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.
