Phil Taylor exits the competition of William Hill World Darts Championship upon he has been unexpectedly defeated by Jelle Klaasen.
None of the online gambling news in the UK would have predicted the results of the World Darts Championship on day 12 since it did bring some shocking result. Not only Michael van Gerwen has been forced to leave the tournament but Phil Taylor exits as well due to a surprisingly great performance by his opponent Jelle Klaasen.
Phil Taylor exits the William Hill World Darts Championship as early as day 12. This is an incredibly poor performance by the successful darts player as he was regarded as number three seed player, meaning he is in the top 3 out of all participating darts players. However, Jelle Klaasen proved to be better than last year’s runner-up this time.
Gambling facts could not have been trusted this time since nothing implicated that Klaased could be good enough to defeat Phil Taylor. Klaasen did not win any major darts tournament since 2006 when he won the World Darts Championship. However, this time his performance was good enough to force out Phil Taylor’s exit of the competition.
Phil Taylor is one of the most famous darts players. Not only he was seeded number 3 this year, but he is a living legend in darts. He has won the World Darts Championship 16 times in the past and has been looking for his 17th world cup glory since 2013. He was extremely close to it last year but Gary Anderson defeated him in a glorious battle in the final. Now Jelle Klaasen did the same to him before the finals so the legendary darts player will have to wait at least another year to be able to become World Darts Champion again, for the 17th time throughout his fascinating career.
