Barney hits Jackpot in Las Vegas

(from Sky Sports)

Raymond van Barneveld won his first Las Vegas Desert Classic title with a 13-6 demolition of Terry Jenkins.

World champion Van Barneveld, who had a three-dart average of more than 100 for the tournament, was too strong for Jenkins in a one-sided final.

The opening four legs were shared before van Barneveld found his range and reeled off eight of the next nine to open a 10-3 lead.

It was a superb exhibition of scoring and finishing from the Dutchman that left Jenkins with little option but to watch and admire.

World number five Jenkins briefly rallied by taking two legs in a row to reduce his deficit to 10-5.

But it was merely making the scoreline more respectable as van Barneveld composed himself and then claimed three of the next four legs to complete a comprehensive 13-6 success.

“I’m very happy and a really proud man to win this one,” van Barneveld told Sky Sports afterwards.
