PDC Championship - Semifinals
Both semi-finals ended with the same result - Peter Wright and Michael van Gerwen progressed with 6:3 wins over Gerwyn Price and Nathan Aspinall into the World Championship final. After a one day break the final will be played on 1. January 2020. All in all it was not a gripping semi-finals night and the Alexandra Palace crowd was not electrified. Gerwyn Price played disappointing and Michael van Gerwen looked jaded. He only threw three 180s in the match, scored poor in patches and was not too clinical on his doubles even though Nathan Aspinall was often not able to use his chances. Peter Wright showed with a 98.39 average the best performance of the night but his double hitting rate leaves room for improvement as well.

Michael van Gerwen won his last eight match with 10:6 against Jonny Clayton and afterwards demolished Mensur Suljovic in the semi-finals with 11:4 while the second semi-final between Dave Chisnall and Danny Noppert was a highly compatitive match.
