    Nathan Aspinall has just won the UK Open! He beat Rob Cross 10-5 in the final.

    And how did he win it?! With a 170 Checkout!

    Some big news from the World of Darts tonight, Raymond Van Barneveld has announced his intention to retire immediately, we all knew he was retiring this year but he has been eliminated from the Premier League and lost out to MVG 7-1 in Rotterdam tonight in his last ever PL game in which he was very emotional.

    His form in this years Premier League has been poor but he has shown signs of improvement making it to a Euro tour final at the weekend. I really hope he sleeps on this before making any rash decisions he still has something to offer and a lot to give.

    Gerwyn Price won the Grand Slam Of Darts on Sunday beating Peter Wright 16-6 in the final, Gerwyn was in brilliant form all week and he beat Van Gerwen in the semi finals and Gary Anderson in the quarters, he is now up to a career high third place in the updated world rankings.

    The PDC World Championship starts on December 13th.

    PDC World Darts Championship semi finals is tonight.

    Michael Van Gerwen (1) v Nathan Aspinall (12)
    Peter Wright (7) v Gerwyn Price (3)

    Best of 11 sets, first to 6. Sky Sports Darts and Sky Sports Main Event from 7pm.

    Its been a great tournament thus far, main talking point being female player Fallon Sherrock's historic run to the last 32, beating Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic and becoming the first ever female player to beat the men at the World Championship.

    Firstly thank you for posting in this thread!

    Secondly we will find out about this years Premier League during the final on Wednesday night, it will be interesting to see what they do with it next year as the contenders thing they did this year was really popular, the fans loved seeing the young talent competing every week and the players loved the opportunity (even though none of them actually won!) the only reason they did the contenders thing was because Gary Anderson couldn't compete with his back injury he had during the first five months of the year so we have to wait and see what they announce what for next year, but Fallon would be a good shout.

    The Final.

    Michael Van Gerwen (1) v Peter Wright (7)

    Best of 13 sets, first to 7, Sky Sports Darts and Sky Sports Main Event from 7pm.

    PDC have announced that this years Premier League will be a 'contenders' style tournament similar to last year, the top four in the World rankings will still get picked and right now that's Van Gerwen, Price, Wright and Cross in that order. then the next five players will be wildcard picks with one players featuring every week.

    Peter Wright is the new World Champions after beating Van Gerwen 7-3 last night, it was thoroughly deserved as he was by far and away the best player last night, he completely out classed MVG who never really got going. I'm really happy for Wright and its a been long time coming for him.

    This year's Premier League was announced after the match last night, its made up of nine players with one 'challenger' taking part each for the first nine weeks up until Judgement Night in Rotterdam, The nine players are:

    Michael Van Gerwen
    Peter Wright
    Gerwyn Price
    Gary Anderson
    Michael Smith
    Daryl Gurney
    Rob Cross
    Nathan Aspinall
    Glen Durrant

    Aspinall and Durrant are tournament debutants. James Wade, Mensur Suljovic and the newly-retired Van Barneveld miss out from last year.

    Only two 'challengers' have been announced thus far with the other seven expected in the coming days, John Henderson will take part on opening night in Aberdeen with Fallon Sherrock taking part in Nottingham a week after, 'challengers' wont score any points if they win or draw against their opponents but their opponents will if they win or draw.

    Premier League starts on February 6th and will run every Thursday in a different arena until the play-off at the 02 in London on 21st May.
