(VIDEO) Van Gerwen wins large sum of prize money with title in Premier League Darts but must surrender hefty share

Michael van Gerwen won the Premier League Darts on last Thursday by defeating Michael Smith (10-8) and Gerwyn Price (11-5) during the playoffs.

With this title, 'Mighty Mike' earned a sum of 275,000 pounds in prize money. But those who think the full amount will be credited to Van Gerwen's account will be deceived.

So he was asked during the press conference what will be done with the prize money. ''Giving half to the taxes and my manager also wants to have a percentage,'' Van Gerwen said with a face of steel. Then he joked: ''And then only a small piece remains''...

Van Gerwen then states that he values the trophy more than the prize money. ''It's an afterthought. If you do well, then you get rewarded. Of course it's nice to have money and do nice things, but people who know me know that I don't really care (about the money).''
