Van Gerwen was a comfortable winner in the final, claiming a record seventh title. "Even on the poll on Twitter they didn't even have Michael reaching the final," mentions Petersen.

"But he just doesn't give in and give anyone an opportunity so yeah," he continues. "I think Gerwyn Price will go away and think that he baked the cake literally, put the topping on and MVG just came past and went 'I'll have that.'"
