Deeping darts ace Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams won the big Dutch Open tournament in Assen yesterday (February 1).

It was the third time Adams had won the title - he was also champion in 2010 and 2011 - and he beat Darryl Fitton 3-1 in the final to pocket the first prize of 5,000 euros.

Fitton nevertheless was very happy himself too. In the third leg of the fourth set, the ‘Dazzler’ threw a nine-darter to win a brand new Broekhuis Skoda car.

In the women’s final it was Dutch ace Aileen de Graaf who won the title for the second year in a row. In a thrilling final she beat Deta Hedman 5-2.

Last 64: beat Frank Schasfoort 4-2

Last 32: beat Robin Blockx 4-0

Last 16: beat Jeffrey Sparidaans 4-3

Quarter-final: beat Richard Veenstra 5-4

Semi-final: beat Marcel Blik 2-1 (2-3, 3-0, 3-2)
