At one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking dart matches ever, Dimitri van den Bergh emerged the grand winner at the competition Betfred World Matchplay 2020. He lifted the award and proudly upheld his first televised ranking title on Sunday. Crushing his competitor, Gary Anderson, at the cut-throat match of darts, Dimitry emerged victorious with a colossal and prestigious 18-10 victory.
The final event of the championship tournament began on shaky grounds as both the players struggled to stay afloat and maintain a decent score. The match progressed slowly as the opponents continued to maintain an average score of 87, until, Dimitri broke through with a leading 3-2 score. The second half of the match was pregnant with intense moves, as both, the players continued to score more and more points, until the match tied at 5-5. The game continued until Dimitri took the lead again with 8-7 at the third session of the match and finally won the championship. The 26-year-old Belgian darts player finally won the event and bagged a whopping cash prize of 150,000 pounds as well.
Dimitri witnessed his fantastic dream come true with his victory at Betfred World Matchplay Championship. However, the champion refuses to bask in the glory but wants to move forward and win many more titles. Dimitri is all set to compete at more Professional Darts Corporation events. He has been the World Youth Champion twice, and is currently the World Matchplay Champion too at his debut year at the world championship.
