Luke Humphries reached his first PDC television final after defeating the 2020 UK Open champion Michael van Gerwen 11: 5 in the semi-finals in Milton Keynes

Humphries shot in more than four tons against MVG and never slacked off to reserve his spot in the final

Two-time UK Open Champion James Wade faces Humphries for the grand prize of 100000 pounds after beating World Number 1 Gerwyn Price

Wade opened a 5-0 lead against current world champion Price and never looked back After an 11: 6 win, he looked to his third UK Open final

On the way to the semi-finals, Humphries beat Dave Chisnall in the final round, shooting three tons more than 112, 132 at the bull and 108, which also included two breaks from throwing

Van Gerwen responded with a break of his own after Humphries missed the chance to make it 5-0. ‘Cool Hand Luke’ opened a five-leg lead before MVG brought the Bulls to 7-3 in the second break with 132 points

Humphries, a former world youth champion, went within a leg of victory with a 128 finish and slammed the door to MVG waiting for 68 to clean up

After the break, Humphries only needed one leg to take the biggest win of his young career and reach his first PDC television final, in which he will play Wade

Wade, who produced a vintage performance against Simon Whitlock earlier in the day, galloped the first five legs, including two breaks in the second and fourth legs

‘The Machine’ opened a 7-1 lead averaging over 100 before Price hit legs in a row to give a glimmer of hope for the second interval

After a shot with 162 shots, Wade had only 20 minutes to clean up within two legs of the win, and a ton of box office in the next leg put one foot in the final

World Number One Price, who previously defeated Devon Petersen in the quarterfinals, had too much to do as Wade took an 11-6 win and secured his spot in his first UK Open final since 2011
