Premier League champion Raymond van Barneveld was delighted to maintain his impressive record in Aberdeen with a surprise win against fellow Dutchman Michael van Gerwen.
Barney recorded a 98 average as he eased to a 7-3 victory.
And he says the victory continued his love affair with the Granite City.
He said: “I’m really happy to have beaten Phil Taylor last week and Michael this week.
“I know Gary Anderson is the world champion but those two players are the best in the world.
“In 10 years in Aberdeen I have only lost once. I’ve eight wins, a draw and a defeat so Aberdeen seems to suit me very well. Scotland suits me, whether I’m in Aberdeen, Edinburgh or Glasgow.
“It seems to be good for me and I always feel at home here.”
The night began with a high-quality encounter in which Taylor defeated Dave Chisnall 7-3. Both players averaged more than 100 with Taylor notching five maximums.
Taylor was jeered on to the stage by the Aberdeen crowd but the 54-year-old was pleased to win the locals round with an impressive display.
He said: “I’ve always felt under pressure and the crowd were on my back from the start. That gives me the incentive to shut them up.
“When I started to win they turned and started to cheer me. That’s an odd thing but it has happened for 25 years now.”
Adrian Lewis defeated Stephen Bunting in the second match, registering a comfortable 7-2 victory.
He said: “I’ve been putting a lot of work in and it’s starting to show. I changed my darts three weeks ago and they seem to be working.
“I love coming here. The crowd were very respectful.”
Scotland’s Anderson came from 6-2 behind to earn a point against James Wade before the night concluded with a thrilling 6-6 draw between Taylor and Bunting.
