Adrian Lewis wins the first qualifier for the UK open in Wigan. He beat Michael van Gerwen 6-1 averaging 104.6 with three 180’s. Van Gerwen lost despite averaging 106. Mark Webster made it through to the semi finals and put up a fight against van Gerwen but couldn’t quite do enough to make the final. Dolan was the other man who made it through to the semis.
Max Hopp had a good day making it through to the quarter finals. He beat Michael Smith in the last 16 which caused quite a stir. Smith took to social media to show his displeasure and instead of being harsh on his own performance he also decided to criticize 18 year old Max Hopp.
Here’s the offending tweet.
Many darts fans showed their disgust about his comments
