Welsh Gerwyn Price eventually won the Hungarian Darts Trophy, the first-ever Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) event held in Hungary. The weekend-long tournament reportedly was a success. Here is a collection of the best photos.

PDC’s first visit to Hungary reportedly proved hugely successful, including a 4,500-member crowd on Sunday evening in Budapest’s Papp László Sports Arena.

The tournament didn’t fall short of thrills and exciting games, with stars like Michael van Gerwen, Nathan Aspinall, James Wade, and Rob Cross all knocked out in the round of 16.

Four Hungarians had the chance to participate in the event. Sadly enough, all of them were beaten in the first round, with János Végső only narrowly losing against Joe Murnan.
