Shanghai Darts Masters 2017
The second edition of the Shanghai Darts Masters was played on 6 and 7 July. The European participants are Michael van Gerwen, Phil Taylor, Gary Anderson, Peter Wright, James Wade, Raymond van Barneveld, Dave Chisnall and Gerwyn Price.
Just like in the first edition, all European players reach the second round easily. The Europeans lose four legs in total. In the quarterfinals Raymond van Barneveld beats Gary Anderson with a surprisingly big difference 8-1. Title defender Michael van Gerwen comes back from 0-5 down against Phil Taylor. The Dutchman survives a matchdart of The Power. Dave Chisnall and James Wade compete the semi-final line-up.
In the semi-finals Dave Chisnall proves too strong for Van Barneveld and Van Gerwen is too strong for Wade. The final will not be a real match. Chisnall cannot produce his semi-final form and does not win a leg against Michael van Gerwen, who retains his title.
