The full results from the Auckland Darts Masters, which took place at the Trusts Arena from August 3-5.

The fourth World Series of Darts event of the year took place in Auckland, with Kyle Anderson bidding to defend the title he won so dramatically 12 months ago.

Michael van Gerwen was the favourite to bounce back from a disappointing World Matchplay, where he exited in the first round, while the Blackpool champion Gary Anderson was also in the star-studded field.

Look back on how the ITV4-televised event unfolded with the full draw, schedule, results and odds.
