Max Hopp has done the unthinkable in Saarbrucken denying Michael Smith a fifth European Tour title to claim his first in front of a home crowd at the German Darts Open 2018.

‘The Maximiser’ has been in the darting doldrums for quite some time and has proved a lot of doubters wrong this weekend. Once again Hopp hit a 121 checkout to win just like he did vs Rob Cross in the semi-finals.

Max averaged 95 in the final hitting 4x 180’s and coming from 7-6 down on the verge of defeat to force a decider and break the throw to win. It is a watershed moment for the German who has had a whole countries’ expectations on his shoulders in his career; tonight he delivered.
