Gerwyn Price made the most of landing in the easier top half of the draw for the Night 7 action in Nottingham. The Iceman opened with a victory over compatriot Jonny Clayton, which set up a clash with Dimitri Van den Bergh in the semi-finals.
There, Price continued a good recent run of form against the Belgian, winning the fixture 6-4. That put the Iceman through to his third final of the 2023 Premier League Darts season. But his opponent in the headline fixture was a surprise.
On the other side of the draw, there were some major upsets on the night caused by Chris Dobey. Dobey, in his first full Premier League season, toppled Michael Smith in the quarter-finals, and there was a bigger result to follow for him.
In the semi-finals, Dobey had been a huge underdog against the in-form Michael van Gerwen. But the current Masters champion stunned the crowd by posting a 6-0 win. Hollywood though couldn’t complete the Night as he slipped to a 6-4 loss to Price in the Final.
Dimitri Van den Bergh 6-4 Nathan Aspinall

Price had been the match underdog in darts betting for the fixture. But with a 114 three-dart average in the match, the Welshman powered to a 6-1 result over Mighty Mike. That left him sitting comfortably in second place in the standings behind runaway leader MVG.
Peter Wright’s miserable season continued with another early loss, while Nathan Aspinall broke a long losing streak against Dimitri Van den Bergh, but couldn’t then topple Van Gerwen in the semi-finals. The results of the night left the same players sitting in the top four for the fifth week running.

Night 9 Winner – Jonny Clayton
30th Thursday, March 2023 – Berlin, Mercedes-Benz Arena
There was a stunning result for Jonny Clayton in Germany on Night 9. He was the big underdog in the bottom half of the draw, which was stacked with leading contenders. In the opening round, The Ferret held his nerve to beat Michael van Gerwen in a deciding leg.
Clayton then turned the tables on Welsh compatriot Gerwyn Price who had won Nights 7 and 8 in the Premier League. Again as a match underdog, Clayton took the win with a 6-4 score, putting him through to the final against Michael Smith.
Smith, who needed the deep run after a couple of back-to-back quarter-final results, was favourite for the match. But it was to be Clayton’s night as he stormed to a 6-4 win, taking advantage of Smith’s missed attempts at the doubles.
The top four in the standings stayed the same, with Smith reaching the final, and Nathan Aspinall claiming an important quarter-final victory over Chris Dobey, to keep that competitor off his back.
Dimitri Van den Bergh 3-6 Michael Smith
Nathan Aspinall 6-4 Chris Dobey
Jonny Clayton 6-5 Michael van Gerwen
Peter Wright 3-6 Gerwyn Price

Night 10 Winner – Jonny Clayton
6th Thursday, April 2023 – Birmingham, Utilita Arena
Jonny Clayton continued his burst of form to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League this season. After triumphing in Germany on Night 9, Clayton was back in the winners’ circle again as he came through the crowd to triumph in Birmingham.
Clayton opened with a good win over Nathan Aspinall, which was a big match in the race for a top-four finish. Clayton then beat Michael van Gerwen for the second week running, before taking down surprise finalist Peter Wright by a deciding leg.
The points haul for Clayton propelled him up to third place in the table, pushing Aspinall down into fifth place. Michael van Gerwen and Gerwyn Price, both semi-final losers in Birmingham, command the top two spots.

Nathan Aspinall 4-6 Jonny Clayton
Dimitri Van den Bergh 5-6 Gerwyn Price
Peter Wright 6-1 Michael Smith

