Michael Smith made it through to the Semi-Finals of the Dutch Darts Masters in Maastricht after an intense 6-5 victory over Robert Owen. It was a topsy turvy affair in which there were six breaks of throw in 11 legs. Smith opened up leads of 3-1 and 5-3 but missed doubles from the pair gave each other the opportunity to break each other. Despite Robert Owen pegging the score back to 5-5, Smith shown terrific bottle to fire in a 14-darter as he picked out D9 under the most severe pressure as Owen was sat on D16 for the victory. Smith comes up against Michael van Gerwen, a player who he has had alot of success over on the European Tour in previous years. Smith was edged out 6-5 by Van Gerwen in the Austrian Darts Open final in June in what was a top class affair and Smith will fancy his chances in this evening’s Semi Final battle at the MECC in Maastricht.
