The Iceman Gerwyn Price defeated World Number 2 Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright in the final of the International Open to remain as the World Number 1.

The blockbuster final saw the top 2 in the World take to the stage in the Riesa in what could have been a change in the World rankings. In what you would expect from a top tier game, both players scoring power was immense with both players averaging 106.

Gerwyn kept Peter at bay finishing the game 8-4 with 88.89% checkout rate only missing one match dart compared to Peter’s 12 missed leg darts. Gezzy mentioned in an interview

“There was a lot of pressure on me in that final with the world number one spot resting on it, so I’m proud of myself tonight”

“I’ve played here four time and won three of them; I thank the crows immensely for the reception they gave me and the way they supported both players in the final.”

The 2,000 in attendance at the Sachsenarena saw Price play in 4 matches in the final day of the open, with wins over the Australian, Demon Heta in last 16 before victories over Danny Noppert and the returning Nathan Aspinall in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively.

Wright remains on the verge of becoming world number one for the first time in his career, but will have to wait at least until next weekend's Cazoo UK Open. Wright

An impressive weekend from the reigning World Champion saw him come through a last-leg shoot-out with Michael Smith in the quarter-finals, before enjoying a 7-3 success over Jonny Clayton in the semi-finals.

"I've got to fight to become world number one, I know it won't just be given to me," said Wright.

"Gerwyn showed tonight why he is world number one and a former World Champion; he never gives up, he always fights.

"But I'm after him, and hopefully I can do enough over the next few weeks."
