The PDC Player’s Championship Darts final took place last night as Michael Van Gerwen took on Rob Cross for the title.
The match was poised at 7-6 to MVG, as Cross looked certain to checkout for 41 to make it 7-7, but Van Gerwen stepped up to deliver the throws of the evening, checking out for 170 to send the crowd wild.
