Template - Date: European Darts Grand Prix (ET6)

Ian White clinched his second career European Title with a dramatic last-leg 8-7 victory over Peter Wright to win the 2019 European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen.

It was third time a charm for White as he made a third successive European Tour final in as many weeks, before finally picking up the top prize. Losing out to Michael van Gerwen in both the German Darts Open and Austrian Darts Open, White must have been relieved to face a different opposition in this final, but was pushed all the way by the world number six.

After trading the opening three legs, White was the first to break throw as he produced a show-stopping 170 checkout – the third of the tournament – to lead 3-1. Wright quickly bit back to level things at 3-3, as he chased his first European Tour title since 2017.

One hold of throw after another came next, with little to separate the two in a nervy encounter as it got to six legs apiece. It was there that Wright stuck what seemed a decisive blow. White missed tops for a 120 checkout, and ’Snakebite’ landed a huge 104 checkout on D16 to move one leg away from the title.

But White wasn’t ready to let another European Tour title slip through his fingers, and fired his second 180 of the match in response as he broke back to force a deciding leg at 7-7. And with the throw in last, the Stoke-star held firm and sealed his second career European Tour title on D16.

The European Tour action will continue on May 24-26 with the 2019 Dutch Darts Masters in Zwolle, The Netherlands, with Van Gerwen looking to retain his title.
