Wade stuns Taylor in Belfast
James Wade has shaken things up in the Premier League of Darts by beating Phil Taylor in the fourth series of games.
It is the second time that Wade has overcome The Power in this particular event and this triumph puts him right back in contention.
While the flight of darts was clearly in his favour, he played some clever combinations and never allowed his opponent to seize an advantage.
"When you play Phil enough times you know what you have to do," he said afterwards.
"I would've been happy with a 7-7 draw but I played well, did what I had to do, and I'm very happy with an 8-4 win."
Mervyn King kept up his impressive form by beating Jelle Klaasen 8-4, while John Part served Wayne Mardle with a 8-1 thumping.
Raymond van Barneveld did just enough to claim a 6-8 victory over Terry Jenkins, which is his first win of this year's tournament.
