The former Premier League star edged out Ryan Meikle on Leg Difference to top the league table, with the pair ending the night with two victories apiece.
Klaasen picked up wins over Northern Ireland’s Gavin Carlin and Germany’s Gabriel Clemens, while Meikle defeated the Dutchman and Carlin on the night.
Clemens had opened proceedings with a 5-3 win over Meikle, but a 5-4 loss to Carlin in his final contest ended the German Darts Masters finalist’s hopes of victory.