There was a superb night of darts drama on the south coast on Night 11 of the Premier League Darts season. Jonny Clayton was looking to win the Night for the third straight round of action, but the Welshman was knocked over in the quarter-finals by Michael Smith.
Smith would go on to reach the Night 11 Final, adding some important points to his tally in the race for a top-four finish. But it was to be Gerwyn Price’s evening in Brighton, as he took a fairly routine 6-3 win over Smith in the Night 11 Final.
Price had dispatched Michael van Gerwen in a thrilling 6-5 win in the semis. The same tense scoreline that Smith had beaten Peter Wright by in his semi. The week’s results mean that the same players stayed in the top four from the previous round.
Dimitri Van den Bergh 2-6 Michael van Gerwen
Chris Dobey 2-6 Gerwyn Price
Peter Wright 6-5 Nathan Aspinall
Jonny Clayton 4-6 Michael Smith
Michael van Gerwen 5-6 Gerwyn Price
Peter Wright 5-6 Michael Smith
Gerwyn Price vs Michael Smith
Night 12 Winner – Nathan Aspinall
20th Thursday, April 2023 – Rotterdam, Rotterdam Ahoy
Night 12 saw Nathan Aspinall claim maximum points for the first time this season in a round of action. Aspinall badly needed that as well as his form had been going backwards, so much so that he had slipped out of the top four.
But with maximum points in Rotterdam, The Asp moved back up to third place. Aspinall opened the night with a narrow victory over Michael van Gerwen, the win coming via a deciding leg.
Aspinall then saw off Dimitri Van den Bergh before topping Gerwyn Price in the Night 12 final. That points haul for the in-form Gerwyn Price were big as they saw the Welshman take over at the top of the table from Michael van Gerwen.
Chris Dobey 4-6 Jonny Clayton
Michael Smith 3-6 Gerwyn Price
Dimitri Van den Bergh 6-3 Peter Wright
Michael van Gerwen 5-6 Nathan Aspinall

Dimitri Van den Bergh 4-6 Nathan Aspinall

Night 13 Winner – Michael Smith
27th Thursday, April 2023 – Leeds, First Direct Arena
There was an exciting night in Leeds which had more twists and turns in the race for a top four finish. It was the turn of Michael Smith, who had dropped out of the top four the previous week, to mount a big fightback.
Bully Boy took a 6-4 win in the Leeds final against Gerwyn Price, to claim maximum points for just the second time this season. They were timely points that moved him back up to third in the Premier League standings.
With another good night of action under his belt, Gerwyn Price remained top of the tree, helped out by another disappointing evening at the oche by Michael van Gerwen.
With just three rounds of the regular season lefts, it’s a three-way fight between Smith, Nathan Aspinall and Jonny Clayton for the remaining two spots in the top four.
Michael Smith 6-1 Chris Dobey
Michael van Gerwen 6-3 Peter Wright
Gerwyn Price 6-2 Jonny Clayton
Nathan Aspinall 6-4 Dimitri Van den Bergh

