  2. 29-10-2022.
  3. 10 pm 13. Price and Van Gerwen are killed. Van den Bergh will no longer have to take into account two competitors. Gerwyn Price was killed in his first round against Austrian Rowby-John Rodriguez. The Welsh number two in the world lost 6-4 and misses a clash against world champion Peter Wright in the 1/8th finals. Michael van Gerwen is also allowed to scratch in Dortmund. The Dutch wrecking ball, again working on a top year, seemed to be able to resist against a strong Chris Dobey, but went down in a deciding leg. .
  4. 19 hours 49. Sterke Van den Bergh to 1/8th final. With Daryl Gurney, Van den Bergh encountered a storm in the opening round. The Northern Irishman shot to the top of the darts world a few years ago with two major victories, but then slipped due to volatility. Van den Bergh had not been able to qualify for the European Championship in the last two years and therefore had no ranking points to defend. That little pressure led to a smooth win in the opening leg. Gurney riposted by also taking his first leg smoothly, the tone seemed set. But then the level silted up. Misses on both sides – especially Gurney messed up – caused the averages to drop, Van den Bergh was able to keep his throw with great difficulty. Until 3-2, both men remained “on throw”, but then Van den Bergh pulled out with a great eleven-darter to go through Gurney’s throw. “Dancing Dimi” was suddenly completely loose and waltzed with high scores on “Superchin”. At 5-2, Van den Bergh again went through Gurney’s pitch, the issue was settled. With an average of 101 and a percentage of 42 on his doubles, Van den Bergh can confidently go towards the 1/8th final. There he will meet Ross Smith (PDC 28) tomorrow, who surprisingly knocked out Joe Cullen. .
  5. 4 pm 20. Extremely difficult draw for Van den Bergh. Because the European Championship does not divide the table on the basis of the world ranking, there are often heavy posters early in the tournament. Luke Humphries, who won four European Tour tournaments this season, is the first seed. Van den Bergh, the number 13 in the world, is placed eleventh and will meet Daryl Gurney, the number 24 in the world, in the first round. If Dancing Dimi can overcome that hurdle, a meeting with Joe Cullen (PDC 14) may await in the 1/8th finals, in the quarterfinals there is normally a confrontation with Peter Wright or Gerwyn Price, the numbers 1 and 2 in the world . .
  6. 4 pm 10. European Darts Championship in Dortmund. The European Darts Championship is the next top tournament this autumn. In Dortmund, the 32 best players of the past year on the European Tour will compete for the European title.  With a prize pool of 575,000 euros, the ranking tournament is one of the most important of the year, the winner takes home 140,000 euros on Sunday. Dimitri Van den Bergh is the only Belgian on the table, he has placed himself as eleventh seed. “Dancing Dimi” did this this season, among other things, by reaching the final at the European Tour tournaments in Leverkusen and in Jena. .
