David Chisnall sends fans wild with 9-darter after 3-year wait on European tour

David Chisnall proved that he's the world's foremost nine-dart specialist after landing a perfect checkout to kick off the semi-final of the Belgian Darts Open in Wieze on Sunday night.

The Englishman, who was facing Holland's Danny Noppert, sent fans absolutely starkers to end three long years without a nine-dart finish on the European Tour (check out the video below).

The last man to do it? Chisnall himself, at the Gibraltar Darts Trophy back in 2019 during his quarter-final win over James Wade – and he went the same route too, hitting three T20s twice in a row before a T20, T19, D12 finish.

Fans on social media were loving it as much as everyone packed into Wieze's Oktoberhallen.

"What a player, pure class," one fan tweeted.

"Arrows from Chizzy rascal. Legend," commented another, while a third wrote: "The Morecombe maestro. Unbelievable that." A fourth said: "Amazing moment from Chizzy, absolutely raising the Oktoberhallen roof!"

Chizzy followed his epic start with a 136 checkout to secure a commanding early lead over Noppert.

The Dutchman later kicked into life with a 142 checkout to trail 4-3 Chisnall turned on the style to seal an emphatic 7-4 victory to reach the final, where he went on to beat Andrew Gilding 8-6 to be crowned Belgian Darts Open champion.
