The semi-final line-up has been confirmed at Players Championship 15 with Michael van Gerwen set to face Glen Durrant in their first meeting in the PDC and Darius Labanauskas to play Ron Meulenkamp.
Van Gerwen played a thrilling tie against Chris Dobey but as usual the last leg decider came to the aid of the World Number One as he edged out ‘Hollywood’.
Durrant similarly came through a close tie against Michael Smith but stands on the verge of potentially a second PDC title.
Both players in the bottom half are unseeded but both have reached semi-finals already on the tour already this year, Labanauskas in particular making back-to-back semi-finals after seeing off Ryan Meikle with ease.
Meulenkamp had a tougher assignment against Ian White who is of course in terrific form as of late and is well known for his exploits on the ProTour. It is ‘Lucky D’ versus ‘The Bomb’ though with a big opportunity awaiting.
