Gibraltar Darts Trophy 2019

The seventh edition of the Gibraltar Darts Trophy took place from 27 to 29 September 2019 and is won by Krzysztof Ratajski. In the final, he beats Dave Chisnall 8-2. Ratajski becomes the first Polish winner of a EuroTour tournament ever.

Ratajski starts the tournament with a 6-3 win over Jonny Clayton. Then Joe Cullen and Ian White are beaten 6-3 and the Pole faces Daryl Gurney in the semi-finals. "Superchin" won a Players Championship a week earlier, but is not up to "The Polish Eagle": Ratajski wins the game 7-3.

In the final, Ratajski faces Dave Chisnall. After being too strong for Jeffrey de Zwaan 6-5 in the first round, Chisnall wins in the next round again from a Dutchman. This time it is Jermaine Wattimena who has to bow his head for the Englishman with 6-4. In the quarter-final match against James Wade, Chisnall throws a nine-darter and eventually wins the game 6-4. His semi-final match against Nathan Aspinall is an exciting one, but is eventually won by "Chizzy" 7-6.

Michael van Gerwen is eliminated in the third round in Gibraltar. Nathan Aspinall beats him 6-3. Together with Jermaine Wattimena, he is the best Dutchman during this tournament. Wattimena loses in the third round, as previously told by Dave Chisnall.

The final between Ratajski and Chisnall is initially equal: Chisnall takes a 2-0 lead with a 117-finish, but sees Ratajski coming back to 2-2 thanks to a 124-finish. From that moment on, it is the Pole who dictates the game: he wins a total of eight legs in a row and wins the final with convincing figures: 8-2. With this, the Pole wins his sixth PDC final and takes his first title at a EuroTour tournament.
