced to a 6-1 win over a below-par Brendan Dolan earlier in the day.

An out of sorts Price was one of nine seeds to bow out of the competition on Day Two, with Mervyn King prevailing in a last-leg decider.

Following the disappointment of missing out on the Premier League Play-Offs, world number one Peter Wright returned to winning ways with a 6-3 victory over Jermaine Wattimena, producing a superb 125 checkout along the way.

The reigning World Champion will now face Danny Noppert in the Last 16 after the UK Open champion defied a ton-plus average and five 180s from Martin Schindler to prevail in a dramatic decider.

Dirk van Duijvenbode was the third Dutchman to book his place in Sunday’s Last 16 by battling past Mickey Mansell to set up a showdown against Dave Chisnall – who posted a 105.8 average in a 6-3 success over Jose de Sousa.

Thursday’s Premier League Night 16 winner Michael Smith produced a similarly eye-catching display, averaging 105.8 and landing six 180s to end the hopes of home hero Danny Jansen.

Smith is now up against in-form Damon Heta in round three, after the Australian accounted for Scott Waites in a gruelling affair.

Rob Cross’ quest for a fourth European Tour final of 2022 was curtailed by an inspired Ryan Meikle, who averaged 100 to close out a 6-2 success, in one of the left-hander’s best performances on the big stage.

Meikle will meet Boris Krcmar in Round Three, after the Croatian recovered from 5-3 down to dump out Dimitri Van den Bergh, having survived multiple match darts in the penultimate leg.

Former Dutch Masters winner Simon Whitlock survived four missed match darts en route to a 6-5 victory over Premier League semi-finalist Joe Cullen.

Whitlock takes on surprise package Daniel Larsson for a Quarter-Final spot, after the unseeded Swede produced an accomplished display on the outer ring to stun Nathan Aspinall 6-4.

Ryan Searle fired in two ton-plus finishes to defeat Ross Smith in a match dominated by missed doubles, and will now face Andrew Gilding – who continued his impressive form in Zwolle, producing a 170 checkout in a 6-4 success over Krzysztof Ratajski.

In the evening’s finale, Chris Dobey reeled off six consecutive legs to demolish Ritchie Edhouse, and the two-time major semi-finalist now meets Mervyn King on Sunday.

Dutch Darts Championship 2022 | Day Two Preview and Order of Play

The seeded stars commence their Dutch Darts Championship campaigns in Zwolle on Saturday as the Second Round action takes centre stage.

The eighth Euro Tour event of the season features 47 players battling it out for £140,000 in prize money, with 15 qualifiers having progressed through Friday’s opening round to set up a meeting with one of the 16 seeded stars.

The evening session features a stand-out clash between bitter Dutch rivals Michael van Gerwen and Jelle Klaasen on home soil.

The pair last met in the 2019/20 World Championship at Alexandra Palace, with Van Gerwen claiming a 3-1 victory before declaring he “hated” Klaasen in a post-match interview.

Klaasen came through Thursday’s Host Nation qualifier before defeating Poland’s Sebastian Białecki in Round One, while Van Gerwen is hunting down a third Euro Tour title of the season and a sixth in total in the Netherlands on the Euro Tour.

World number one Peter Wright has gone five years without a Euro Tour title and resumes his quest with a tie against home hopeful Jermaine Wattimena.

Wright was denied a Premier League play-off spot by Joe Cullen in Newcastle on Thursday and will look to bounce back this weekend with a series of strong showings.

Top seed Gerwyn Price, who also missed out on the Premier League play-offs, starts his pursuit of a second Euro Tour title of 2022 with a clash against multiple major finalist Mervyn King.

Michael Smith aims to pick up from where he left off in winning Night 16 of the Premier League 48 hours ago when he faces emerging Dutch star Danny Jansen – who defeated Vincent van der Voort 6-5 in Round One.

Fresh from securing the fourth and final qualification spot for the Premier League play-offs, Joe Cullen returns to action to face former European Champion Simon Whitlock.

Chris Dobey, the number 16 seed, opens up with a match against Ritchie Edhouse – who received a bye on Friday following the late withdrawal of Jim Williams.

Home hero Dirk van Duijvenbode looks to thrill the crowd in Zwolle by overcoming methodical Northern Irishman Mickey Mansell in a match which brings about a distinct clash of styles.

Two-time European Champion Rob Cross, who has lost in successive Euro Tour finals, begins his bid to go one better this weekend when he meets multiple Development Tour event winner Ryan Meikle.

The afternoon session kicks off with a tie between former Gibraltar Trophy winner Krzysztof Ratajski and recent ProTour event finalist Andrew Gilding.

Multiple Players Championship event winner Ryan Searle, who has recently dropped out of the world’s top 16, takes on Ross Smith – who secured his first ProTour title last season.

Damon Heta, the number eight seed and former World Series event winner, starts out against two-time BDO World Champion Scott Waites, while UK Open champion Danny Noppert faces a tricky opener against top German talent Martin Schindler.

Former World Championship quarter-finalists and ProTour winners collide as Brendan Dolan meets Callan Rydz, while former UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall takes on Swedish star Daniel Larsson.

Jose de Sousa, former Grand Slam champion and 2021 Premier League finalist, looks to recapture his top form when he meets fellow power scorer Dave Chisnall – twice a Euro Tour event winner.

Dimitri van den Bergh, who has already reached a Euro Tour final this season, faces a tough opening test against Croatia’s Boris Krcmar – who defeated Steve Lennon 6-5 with a 99 average in Round One.

The action gets under way from 12pm BST, with Second Round matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs.

Dutch Darts Championship 2022 | Day One Preview and Order of Play

The 2022 Dutch Darts Championship gets under way in Zwolle on Friday as the qualifiers collide in Round One.

The afternoon session sees former Lakeside World Champion Jelle Klaasen take on Polish teenager Sebastian Bialecki as both make their second European Tour appearances of the season.

Klaasen was one of three players to have come through Thursday’s Host Nation qualifier and was joined by Wesley Plaisier – who reached the Quarter-Finals of the German Grand Prix in April before losing out to eventual champion Luke Humphries.

Plaisier will face a resurgent Andrew Gilding on home soil, while fellow Host Nation qualifier Arjan Konterman faces Dutch compatriot and reigning UK Open champion Danny Noppert in the evening session.

Jim Williams, a former BDO world finalist and winner of a ProTour event this season, starts out against three-time Challenge Tour event winner Ritchie Edhouse.

Sweden’s Daniel Larsson meets Belgium’s Mario Vandenbogaerde, while Scotland’s Andy Boulton faces six-time Development Tour winner Ryan Meikle.

The evening session features an all-Dutch clash between crowd favourite Vincent van der Voort and new kid on the block – Danny Jansen – who has already captured a ProTour title in his debut season on the tour.

World Championship quarter-finalist Callan Rydz aims to put his below-par form on the Euro Tour behind him when he comes up against the quick-fire Martijn Kleermaker.