Night 14 Winner – Michael Smith
4th Thursday, May 2023 – Manchester, AO Arena
Michael Smith came through the pack in Manchester to win the night and confirm himself a spot in the season’s Finals Night. That was a big coup for Smith and it was his second success on the trot after winning in Leeds on Night 13 as well.
So he’s the form player, and those results mean that he can take his foot off the gas for the last two nights of the regular season if he wanted. Smith got his victory in Manchester the hard way as well because he was in the bottom half of the draw, where the rest of the top four players in the standings were as well.
He toppled Nathan Aspinall in the quarter-finals, before taking out Michael van Gerwen in the semi-finals. He took his chance in the night’s Final then when he met Jonny Clayton, a player fighting hard to try and reach the top four.
Smith took the win 6-3 in the match to sweep his way to Finals night and topped the night for the most 180s, while Chris Dobey topped the checkouts with a maximum of 170. Smith will likely be meeting Michael van Gerwen in the semi-finals of Finals night there. At the other end of the table, Peter Wright remained bottom.
Peter Wright 5-6 Jonny Clayton
Chris Dobey 6-2 Dimitri Van den Bergh
Michael Smith 6-3 Nathan Aspinall
Gerwyn Price 2-6 Michael van Gerwen
Jonny Clayton 6-3 Chris Dobey
Michael Smith 6-4 Michael van Gerwen
Jonny Clayton 3-6 Michael Smith
Night 15 Winner – Michael Smith
Bully Boy was at it again in Sheffield on Night 15 of the regular season. He triumphed 6-3 in the night’s final against Gerwyn Price. That was the third successive round of action that Smith has won as he storms towards the finish of the regular season.
Smith opened with a victory over Michael van Gerwen in the quarter-finals, one of the two players to start the night ahead of him in the standings. After then seeing off Jonny Clayton, another top-four player in the semi-finals, Smith posted the victory over Price convincingly.
Jonny Clayton was the other big winner of the night as he reached the semi’s. Starting the night level on points with Nathan Aspinall in the race for the final spot at Finals Night, Clayton was able to strengthen his position a little more.
Apsinall was a heavy quarter-final loser against Gerwyn Price in a match that he really needed to win. It leaves the race for the fourth spot hanging nicely in the balance though for Night 16, with Clayton holding a two-point advantage over Aspinall.
Gerwyn Price 6-2 Nathan Aspinall
Chris Dobey 6-4 Peter Wright
Michael van Gerwen 4-6 Michael Smith
Jonny Clayton 6-4 Dimitri Van den Bergh
Gerwyn Price 6-2 Chris Dobey
Michael Smith 6-4 Jonny Clayton
Michael Smith 6-3 Gerwyn Price
Night 16 Winner – Dimitri Van den Bergh
18th Thursday, May 2023 – Aberdeen, P&J Live
There was a big surprise in the final round of the regular season, as outsider Dimitri Van den Bergh collected maximum points in Aberdeen. The Belgian had little form behind him going into the round of action, starting Night 16 second from the bottom of the standings.
But he toppled Michael Smith in the quarter-finals, defying some big underdog odds in that one. The DreamMaker then got a boost of a walkover in his scheduled semi-final against Michael van Gerwen. MVG pulled out of the fixture with a shoulder injury.
Dimitri Van den Bergh once again found himself in the position of underdog in the Night 16 finale as he met table-topper Gerwyn Price. But in another stunning upset, Van den Bergh won a deciding leg to win the night.
In Night 16’s big quarter-final between Jonny Clayton and Nathan Aspinall, the latter produced a cracking 6-1 win. Clayton started the night in fourth place, holding the last spot for Finals Night.
Aspinall had to reach the Night 16 Final to pip Clayton to fourth place, but couldn’t keep the momentum going from his win over the Welshman, as he fell in the semis to Gerwyn Price.
Gerwyn Price 6-2 Peter Wright
Jonny Clayton 1-6 Nathan Aspinall
Michael Smith 4-6 Dimitri Van den Bergh
Michael van Gerwen 6-3 Chris Dobey
Gerywn Price 6-3 Nathan Aspinall
Dimitri Van den Bergh w/o vs w/d Michael van Gerwen
Gerywn Price 5-6 Dimitri Van den Bergh
25th Thursday, May 2023 – London, The O2
The 2023 Premier League Finals Night was contested on May 25th at the O2 in London. The top four finishers from the regular season moved ahead to the play-offs, which included the reigning champion Michael van Gerwen.
Van Gerwen hadn’t been in great form ahead of Finals Night, but he produced his best when it mattered most. After overcoming Michael Smith in the semi-finals, he romped to a huge 11-5 victory over Gerwyn Price in the Final.
That was the seventh Premier League Darts title for Michael van Gerwen, moving him ahead of Phil Taylor. It was also the second year running for MVG in winning the season’s top prize.
Gerwyn Price had gone into Finals Night as the front-runner in the darts betting market. The Welshman had topped the regular season standings and was in red-hot form in his semi-final, where he hammered Jonny Clayton 10-2.
Gerwyn Price 10-2 Jonny Clayton
Michael Smith 8-10 Michael van Gerwen
Gerwyn Price 5-11 Michael van Gerwen
