A180s Dart Player Dave Chisnall 'Chizzy' Defeats Phil Taylor 4-1
DAVE CHIZZY CHISNALL CUTS THE POWER WITH SENSATIONAL SCORING POWER IN THE LADBROKES WORLD DARTS CHAMPIONSHIP
DAVE CHISNALL sensationally knocked Phil Taylor out of the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship with a stunning 4-1 triumph at Alexandra Palace on Tuesday night.
The 15-time World Champion suffered defeat in the last 32 of the £1 million tournament for the first time since the PDC's formation 19 years ago as the St Helens ace picked up the biggest win of his career to date.
Chisnall averaged 99.05 to Taylor's 100.32, but crucially punished missed doubles from Taylor, who hit only ten from 31 attempts during the game in failing to reach at least the quarter-finals for the first time.
Taylor missed darts to win the first set and, after winning the second 3-2 lost the third and fourth in a decider to lead himself 3-1 down, before Chisnall edged in front in set five before sealing an amazing win in 13 darts.
"This is the best night of my career so far," said Chisnall. "It's a great feeling and I'm over the moon.
