Mighty Mike faces The Power in darts finale

The 2013 PDC World Darts Championship reaches its dramatic conclusion tonight at the Alexandra Palace in London with a highly anticipated clash between 15-times winner Phil Taylor of England and Dutch prodigy Michael van Gerwen.

‘The Power’ Taylor blasted through to the final via a 6-4 semifinal victory on Sunday night over 2007 champion Raymond van Barnevald, while 23-year-old ‘Mighty Mike’ beat England’s James Wade 6-4 in the other semi match-up which included a 9-dart finish by the Dutchman.

Dean Winstanley had also completed a perfect leg during his second round match on December 23 to take a share of the £15,000 (US$24,240) bonus cash prize.

The winner of tonight’s final will collect £200,000.
