Reigning Champion Secures Thrilling Win Over Michael Smith in Liverpool
Michael van Gerwen Secures Third Consecutive Victory in the Premier League
Michael van Gerwen has continued his dominance in the Premier League, clinching his third straight win in Liverpool on Thursday night. The reigning champion held a six-point lead heading into Week Six, which he has now extended with a thrilling performance against Michael Smith in the final.
Van Gerwen, who had already overcome Jonny Clayton and Peter Wright, faced Smith in the showpiece match. While Smith put up a fierce challenge and even moved into the lead, he ultimately lost his momentum in the eighth leg, allowing van Gerwen to take control and clinch the victory by a 6-4 scoreline.
With this win, van Gerwen has established an impressive eight-point lead over Smith, who is now in second place. Nathan Aspinall, who was defeated by Smith in the semis, sits in third place.
Other notable results from the night include Peter Wright’s win over Gerwen Price and Chris Dobey’s fifth straight loss of the season. Van Gerwen’s third consecutive victory serves as a strong reminder of why he is considered one of the greatest darts players of all time, and fans can’t wait to see what he has in store for the remainder of the Premier League.
