Debutant Dirk van Duijvenbode lost in the final!
The 73 ranked Dutch dart player had a fantastic week beating top ranked players such as Mensure Suljovix, Dimitri van den Berg, Gary Andersson and Simon Whitlock. Never before has a debutant made it to the final of the World Grand Prix.
In the final he met Gerwyn Price from Wales and it was clear from start that it would be a tough game for 28 year old van Duijvenbode.
Despite the loss in the final he now returns back to Westland with a total price of 50,000 GBP (around 55,000 EUR) and a massive gain of experience money cannot buy.
