In the deciding set — which had to be won by two clear legs until the eleventh leg was reached — Cross missed a match-winning dart at the bull with the score at 3—2, before van Gerwen won two legs in succession to take a 5—4 lead.
With both players under pressure, van Gerwen missed five darts to win the tenth leg, before Cross hit a double 18 to force a sudden death leg.
Both Cross and van Gerwen missed match darts at double 16 before Cross hit double 8 to qualify for the final in his debut entry,  becoming the first player to make the final on his debut since Kirk Shepherd in Rob Cross held the first set 3—1, and broke in the second set by the same scoreline, before winning the third set 3—0.
Taylor scored his first set with a 3—0 win in the fourth, before missing a dart at double twelve for a potential perfect nine-dart leg in the first leg of the fifth set.
