DARTS: Smith stuns Barney
SWINDON darts star Dennis Smith claimed one of the game’s prize scalps as he beat five-time world champion Raymond van Barneveld in the German Darts Championship tonight.
The 44-year-old had lost all four of his previous meetings with the Dutchman before they met in Hildesheim, but held his nerve to win a close encounter 6-5 in the deciding leg.
Smith now faces Justin Pipe in the second round tomorrow evening, having guaranteed himself £1,000 in prize money for beating van Barneveld which will go a long way to making sure of his place at December’s World Championship.
