Michael van Gerwen defeated Andy Hamilton 6-1 in the final of the sixth Players Championship event of the year at the K2 Centre in Crawley.

The victory marked the world number two's 12th victory of an incredible 2013 so far, and took him above £100,000 prize money won this year in ProTour events alone.

Van Gerwen, who reached the last four of Saturday's Players Championship, began his run to victory with a 6-2 win over Kevin Dowling before edging out Welshman Richie Burnett in a deciding leg to reach the last 16.

The Dutchman powered into the semi-finals as he defeated Ronny Huybrechts 6-0 before dropping just one leg to Andy Smith at the last eight stage.

In his semi-final clash against Brendan Dolan, van Gerwen found himself 5-2 down but took the next three legs to level, which included a missed dart at double 12 for a nine-darter in the ninth leg.

Van Gerwen then took the deciding leg to deny the Dolan a place in the final, and he continued that good form in the decider with Hamilton's only respite the seventh leg.

The Dutch ace struck double 10 to end the match with an average of 104.25 as he claimed the £10,000 first prize.
