The full results from the Sky Sports-televised BoyleSports World Grand Prix darts, which took place at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin from October 6-12.

The 2019 edition of the PDC's third longest-running televised event behind the World Championship and World Matchplay is over, with defending champion Michael van Gerwen lifting the trophy for a fifth time after beating Dave Chisnall.

This set-play major has produced many upsets down the years due largely to its unique format, which requires players to start and finish all legs with a double, and there's been no shortage of drama this year.

Here, you can look back on how the event unfolded with the full results and daily reviews, while we also have details of the Sky Bet odds, prize money and a look back at past winners.

What TV channel is the World Grand Prix on?

This is one of the majors broadcast live on Sky Sports, whose coverage begins at 1900 BST every night except the final, which starts at 2000 BST.

World Grand Prix: Sky Bet odds

Michael van Gerwen is favourite to win his fifth World Grand Prix title at a Price Boosted 13/8 with Sky Bet but he's never successfully defended his title.

The world number won, who triumphed here in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018, is followed in the betting by World Matchplay champion Rob Cross and his old rival Gary Anderson - both of whom are 10/1.

Two-time World Grand Prix champion James Wade is one of only three plays in the field who knows what it's like to lift this prestigious trophy and he can be backed at 22/1 while the other - Daryl Gurney - is 16/1.

World Grand Prix: Seedings and qualifiers

The world's top 16 players qualified by right alongside 16 qualifiers from the one-year ProTour Order of Merit to compete in Dublin.

UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall will make his debut, alongside Krzysztof Ratajski, Glen Durrant, Jamie Hughes, Chris Dobey and Dimitri Van den Bergh.

Michael van Gerwen is unsurprisingly the top seed, while former winners Daryl Gurney (third) and James Wade (eighth) are also among the eight seeded players.

World Matchplay winner Rob Cross is seeded second, with former finalist Gary Anderson the fourth seed, World Championship finalist Michael Smith seeded fifth, Grand Slam of Darts champion Gerwyn Price seeded sixth and 2018 runner-up Peter Wright seeded seventh.

Aspinall is joined amongst the PDC Order of Merit qualifiers by 2019 European Tour event winners Ian White, Mensur Suljovic, Dave Chisnall and Joe Cullen, as well as 2010 World Grand Prix finalist Adrian Lewis.

2012 Dublin runner-up Mervyn King and World Youth Champion Van den Bergh held on to claim the final two ProTour Order of Merit qualifying spots.

Durrant joins two former winners of that event, Steve Beaton and Stephen Bunting, Germany's Max Hopp and Dutch quartet Jermaine Wattimena, Jeffrey de Zwaan, Danny Noppert and Vincent van der Voort as qualifiers.

Scotland's John Henderson will be returning to the venue where he enjoyed a memorable run to the 2017 semi-finals, including a win over Van Gerwen during that career-best televised finish.

World Grand Prix History

The World Grand Prix is one of the PDC tour's major events and takes place in Dublin every October. It is the only televised event in which players must start and finish each leg on a double or the bullseye.

Its unique format adds an extra dimension when it comes to betting, with darts punters often preferring to back who they feel is a better 'finisher' rather than those renowned for heavy scoring.

The World Grand Prix was first held in Rochester, Kent in 1998 before switching to County Wexford two years later but in 2001 the event moved to its current home at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin.

Phil Taylor is the most successful player in the history of the straight knockout competition with 11 titles to his name but the 'Power' has also suffered four defeats in the first-round, which all came as relief to the bookies.

Daryl Gurney (2017), Alan Warriner (2001), Colin Lloyd (2004), James Wade (2007 & 2010), Michael van Gerwen (2012, 2014 & 2016) and Robert Thornton, who upset the odds to beat 'Mighty Mike' in 2015, are the other champions of the World Grand Prix.
