Michael van Gerwen continued his winning streak at The Masters in Milton Keynes. The Dutchman – who won the last four editions of this event – defeated Jonny Clayton 10-5.
The three-time world champion cruised into a 3-0 lead, before Clayton reduced the deficit in leg ten for 6-4. Van Gerwen turned on his turbo after the second break and hit a 12-dart leg and a superb 11-dart leg to lead 9-5. ‘Mighty Mike’ then hit double 9 to set-up a tie with Mensur Suljovic in the quarter-finals of The Masters.
Suljovic produced a brilliant display in seeing off Simon Whitlock. ‘The Gentle’ only dropped one leg in a 10-1 victory over the Australian. Suljovic had a stunning 106 average, hit four 180’s and was 59% on his doubles.
Dave Chisnall came from behind to edge out Daryl Gurney. The Northern Irishman led 5-1 and 6-2, but missed chances to move 7-3 up. ‘Chizzy’ levelled in leg twelve, before sealing the win in the 18th leg with a well timed 101 finsh.
Stephen Bunting defeated Darren Webster after a cracker. ‘The Demolition Man’ missed one matchdart on double 11, before Bunting took the win with a terrific 86 finish on the bullseye.
