James reached the semi-final of the HappyBet European Darts Trophy at the weekend. James was forced to miss the precious Euro Tour event, as he recovered from a virus picked up in Australia. On Saturday James had to dig deep against Justin Pipe, and that’s what the Machine did. James won a deciding leg to take the match 6-5.
On a busy final day, it was Andy Jenkins first for James, as the world number 6 saw off Jenkins 6-3. In the quarter-finals, it was Michael Smith up next for James, and this was a huge game as Michael is only just behind James in the world rankings. James was cool calm and collected like normal. All 11 legs went with the throw as James won 6-5, putting further space between him and Smith in the rankings.
In the semi-final, James would lose out to Mensur Suljovic 6-3. Overall it was a fantastic weekend for James, after being taken ill in Australia. James will be back in Germany this weekend, for the final in this treble header of European Tour events. So remember folks all over the weekend its #TeamWade
