Sunday’s run was ended by Joe Cullen in the quarter-finals as the losing finalist prevailed 6-4.

It was another strong day of darts from the resort thrower though as he picked up wins over Ronnie Baxter, Mark Barilli, Max Hopp and Caven.

Gerwyn Price won his second consecutive Players Championship title on Saturday, averaging over 108 against Caven as he triumphed 6-1.

Sunday’s event went to Benito van de Pas who produced a brilliant display in the final with a 6-0 demolition of Cullen.

Chisnall next heads to the two-day Dubai Duty Free Darts Masters which starts this Thursday, May 26.
