Re: NDB vote NOT to apply for BDO points-CONFIRMED HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

For 2020, aside from the Dutch Open, which has already been removed from the BDO calendar, I don't think much will change, except that there seem to be more tournaments that have applied for both BDO and WDF points. After that, who knows? The World Trophy and Masters are now both in the diary with c...

Re: BDO Cash Grab! - now embarassingly retracted

I don't see the big issue in terms of which tournaments to play. Most tournaments carry both BDO and WDF points, so no need for players to choose one over the other. If you don't get through Q-School (or don't go) then play the tournaments that make sense for you - even if you aim more for BDO point...

The holy grail 10% has been reached :) Hallelujah!! Although the claim will be that the capacity is no longer the same now that the balcony is closed off... Can kind of agree with that if they have 500-1000 in and no balcony will look respectable. I agree, the weekend/Friday sessions will look fine...

Re: The now Unofficial and Unsanctioned BDO "Worlds" Tickets 2020 Updates

re ticket sales. I had a look today and as mentioned, the first 2 rows of tables at the front are now available for first weekend all day tickets, but the rest of the week those 24 tables are still blocked off. (these are the 'Jackie' tickets) but anyway, as far as I can tell all the balcony seats ...

Letter now on WDF website - Heather can stop worrying about the leak now!

They have removed reference to the World Champs and World Masters from Clause 2.07 of their new ranking rules.

Tommy and The lapdog have a lot to answer for endorsing Jacklin, they where warned about him, but no, they knew best and now are partly responsible for the current debacle. Well done Tommy and Rover, well done indeed! yep well done. Now England darts have authority over events played in England. Th...

As the other side of the BDO continues its march to oblivion, the BICC trundles on. Lots of good performances at the weekend, the highest number of 90+ averages for a weekend since at least 2015/16. Ginge can find the polar opposite in Scotland as usual :) : Name County Team Average Score Nick Fullw...

Apologies, adding a 0 in - make that just over £60,000, and ignore the last bit of my previous message!

Re: BDO Cash Grab!

Looking at the prize money for ranking events in 2019, for the men it was approx £430,000, for the women £190,000, which means the 5% levy would have raised £31,000. The player levy will raise far more - there are approx 110 ranking tournaments, excluding special events, and if you assume 300 entrie...

Re: BDO Cash Grab!

Dutch open will be about £10k as a rough guess with 5% paid and £2 from every entry. I have said for years countries should pay to have BDO points, It makes business sense to me, But they have never done this. Making the £2 levy is the BDO's way of trying to compete with the WDF IMO as I feel there...
