Jeff was among one of the OVER 170 players who competed for places in the William Hill North American Championship and William Hill US Darts Masters in the Qualifiers on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The PDC's World Series of Darts returned to Las Vegas, with the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino hosting eight of the world's top stars as well as the cream of north American talent.

Two days of qualifying tournaments, with two knockouts per day, ended with eight players progressing to compete on the big stage from Thursday to Saturday.

Thursday saw the North American Championship take place as the eight US and Canadian qualifiers faced off for that title and a place in the William Hill World Darts Championship.

The eight players then returned to the stage on Friday to take on the eight PDC stars in the two-day US Darts Masters, which concludes with the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final on Saturday.

Jeff won the William Hill North American Championship with a memorable 6-4 defeat of John Norman Jnr in Thursday's final at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

The big-stage action in Las Vegas began as New Brunswick's Smith scooped the $10,000 title and a place in the William Hill World Darts Championship.

The 42-year-old had come through the qualifiers earlier in the week despite a flight cancellation meaning that he was only able to fly in to Las Vegas on Tuesday morning.

However, he showed his class to succeed Willard Bruguier as the North American Champion with some gutsy displays.

He firstly came from 2-0 down to defeat Ross Snook 6-5 in the quarter-finals, surviving one missed match dart from his fellow Canadian before prevailing in the deciding leg.

Smith then defeated American youngster Danny Lauby 6-3 in the semi-finals before overcoming Canada's Norman Jnr in the final.

Newfoundland's Norman Jnr had come from 3-1 down to level the tie, but a superb 121 checkout from Smith edged him back ahead .

Norman hit back on double five to keep his hopes alive, but Smith sealed glory with a fine 108 checkout to capture the biggest title of his career.

Jeff was amongst the final six players to seal places in the William Hill North American Championship and US Darts Masters as the qualifiers concluded on Wednesday.

Smith defeated David Cameron 4-2 in their Qualifier Three final as he sealed his spot on stage at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

The Canadian ace - a former Lakeside Championship finalist and PDC Tour Card Holder - won his opening four games without dropping a leg as he defeated Tim Mitchell, Darryl Norman, Derek Hanley and Shawn Burt.

He then overcame Willy Walker and Ross Snook with a 4-2 margin of victory before repeating that scoreline against Cameron.

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN will begin his defence of the William Hill US Darts Masters title against new William Hill North American Championship winner Jeff Smith in Las Vegas on Friday.

The PDC World Series of Darts event will see eight north American qualifiers taking on eight top stars over the two days at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

Reigning champion Van Gerwen, who claimed last year's inaugural title in Las Vegas by defeating Daryl Gurney in the final, will meet Smith in a tasty opening fixture.

Canada's Smith tasted victory in Thursday's North American Championship, scooping a $10,000 top prize and a place in the William Hill World Darts Championship, and will be on a high as he takes on the world number one.

Reigning champion Michael van Gerwen made a merciless start to his title defence, 

Canada's Smith had won Thursday's North American Championship, but was brought back to earth with a bump as Van Gerwen averaged 101.33, restricting his opponent to just three darts at a double.

"It was a good start for me," said Van Gerwen. "I took my chances and did what I had to do to win this game. Jeff is a good player but he couldn't do something special like he did yesterday
