In an exciting final  number 1 in the world and runner up of the MariFlex 2012 edition, Stephen Bunting, was crowned champion  of the 7th International MariFlex Open Darts Tournament. In this final Bunting showed why he is the best player in the world and did not give his opponent Geert De Vos from Belgium much glorious moments in this game.

The Belgian played good in this tournament , and on his way to the finale he defeated players as Martin Atkins and the Ross Montgomery.  Stephen Bunting ended the dream of  Benito van de Pas to obtain the title in his home country. Stephen won the semi final against Benito 2-0 in sets.

And also the final Stephen Bunting was supreme. However he lost the first leg of the first set, Stephen leveled the set and to 1-1. The next two legs went with the darts but in the fifth and deciding  leg Stephen was the first to find a double for the set. In the  two subsequent sets Geert de Vos  lost 3-1 and 3-0 and became Stephen  the new 2013 International  MariFlex Dart Open Champion.

Stephen Bunting also won a ticket for the Zuiderduin Masters, but  he already  assured of participation because as the reigning Zuiderduin Masters champion he comes the Egmond to defend his  title.
The English Deta Hedman, winner of last years ladies tournament again reached the final of the tournament. This time her opponent was compatriot Rachel Brooks and Rachel made it very hard for Deta to become champion for the second timein a row. Not in the first set which Deta won in 3 clear legs but in the second Rachel stroke back by winning this set in 3-0.

In the third and deciding set  Deta even was 0-1 but recovered it immediately by leveling the set and then winning the next two to win her second MariFlex Open title in a row.
