Michael van Gerwen and Daryl Gurney have pedigree of winning the Players Championship Finals and they are both into the Quarter-Finals in Minehead.
For Van Gerwen who openly criticised the conditions on the return to Minehead, it was a battle of the missed darts at double as he hit 10/25 averaging 95 with five 180's.
This compared to a 90 average, six 180's and 6/31 from Anderson who lost out in a 10-6 defeat as their rivalry continued.

A theme from the very start, Anderson missed eight darts at double in the first three legs giving Van Gerwen a 3-0 lead.
He surged away only for Anderson to come back to 8-6 down. Having five darts to make it 8-7, he missed all his chances and this proved pivotal as Van Gerwen went onto win 10-6 and will play Peter Wright tomorrow.
While 2018 winner, Daryl Gurney surged past James Wade in a brilliant display from 'Superchin' as he showed form he has displayed at times this year.
This was in a 10-7 win with a 104.3 average and 62.5% on the doubles and he will now face Ryan Searle tomorrow.
