Thousands of people - many in wacky fancy dress costumes such as Goldilocks and the three bears and Red Indians- watched Dave Chisnall win both his matches to move on to 17 points and second place in the table after 10 weeks.

Phil Taylor lost his fourth in five with defeat by Raymond van Barnevald, while Michael van Gerweb remains top after a 7-5 win over Stephen Bunting.
