Michael van Gerwen did hit the first 9-darter live on television in 2019 this weekend. But after the match he was not happy for the fact there was no price money for this achievement. He even claimed he might consider to deliberately go for single 8 instead of double 12 next time.
Chris Mason and Wayne Mardle discussed Michael Van Gerwens comments regarding threatens to ‘do a Ronnie O’Sullivan’. ‘Mace the Ace’ even believes the number 1 in the world can get fined for this.
