The semi-final line up for UK Open Qualifier 3 is now confirmed with Michael Smith finally defeating Michael van Gerwen to end his run. Also joining him includes John Henderson who rocked his way through a Quarter-Final with Jamie Hughes. This means we could get a first time ranking winner come the end of the day.

Smith will face David Pallett who doesn’t have his tour card after not winning it back at Q-School but is a familiar name to those involved in Darts. This great run has assured the Shropshire man that he will be at the UK Open and now he will want to win his first ranking title on top of that.

In the other semi-final John Henderson will take on Zoran Lerchbacher. Henderson showed his good form as of late in defeating one of the performers of the weekend in Jamie Hughes 6-3 and will take on the Austrian, Zoran Lerchbacher who reached his first Pro Tour final last year.

Last Eight
Michael Smith 6 | 1 Michael van Gerwen
Joe Cullen 4 | 6 David Pallett
Jamie Hughes 3 | 6 John Henderson
James Wilson 1 | 6 Zoran Lerchbacher
