MVG's MASTER CLASS AT THE SLAM
By John Lowe, Nov 13 2015 09:30AM
Michael Van Gerwen produced a master class of darts at the Singha Beer Grand Slam against Steve Beaten, he won the match 10-2 a flattering score line that suggests Beaten did not play well, but that couldn't be further from the truth, MVG missed hardly anything and it was the 7th leg before Beaten got on the score card and he needed a 116 finish to do that, it took 4 missed darts by MVG in the next leg to hand Beaten his second and last leg of the match, Steve could only shake hands, smile, and say "you are quite good at this game" Class.
Michael Bully Boy Smith knew he had to play well to beat an in form Dave Chisnall, and he did just that,9 maximums and an average of 104 to win the match 10-7.
Adrian Lewis and Peter Wright was always going to be a close match on paper and at 4-4 we looked set for one of those last leg games, but Lewis got in front and never lost his lead winning 10-7.
Martin Adams, BDO stalwart known for many years to criticize the PDC and the people who run it, openly declaring he would never accept his invitation to play at Wolves finally decided it was time to try his hand, and he hasn't let himself or his supporters down, unbeaten in the group matches and reaching the last 16 in style, his opponet last night was Kim Huybrechts a player gaining experience all the time, the match was close, very close, Adams raced into a 3-0 lead, Huybrechts pulled back to level 3-3, still level at 7-7 and indeed 9-9, just one leg to decide who went through, Huybrects throwing first and producing a 13 dart leg finishing on tops, Adams left with 80, who knows how long the match would have lasted if the 2 legs clear winning format ahd been in place, just 80 points seperating the two.
