Kyle Anderson was in great form last weekend as he took down his first PDC Pro Tour-event on Saturday. ‘The Original’ got the better of Kevin Painter in the final of the 17th Players Championship; 6-2.
The Australian Ace was simply too hot to handle for all of his opponents throughout the day. Tony Newell (6-3), Nathan Aspinall (6-5), Ryan Meikle (6-1), Ronny Huybrechts (6-3), Stephen Bunting (6-3), Michael Smith (6-3) and finally Painter all fell to the three time major-finalist. ‘The Artist’ defeated Vincent van der Voort, Mervyn King and Gerwyn Price on his way to the final.
On Sunday, Dave Chisnall held off a seeminly unstoppable Richard North in the final of Players Championship 18 to take the title. ‘Chizzy’ defeated Darren Johnson (6-0), Yordi Meeuwisse (6-5), Ritchie Edhouse (6-5) and Jelle Klaasen (6-3) en route to the quarter-finals, before beating Brendan Dolan (6-5), Ryan Searle (6-2) and North (6-5) to seal the win.
