Maik Kuivenhoven had a good second day at the PDC Summer Series in Milton Keynes. The Dutchman beat Michael van Gerwen, among others.

For Kuivenhoven it was the second time in as many games that he managed to win against Van Gerwen, previously he also claimed victory at the beginning of March at the Players Championship in Barnsley.

“I was 5-2 ahead, I missed a few match darts and then I let him come back into the game, I make it even more exciting. That is because he is Michael van Gerwen and I am Maik Kuivenhoven ”, the Dutchman responds to AD.nl.

“Yes, Michael now knows who I am,” continues Kuivenhoven. “I also just have contact with him when we are throwing. With all Dutch people, actually. That’s nice. It is also the intention that Van Gerwen knows who I am. That I win for the second time is very cool. He is still the number one in the world. It’s a lot if you can beat such a player. ”

In any case, Kuivenhoven had a good second day at the Summer Series. In the first round he knocked out Robert Thornton and a round later he also saw off compatriot Vincent van der Voort.

After beating Van Gerwen he went down against Dave Chisnall. “He was throwing so well, I couldn’t compete with that. And I only had five minutes after my match against Van Gerwen, when I had to start again. I was still a bit lost in the first few legs. Anyway, in the end I won only three nirounds. ”
