Michael van Gerwen is through to the final of the World Grand Prix breezing past Chris Dobey as he aims to become back-to-back champion on the Emerald Isle.
It is a sixth final for Van Gerwen who will face a familiar foe in Dave Chisnall who he has a brilliant record against. The question is: Will Chizzy finally get one over the World Number One or will it be a third major title of the year for Mighty Mike?
MVG claimed the first set in double quick time against Dobey 3-1 and it was an early break for him. Dobey looked to come back in the next set with him going 2-0 up in legs but it was stunning darts from Van Gerwen who produced a 156 checkout to seal it. He continued his tear and went one set away recovering once again to win it 3-2.
He didn’t have more issues getting through though with him producing a whitewash final set with an 82 checkout sealing it with his first match dart and not giving the Bedlington ace another chance to get back into the contest.
