MARTIN Adams held off an attempted comeback by Dave Chisnall to claim his second BDO world title with a 7-5 victory in the 2010 Lakeside final.

Adams, champion in 2007, stormed into a three-set lead, and was also 4-2 up, but could only look on as Chisnall found his doubles to draw level at 4-4.

Aided by a 170 checkout and a ten-dart finish, Adams again moved clear, only for Chisnall to bring it back to 5-6.

But Adams held his nerve to win through in the 12th and end Chisnall's resolve.

It completed a fantastic tournament for the Peterborough player in his record 17th consecutive appearance at Lakeside, and he can add the coveted BDO title to the World Masters trophy he won in September.

The unseeded Chisnall, though, can hold his head equally high after another brave performance.
