Four players have qualified for the play-offs of the Italian Super Premier League

The last league matches of the Italian Super Premier League, organised by Jacopo Ghirardon, with several matches being streamed on the Facebookpage Diddle for the Middle has come to an end. In four weeks time 16 of the best Italian players have competed against each other to claim one of the four spots for the play-offs.

Michele Turetta was very impressive during the league phase and therefore topped the league. He won thirteen of his fifteen matches and lost only once. In a sensational match Danilo Vigato averaged 99,57 to be the only player being capable to beat Turetta in the league phase. Vigato won 7-2 against Turetta. Turetta got 27 out of a possible 30 points. Alessio Passadore was able to force a draw against the best player of the league phase.

Daniele Petri narrowly took the second spot by collecting 25 points. Petri had an impressive 7-1 victory against Danilo Vigato on his way. His only loss was a 7-4 defeat against Michele Turetta. Petri had three draws, including against two top five players.

Danilo Vigato, the current Italian champion, had as noted above an impressive 7-2 victory averaging 99,57 against Michele Turetta, who had only lost once in the league phase. Vigato had suffered two defeats during the league phase. One against Daniele Petri (7-1) and one against Samuele Casotto (7-4). Vigato, who got 24 points, claimed a very important victory 7-2 victory against Francesco Daros, who have offered some impressive online performances against well-known players from over the world. For example, he had beaten former BDO World Master Adam Smith-Neale and reached the quarter finals in an event including several former PDC tour card holders, which meant he had to withdraw from the Italian Championship.

The battle for the last two play-offs spots was very close. Vigato, for example, might have missed it if he hadn’t beaten Francesco Daros. Samuele Casotto in his turn was very luck Daros lost against the Italian champion. Therefore Casotto narrowly claimed the fourth spot with 23 points, while Francesco Daros just missing out of the play-offs with 22 points. Casotto had among others victories against Francesco Daros (7-3) and, as noted above, Danilo Vigato (7-4) during the league phase. Casotto had a draw against Daniele Petri as well. In the end his 7-3 loss against Nicola Giovannini, at that moment one of the players who had a good chance of reaching the play-offs, wasn’t crucial.

The fact that Francesco Daros, who have had some impressive online performances, just ended fifth in the Italian Super Premier League shows the quality of dart players in Italy at the minute. Certainly if we realise Stefano Tomassetti and Andrea Micheletti, who represented Italy at the PDC World Cup 2019 offering a real contest against Canada, weren’t in the Italian Super Premier League. For example, he had beaten former BDO World Master Adam Smith-Neale and reached the quarter finals in an event including several former PDC tour card holders, which meant he had to withdraw from the Italian Championship.

All players play a number of matches a week, but are free to arrange a day and time for the matches. That explains that in the results below some players appear sometimes a couple of times in a few matches and thereafter not for a while.

I'm a huge dartsfan and started, because in my opinion darts media are focusing to much on the highlights and well known players and countries of the darting world. Therefore I want to pay more attention to the dart players and countries throughout Europe.
