World champion Luke Humphries produces some of his best form since his triumph at Alexandra Palace to win Week Six of the Premier League in Brighton.

Luke Humphries has catapulted himself up to second in the Premier League standings with victory on Week Six in Brighton.

The world champion began the night down in sixth spot, a consequence of just one runner-up finish in the opening five weeks, but he was back to his majestic best on Thursday.

Humphries commenced his efforts on the South Coast with a 6-2 victory over Gerwyn Price, averaging 105.5, before he came through a quite outrageous match with Rob Cross with a 113.71 average.

Cross posted 108 in a 6-3 defeat, highlighting how well the world number one was performing, and a 101.04 average was enough for Humphries to beat Michael Smith 6-3 in the final.

With Michael van Gerwen losing the opening match of the night to Cross by a 6-2 scoreline, Humphries now sits just three points adrift of the Dutchman who leads the way.

Semi-final appearances for Cross and Luke Littler mean that they sit in a share of third position, with Smith only fifth despite reaching the final.

Smith came through a last-leg decider with Peter Wright in his last-eight contest before impressively disposing of Littler 6-3 after the 17-year-old had defeated Nathan Aspinall by the same scoreline.
