Raymond van Barneveld narrowly missed a nine-dart finish in his Premier League play-off semi-final against Michael van Gerwen at London's O2.
The Dutch ace and five-time world champion hit two maximums before hitting treble 20, double 19, but missed out on the holy grail of darts by a width of a wire.
Defending champion van Barneveld, who achieved the nine-dart feat in the Premier League in 2006 and 2010, was eventually beaten 10-8 by the world No 1 in a thrilling semi-final.
