Target's Dave Chisnall picked up his third ranking title of the year with a stunning weekend in Denmark on the European Tour.

"Chizzy" won the Danish Darts Open in Copenhagen, averaging 98.83 for the entire tournament, hitting 18 maximums and nearly half his darts at double.

The five-time major finalist began with a controlled 6-2 win over former World Master Krzysztof Ratajski on Saturday, before edging past defending champion Mensur Suljovic in a last leg decider on the Sunday to reach the quarter-finals.

Chisnall eased past Jermaine Wattimena 6-1 before averaging 101 in a 7-6 victory over Jonny Clayton to reach a seventh European Tour final of his career.

Another efficient display of finishing helped "Chizzy" overcome Chris Dobey 8-3 to take the title - his first on the Euro Tour since 2013 - and means he is now just £14,000 outside the top ten in the world rankings.

"It's been a while, I've kept getting close but not finishing the job so this means a lot to me," said Chisnall, whose victory in the final saw him become just the fourth player to win 100 games on the European Tour.

"I felt good all day, both in practice and on the stage and I have to say the crowd really spurred me on, they were fantastic for all players across the weekend.

"Chris didn't play his best in the final, luckily for me, but he's someone I respect and he deserves all the success he gets."

The next PDC action comes with the resumption of the Players Championship series in Wigan next weekend, followed by another European Tour event in Prague in a fortnight.
