Raymond van Barneveld and Michael van Gerwen have Thursday both have a point about their party in the fourth matchday of the Premier League. Jelle Klaasen picked up his first two points in Brighton convincing win of Dave Chisnall: 7-3.

Van Barneveld stronger against Peter Wright I came back from behind and drew the last two sets to itself, in which ‘Barney’ is still a point left him to take: 6-6.

It is after his defeat against Adrian Lewis (7-5), draw against Kim Huybrechts and loss against Phil Taylor (7-4) for the fourth Premier League point for Van Barneveld.

Also Van Gerwen facing Adrian Lewis no further than 6-6. He was against the two-time world champion in the twelfth and final leg of the chance to the profits, but he missed a little bull’s eye to 170 to throw out. Lewis, who earlier in the party, however, once the maximum finish had listed, proposed, then a point is safe.

For ‘Mighty Mike’ meant that his second draw in the Premier League. Rather, it was his duel with Scotsman Gary Anderson, a repeat of the world cup final, in balance. Van Gerwen won then of Wright (7-3) and Klaasen (7-4).

Klaasen did Thursday do to win. He broke Chisnall three times, and walked out to a 6-2 lead over the Englishman, that the duel began with two points after three rounds. Crucial was the seventh leg, when the Englishman failed its arrears to bring it back to 4-3, then Klaasen managed 152 throw out.

Chisnall kept at 6-2 once more, his own place, but saw Klaasen then the decisive lay-up.

For the 32-year-old Klaasen, are the his first two Premier League points after three defeats in a row against, respectively, Wright (4-7), Anderson (3-7) and Van Gerwen (4-7).


Anderson got it Thursday, not to James Wade to beat (6-6). This gave Phil Taylor the chance to take the lead in the Premier League, but the Briton did not exceed 6-6 against Kim Huybrechts.

That means that Van Gerwen after Thursday shared a leader.

Enjoyed playing in a good game with Adrian Lewis. Would’ve enjoyed more to win but pleased to get a point. Hope you all enjoyed watching!
