Kyle Anderson wins again – into the semi finals now

THE TAB.com.au Sydney Darts Masters continue on Friday with the quarter-finals at the Hordern Pavilion from 8pm (local time).

Another great win for Kyle Anderson beating the UK based Aussie Simon Whitlock 8-3, so he now goes through to the semi finals tomorrow – he’ll have a load of local support.

TABtouch Perth Darts Masters Final Day; Taylor Wins vs MvG

Taylor wins in Perth

Taylor wins in Perth

 

Phil Taylor shows yet again he’s still the master, as he beats Michael van Gerwen in Perth, another of the World Series of darts tournaments (or exhibitions in reality).

A LOT of Australian darts fans turned out for this event, that cannot be denied looking at the pictures, but it was a shame there was no TV/internet coverage at all.  So only those lucky enough to be there could keep up with the games.  MvG hit over 118 average yesterday – and I’ve seen it was actually possibly 120+ – but those saying it’s the “world record for a TV event” seem to be forgetting the event wasn’t on TV, either here or in Australia.  And to call the tournament “a major” is pushing the term to it’s utter limits.   Still, shows MvG still is chucking some great darts.
