Defending champion Dimitri van den Bergh beat world champion Gerwyn Price in their blockbuster quarter-final at the World Matchplay.
The Belgian took advantage of an error-strewn display by Price to win 16-9 at Blackpool's Winter Gardens.
With Price struggling with his doubles, Van Den Bergh turned a 2-1 deficit into a 6-2 lead.
Price hit back for 6-4 and trailed by one at 9-8, but at 10-8 down the Welshman missed three darts at 40 allowing Van Den Bergh to go three ahead again.

Van Den Bergh had won six legs on the trot before Price pinched one back, but it was only delaying the inevitable as the 27-year-old from Antwerp wrapped up victory with a two-dart 68 finish.
He will face Krzysztof Ratajski, who earlier in the evening secured a place in his first PDC televised semi-final.
The 'Polish Eagle' produced a polished performance in defeating Callan Rydz 16-8.
