Michael Smith nearing Michael van Gerwen's record for longest winning run in Grand Slam of Darts group stage matches
The seventeenth edition of the Grand Slam of Darts is scheduled from November 11 to 19. This event is the only ranking tournament on the PDC calendar that starts in a group system.
Each group consists of four players, who will compete against each other during the first four days of the tournament. The top two players from each group then advance to the knockout phase.
Last year's edition went down in history as the tournament in which Michael Smith won his first-ever major title. 'Bullyboy' defeated Nathan Aspinall in a one-sided final 11-5.
