Schedule and preview Saturday evening session 2022 Dutch Darts Championship including Van Gerwen-Klaasen and Smith-Jansen

It is both a session tonight at the Dutch Darts Championship which will see the big names involved as well as the main Dutch stars aiming to reach the final day.

One match will take all the headlines with no love lost between Michael van Gerwen and Jelle Klaasen with issues off the oche meaning their friendship is very much over and adds a narrative every time they play.

But one that ordinarily gets MVG fired up to produce his best and he will look to kick into life again in a weekend where Luke Humphries won't be there to stop him.

Gerwyn Price will aim to revitalise his European Tour season when he faces Mervyn King. Last time he was seen in these tournaments was his fracas with Adrian Lewis in Prague and with King known to show his feelings, he could be on the receiving end tonight if his celebrations aren't to the King's satisfaction.

Other ties feature Peter Wright aiming for once to silence a crowd who will be behind Jermaine Wattimena who was animated against Rene Eidams and won't be afraid to get the crowd onside in his new home of Zwolle.

Dirk van Duijvenbode will also be animated. Last week against Nathan Rafferty, he exited nearly as quick as his walk-on but will another Northern Irishman prove the foil for him as he faces the Clonoe Cyclone, Mickey Mansell.

While the legion of Dutch fans will adorn the shirt of the greatest hair in darts, 'The Mullet' instead of Menum Power now as Danny Jansen will aim to topple Michael Smith fresh off his Premier League Darts weekly win.

Also in action is Joe Cullen facing Simon Whitlock, Rob Cross taking on Ryan Meikle and Chris Dobey will face Ritchie Edhouse in a top tungsten treat for your Saturday night.
