Michael Van Gerwin saves Dimitri van den Berg from the European Darts Open | darts

Dimitri van den Berg (PDC-9), who beat home favorite Martin Schindler (PDC-49) in the 1/8 finals with an average of 105.31 per 3-darts, was 6-1 in the quarter-finals more than one size larger than the Northern Irish Josh Rock (PDC-93).

He faced England’s James Wade (PDC-5) for a place in the final, but the 11-time Premier Event winner had to withdraw due to health issues.

In the final, Michael Van Gerwin (PDC-3) initially took a 3-1 lead, but Van den Berg came by his side. Van Gerwin, the triple world champion, took another lead by 12 quarters, 10 quarters: 6-4.

Van den Berg won the second leg 11 and then missed two throws in the twelfth game to reduce his disability to one leg. Van Gerwin took the lead and won the next match, 8-5.

With an average of 102.49, Van Gerwen was clearly more accurate than Van den Bergh, who came in at 89.54. Our compatriot managed 50 percent of his throws versus Van Gerwin’s 44.4 percent.

For the Dutchman, it was his fifth European Open Darts title and his third European Tour victory of the season. Dimitri van den Berg was in a European Tour final for the first time.
