Michele Turetta claims Italian Super Premier League title

Saturday 4th of July the Italian Super Premier League Finals took place. During the Italian Super Premier, organised by Jacopo Ghirardon, 16 of the best players from Italy competed against each other for one of the four spots for the Finals Night. The Italian Super Premier League Finals was the first time darts was being played offline in Italy for the first time since the COVID19 outbreak. The matches of this night can be watched back on the Facebookpage Diddle for the Middle.

Italian champion Danilo Vigato, who ended third in the league, and Francesco Daros, who ended fifth in the league, had to withdraw. Therefore Nicola Giovannini, who ended sixth in the regular league, could, just as at the Italian Championship when Francesco Daros had to withdraw because of him reaching the quarter finals of an international online event including some players well-known from the PDC, take part in the finals of this event. Michele Turetta, Daniele Petri and Samuele Casotto ensured themselves of a spot in the Italian Super Premier League Finals by ending in the top four of the league.

In the first semi final Michele Turetta who won thirteen of his fifteen games having a draw against Alessio Passadore and a loss during an impressive display by Danilo Vigato played against Nicola Giovannini. Turetta was simply too good for Giovannini and won 10-4.

Samuele Casotto took an early lead against Daniele Petri after checking 74 twice in the first three legs. Petri however won six legs in a row to take a 7-2 lead and from that point on he took the 10-4 win.

In the final therefore the two best players of the league met. Daniele Petri took a 6-4 lead, but Michele Turetta showed what he is capable of by claiming a 11-8 victory. And Michele Turetta is thus the first Italian Super Premier League champion.

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.
