Darts: Daily victory for Clayton: Darts series from Price ends in Berlin

Around 10,000 fans celebrate the Darts Premier League in the Berlin Arena. The favorites around world champion Smith and permanent winner Price experience a difficult evening this time.

The Welsh Jonny Clayton reported back in the Darts Prime Minister League and ended Gerwyn Price’s winning streak in Berlin. “The Ferret” won on Thursday evening first against Price (6:4) and then in the final against England’s world champion Michael Smith (6:4). “It was not an easy ride. It is a great feeling to win on this stage again,” said Clayton after a strong evening. The atmosphere was “absolutely fantastic”, reported the day’s winner.

Most recently, the former rugby professional Price won two Premier League evenings in one piece and the European Tour tournament in Leverkusen. World champion Smith almost managed the perfect game, the so-called nine-darter, in Berlin. In the semifinals, only one millimeter was missing on the double-12.

The former world champions Michael van Gerwen (Netherlands) and Peter Wright (Scotland) had to accept bitter defeats. While van Gerwen leads the table after beating Clayton 5:6, “Snakebite” Wright (3:6 against Price) is almost hopelessly behind. With just two points, he is in the last place. “I still think I can make the playoffs,” said the bird of paradise. So far, Wright has lost nine out of ten Premier League games.

The approximately 10,000 spectators celebrated a darts party in the arena at the Ostbahnhof. “This is absolutely wonderful. It feels like at home, unbelievable,” said Martin Schindler as the second best German professional. Schindler was on stage as a guest after the quarter -finals. The native of Strausberger did not want to formulate clear goals for 2023. “If you put too much pressure on yourself, you can hardly cope with it. If you publicly call out goals and do not achieve them, you will be punished.”
