Thrilling Final of World Darts Championship -2008

It was real fun watching the much tensed final of World Darts Championship.

Phil Taylor of England, won the match in a sudden-death leg against Michael van Gerwen of the Netherlands. I really thought Gerwen is going away with the championship when he got the Bulls-eye to throw first in the sudden-death leg. But he threw the chance away and handed over the championship to Taylor, the legend, 13 time world champion.
