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.

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.
