Van Gerwen gains revenge over King, Price sees off under par Petersen at European Darts Grand Prix

Mighty Mike averaged 94 with his doubling his strong point. He hit 50% to reach the Last 16 with King hitting 1/6 as he fell to the World Number One.

Gerwyn Price is through after seeing off a below par Devon Petersen. The Welshman hit an average of 95.5 and hit a 150 checkout as he saw off ‘The African Warrior’ who previously had the better of ‘The Iceman’ including during his maiden European Tour triumph.
