Crowd keeping order is odd

Smith looked like he could fall apart then but taking it to 3-2 and leaving himself a finish when it wasn’t his darts will be good for the nerves

Need to take the next set to get the game going

What was Smith mouthing about coming off? Complaining about mvg celebration?
He looked like his mentor (who is there supporting him) the 'crying Scotsman' for a split second.

Looking pretty ominous this.

Think Smith is certainly feeling Firstworldfinalitis.

Probably because they haven't got 3 mediocre matches on and they value the price of the ticket they've paid for tonight i'd bet.

That is as good a reason as any to be supporting Bullyboy tonight. I also have bet Michael Smith to win, but only at 14/1 ew.
Various things on tonight:
- 35 or more 180s @ 5/1 (WH)
- Both to have 15 or more 180s @ 13/8 (Betfair)
- Both to average 100 or more and have at least 12 180s each @ 6/4 (Hills)

Also done a complicated ton plus checkouts arb between Hills and Spreadex but too complicated to explain here.
Hope you haven't put too much on - could be an expensive night!

Smith missing those 3 at double 12! Missed opportunity to win that set.

Let's see how he reacts after this break.

Come back at about 9.40 for confirmation! Hats off to MvG for how he has played. Going to take some comeback from Smith to stop him now.

Vinny said in the studio he told MVG to be more business like and not take his foot off the gas like he did with Anderson at 5-0.

He hasn’t really played that well. Think smith has had darts to take 3 of the 4 sets

Nope not played well at all. If he had taken some of those chances would not be 4-1 behind.
