Lourence Ilagan has added to his tally of PDC Asian Tour events winning his second of the year and his sixth overall in the seventh event of the year in Taipei.
Ilagan defeated his World Cup of Darts teammate Noel Malicdem in the final hitting a 110 average and a magical nine dart finish along the way which was the second in history of the tour.
