The first semi-final at the Dutch Darts Masters in Zwolle is confirmed with Michael van Gerwen and Gerwyn Price set to face off in what is bound to be a mouth-watering clash.
Van Gerwen edged out Dave Chisnall for the tenth time in a row despite not being at his best once again. He hit three 180’s, a high checkout of 164 and wasn’t at his best on the doubles with 37.5 percent but it was enough to get over the line against the St Helens ace who only converted 22 percent of his doubles despite five 180’s and a 99 average.

Price on the other hand similar to his tie against Brendan Dolan previously built up a massive lead to nearly relinquish it coming through a 6-3 winner.
‘The Iceman’ was excellent though averaging 104 and on the way he smashed in seven 180’s. He started in particular strongly at the start of legs going six darts into the perfect leg multiple times but he couldn’t go further.
He will take on ‘Mighty Mike’ in the semi-finals who he keeps getting better against, can the Welshman finally get one over on the home hero in Zwolle?
