The semi-final line-up is confirmed at Players Championship 3 with Michael van Gerwen against Peter Wright in a repeat of their World Championship final the top tie.
Van Gerwen himself will count himself potentially lucky to be in this position in Players Championship 3; but he did as he often does.
Chris Dobey was 5-2 up and looked to be potentially cruising to victory; but could not get over the line and Van Gerwen had a late surge and from there reeled off four consecutive legs to defeat ‘Hollywood’.
Wright on the otherhand was exceptional and as the day has gone on has just kept getting better and better. He claimed a 6-3 win over Joe Cullen with an average of 108.4 which he will hope to replicate against his rival.
The other semi-final is the other end of the coin with Jeffrey de Zwaan set to take on Ryan Searle. JDZ has often performed well on the ProTour and in his tie against Danny Noppert, he won 6-3 to defeat his fellow countryman for the first time.
For Searle, he edged past Glen Durrant to make it a trio of Premier League stars he has beaten defeating Gerwyn Price and Michael Smith as well today. Could he go all the way?
