Gerwyn Price has succeeded in his appeal for a reduced fine after being punished for his conduct in the 2018 Grand Slam of Darts.
Back in January, the Welshman was slapped with the unprecedented punishment of £21,500 by the Darts Regulation Authority, which also included a three-month suspended sentence, after it was deemed his actions during his controversial final victory over Gary Anderson - and also in his last-eight encounter against Simon Whitlock - "were very serious and went beyond what was acceptable" and that he was "overly aggressive in his behaviour in his matches".
Price, who become the crowd's pantomime villain since that unforgettable night in Wolverhampton, was fined £8,000 for the quarter-final, £12,000 for the final and a further £1,500 for his social media comments, to go with a suspended three-month ban which expired in July having not been triggered.
Now that fine has been reduced by £10,000 - despite three members of a panel ruling that "completely without merit and contradicted by the papers in the case" after both match-specific amounts were halved.
"I was shocked at what had happened, not only that I had a fine but that Gary [Anderson] had absolutely nothing," Price told the Darts Show podcast earlier this year.
Price went on to stress that any fine would be unacceptable to him, but is yet to comment publicly following the decision which was confirmed on Monday and included an expected contribution of £2,325.24 towards the cost of the appeal.
