888.com European Darts Championship 2014

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN landed a historic nine-dart finish on his way to the 888.com European Championship title on Sunday night, as he achieved the feat against Raymond van Barneveld before storming past Terry Jenkins 11-4 in the final at the RWE Sporthalle in Germany.

The world number one’s amazing October continued as he claimed the £55,000 first prize and followed up his World Grand Prix triumph a fortnight ago and a Players Championship title last Sunday with victory for a third successive weekend. Van Gerwen had seen off Justin Pipe and Brendan Dolan as he won through to Sunday’s final stages, but hit top gear with a 111 average in his 10-5 quarter-final win over Dave Chisnall.

The World Champion then hit the fourth televised nine-dart finish of his career as he came from 2-0 down to defeat van Barneveld 11-6 in the semi-finals. Van Gerwen’s moment of perfection came in the seventh leg when, trailing 4-2, he opened the leg with a 177 and then landed a 180, before finishing 144 with two treble 20s and double 12 for a fourth televised nine-darter – earning himself a £5,000 bonus.
