Unicorn star Michael Smith will begin his defence of the Gibraltar Darts Trophy on Saturday against either Jermaine Wattimena or a Host Nation Qualifier.

Unibet Premier League runner-up Smith claimed his fourth European Tour title at last year’s event, defeating Mensur Suljovic 6-4 in the final – players pictured.

Smith has picked up two ProTour titles so far in 2018 as well as reaching the final of the German Darts Open in April and begins his bid for a first European Tour title of the year on Saturday night at the second round stage.

Other Team Unicorn players competing in Gibraltar are James Wade, Ian White, Chris Dobey and Joe Cullen.

The Gibraltar Darts Trophy will be broadcast throughout the weekend for PDCTV-HD Subscribers, and through a series of bookmakers' websites worldwide.
