WATCH: Van Gerwen hits two incredible nine darters
Fellow Premier League contender Gary Anderson ended van Gerwen's 45 match winning streak last week after a 6-6 draw.
Van Gerwen will face Jelle Klaasen in Leeds on February 16th, as the two Dutchmen come face to face in the Premier League.
16-time world champion Phil Taylor was the other player to hit a pair during his victory over James Wade in the 2010 Premier League Darts final.
In typical Taylor fashion, he looked calmer than ever as he stepped up to complete his second, and most impressive, nine darter. "I've won every title in the PDC and I don't think I can ever do better than this" Taylor said after the match.
