DAVE Chisnall reached the semi-final of the 2019 Jack’s Casino World Series of Darts Finals before losing to Dutchman Danny Noppert in the semi-final in Amsterdam.

Chizzy had beaten home favourite Raymond van Barneveld 10-8 in the quarter finals - in a tournament marked as the farewell of a legend in his home country.

It was a good run for the five-time World Champion as he produced some of his best darts of the year, but ultimately bid his farewell to the Dutch crowd in the quarter-finals.

Chisnall was then denied a repeat of the World Grand Prix Final with Michael van Gerwen at the hands of Noppert.

The 28-year-old produced an incredible 102 checkout in the deciding leg to capitalise on a missed match dart from Chisnall and book his place in the final.

In the final the World Number One van Gerwen blitzed through the pack on the final day of action at the AFAS Live, dropping just 12 legs in victories against Jonny Clayton, Mensur Suljovic and Noppert on his way to the title.

Averaging just under 102 for the tournament, Van Gerwen was at his dominant best throughout.

Noppert, playing in his first PDC televised final, started the brighter by clinching the opening leg but quickly faded.

Perhaps jaded from his epic last-leg Semi-Final victory over Chisnall, Noppert struggled to keep pace with Van Green who was finding the treble 20 with ease - landing nine maximums in total.

A string of nine successive legs followed from the reigning World Champion, as he raced to within two of the title at the second interval.

Looking for a showpiece finish, Van Gerwen landed seven perfect darts and scored 499 in nine, before floundering on double-one, allowing Noppert to take out 42 to get a second leg on the board.

But the title was quickly sealed by Van Gerwen as he clinched the remaining two legs to add to his victories in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

“It’s been another phenomenal tournament for me,” said Van Gerwen.

“The crowd here were fantastic, and I am very pleased to have produced a good performance for them and win myself another title”

“Danny also played a superb tournament and I am sure we will see more of him on the big stages in the future.”
