The opening tie of the latest Premier League night in Cardiff is complete with Mensur Suljovic capitalising on missed doubles to see off Daryl Gurney.
Gurney missed 19 darts at double and as a result The Gentle took advantage to claim a brilliant win.
‘Superchin’ started proceedings by hitting a 180 but missed three darts at double allowing Suljovic to hold throw.
Gurney squares it up at 1-1 by hitting double 16 but ‘The Gentle’ continued his march by hitting a 100 checkout.
The missed doubles continued though for Gurney with over 15 missed darts at double at 3-3.
Suljovic went into a two leg lead from parity to strike a real blow to Gurney’s ambitions.
He squandered darts at doubles which allowed Gurney a way back in but he reeled off three legs to assure himself of a point.
Gurney kept it alive at 7-5 but it was too much of a mountain to climb and Suljovic claimed the win.
