Share this post with friends

Luke Littler beat Rob Cross in Gliwice to claim his second World Series of Darts title winning the 2024 Poland Darts Masters on Saturday. 

In his 3rd consecutive World Series of Darts finals in as many weeks, Rob Cross was coming into this with form and confidence. 

That wasn’t enough however as the newly crowned Premier League champion, Luke Littler, stormed to victory with an 8-3 win over Cross. 

The win sees Luke Littler win 50% of the tournament he’s played in during the 2024 World Series of Darts campaign in a dream debut year that just isn’t showing signs of slowing down for ‘The Nuke’.

2024 Poland Darts Masters Review

The PreZero Arena in Gliwice, Poland, saw 9,000 fans attend for the second night of the 2024 Poland Darts Masters in what was a Premier League level attendance. 

The quarter-finals set the stage for a quality standard of darts on Saturday. The first game of the night saw Littler beat Peter Wright 6-3, despite Wright registering a 109.73 average (not even the highest of the night). 

Michael Van Gerwen took that honour with a 6-0 demolition of surprise quarter-finalist Boris Krcmar, hitting a 109.98 average in classic flat-track bully fashion. 

Luke Humphries will be disappointed with his World Series of Darts campaign so far, the World No1 was dumped out in the quarter-finals by Michael Smith in a closely contested match which Smith took 6-5.

Elsewhere Rob Cross defeated Stephen Bunting 6-4 to continue his path to consecutive World Series Finals. 

Cross then easily (and surprisingly) dispatched of MVG 7-2, whereas Littler had a much trickier route to the final. He narrowly beat Michael Smith 7-6 with Smith missing match darts in a nervy encounter. 

A highlight being a 137 checkout at 5-4 down hitting treble 19, bull, bull. A finish that would have surely rocked Smith and proved pivotal in securing the win. 

The final was a much more comfortable showing from ‘The Nuke’. A 101.84 average, 164 checkout and a 66.67% checkout rate meant he was just too much for an inform Cross to contend with and ultimately won 8-3. 

Speaking after the win Littler said: 

“I’m delighted to get the win, it’s an amazing feeling to lift trophies in front of massive crowds.

“I love playing in big arenas in front of thousands of people; I didn’t expect 9,000 people in here tonight, it’s just incredible.

“I want to win as much as I can; the first six months of the year have been really good and I can’t wait for the second half of the season.”

In an unbelievable debut campaign, Littler has now won the Bahrain Master, PC1, Belgian Open, Austrian Open, Premier League and now the Poland Masters and we’re only halfway through the year!
