Adrian Lewis nine-darter stole the show but the Premier Leagues top four all showed their immense quality on Thursday in Belfast. [url=http://www.cheapecco.us/]Discount Ecco Shoes Sale[/url] . REPORT: Lewis trumps Wade Nine-darters, epic draw, and two Barney games Michael van Gerwen drew with Gary Anderson meaning the victorious Phil Taylor remains top of the shop, but it wasnt a successful night for everyone.What did we learn in Belfast? Finally a nine-darter! But do we need more?Lewis nine-dart leg during his victory over James Wade was the Premier Leagues first in four years, a remarkable streak that has finally been broken. Somehow, the worlds finest throwers had conspired to starve us of the perfect leg dating back to 2012 when Simon Whitlock achieved darts grandest finish against Andy Hamilton. Adrian Lewis ended a four-year drought Poor old Wayne Mardle, our Sky Sports expert, has been predicting a nine-darter every week for four years without any joy but he was right to continue backing the boys. Lewis and co have always proved they have the ability to score a nine-darter but had bizarrely saved their best efforts for other tournaments - Anderson, in January, nailed a perfect leg at the World Championship against Jelle Klaasen.Lewis, after Thursdays success against Wade, revealed he had already hit a nine-darter in the practice room. Van Gerwen did the same over the weekend at a Tour event. The quality has never been higher, so hopefully Lewis has broken down a barrier to more frequent nine-dart finishes.Who is currently the worlds best player?Van Gerwen and Anderson thundered the dartboard in a scintillating 6-6 draw that took just 16 minutes, creating such a whirlwind of arrows that the Belfast crowd were briefly silenced into a state of shock. Nobody deserved to lose this high-quality encounter, especially after Anderson sensationally fended off an attempted break of throw with a 119 checkout. Reaction from Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson At that moment, it was difficult to decide if world No 1 Van Gerwen was a better player than defending Premier League and World Championship winner Anderson. Locked at the pinnacle of the sport, their feverish back-and-forth rivalry means debate will rage about the superior player regardless of Van Gerwens current place atop the PDC rankings.Of course, the elephant is the room is Taylor. Sitting pretty with a four-point lead at the top of the league, Taylor has quietly gone about his business amid questions of whether he still has another major title in his locker. Try telling The Power that Van Gerwen or Anderson is the worlds best player…Barneys play-off hopes are overPrior to Thursday, Mardle speculated: If [Raymond van Barneveld] can nick four points, hes back in the mix. Hes got a lifeline. If he doesnt get all four points, hes out of it. The leg that may have ended Barneys season... The Dutch legend is five points off the play-off spots, having already played a game extra than fourth-placed Anderson. There are four more weeks before the play-offs at Londons O2 Arena so mathematically Van Barneveld can still stage a turnaround but, realistically, his fate is largely in his rivals hands.He put up a decent battle in Belfast, but a late comeback couldnt prevent defeat to Taylor. From there, even a win against Robert Thornton couldnt raise a smile. Barney is seventh in the Premier League and it looks very likely his season will end in Rotterdam, in his home country of the Netherlands, on May 12.The Thorn is still pricklyThornton, in all likelihood, is going through the motions with the remaining weeks of the Premier League. Sitting at the bottom of the table, he never truly harboured any play-off hopes and would have just been delighted to escape elimination on Judgement Night. Robert Thornton earned his best win of the season Yet the freedom has resulted in Thorntons best performances of the season, and a 7-2 win against Peter Wright on Thursday is his finest result to date. He followed it up with defeat to Van Barneveld that forced him to spend another week in eighth place, but suddenly Thornton has become a tricky customer for the seven players that look down on him.The battle for fourthTaylor is currently top of the Premier League with 20 points, and Van Gerwen trails him on 16. Lewis is third with 15, and Anderson is a point behind in fourth. But dangerously, Wade is only one point off the pace and Snakebite Wright has 11. James Wade is firmly in the play-off hunt Taylor and Van Gerwen seem assured of their play-off spots as part of the top four, but the rest is up for grabs. Even reigning champion Anderson is by no means assured of maintaining his defence, despite a hearty 6-6 draw with Van Gerwen.Six of the eight remaining players have realistic ambitions of getting to The O2, so its all to play for…Watch Premier League Darts next Thursday from Birmingham, live on Sky Sports 2 HD at 7pm.
