In the fourth of the show, Michael van Gerwen picks his 2017 World Championship clash against Raymond van Barneveld as his game.
Van Gerwen went to the championship ranked as the No 1 at the world claimed Premier League titles that season, World Grand Prix, Grand Slam and the World Matchplay.
He had beaten Daryl Gurney, Cristo Reyes, Darren Webster and Kim Viljanen to establish a clash along with his fellow countryman in the past four.
The pair traded blows into a magnificent opening five places before Van Gerwen opened a lead up.
“I felt quite great because it was likely the best tournament I’ve played in my life,” explained Van Gerwen. “It was really important for me to perform nicely against Raymond and that I had to I would have lost that game.”
After moving 4-2 upward MVG did not look back, making one of the best performances the Ally Pally has ever witnessed, averaging a championship record 114.05 and narrowly missing double 12, en route to a detailed 6-2 victory.
“It was nice to conquer Raymond, I hadn’t won anything after that, however, it gave me confidence to the tournament, and I played well later also.”
Van Gerwen would take that form and end Gary Anderson’s reign as world champion, beating The Flying Scotsman 7-3 to claim his next world title.
