Re: Will Barney qualify for this years Matchplay?

As a tour card holder he gets the guaranteed space at UK Open but that is almost certainly it for ranked tournaments. Only possibility is the Grand Slam but that relies on MvG picking him as 2nd player and then getting to finals of World Cup. Remember only the top ranked player in a country gets the...

Re: Bauhaus Dutch Open 1-3 Feb, 2019 - Assen, NL

Adams seems completely passed it. Some kid had match dart against him. This was last 2000 round ! As said Adams scrapes over the line with a bull final.dart with the kid on d18 for the win. Adams must have missed at least 10 earlier match darts. Rubbish from both players. It seems more went in 1 or ...

2019 Q-School

Q School gets many of us fairly excited, but I have to say, like qualification for WSOD finals, GSOD and even the World Champs, it can come down to having a good run on the day, rather than the best players making it. The OOM does something to help level things out, but personally, I would like to ...

Re: 2019 Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships 5-13 Jan 2019

A great day of darts yesterday, some upsets and close games, good presentation and a good crowd in. My only complaint at the moment would be the scores graphic. I was watching on my tablet and black on red is nigh impossible to see. You did see they fixed that to white on black very quickly after c...

Take it challenge tour members being allowed to play is a new thing?
Read the link.
Anyone without a Tour Card can go the amateur route including failed Q School entrants.

Re: 2019 BDO world championship schedule

Confirmed on the website that it will all be shown on the BDO youtube channel. It doesn't say it will be restricted geographically but I imagine it would be? Haven’t Eurosport said they will only screen on TV in UK, Ireland, Holland and Australia. Not sure if they will offer on Eurosport Player in ...

Re: The 2019 Season

One big downside from Jacklins change in rules to allow BDO players at QC is if lots go and dont get cards. Then assuming the best like Durrant and Waites have gone all the BDO has is a bunch of players who have shown they arent good enough to get into the PDC. Not great when he wants to attract ne...

Re: 2019 PDC World Championship- Alexandra Palace, London-13th December 2018- 1st January 2019

Think there will still be a good 3-4million watching in Europe tonight. Uncle Barry was hinting about the growth of (non) linear platforms and the way that has enhanced darts. Giving BBC America streaming rights in the US and them putting on their YouTube channel must massively increase viewers. Al...

PDC Order of Merit

So Smith will end the year 6th or 3rd. I kinda agree with the comments on twitter last night that the OOM needs looking at, maybe a 1 year rolling or something. Are the best players in the world currently ? 1 - MVG 2 - Cross 3 - Wright 4 - Ando 5 - Gurney 6 - Smith 7 - Price 8 - Sulovic 9 - Whitloc...

Re: 2019 Q-School

Entry for the European Qualifying School closes 2pm tomorrow UK time. Not sure why it needs to close so soon and why the event can't be played alongside the UK event because surely they'll have no idea how many cards are going to be available. It starts on 3rd January hence why closing tomorrow. I ...

Re: Van Barneveld Announces Retirement Plans (PDC announcement)

Surely if he want Pro Tour ranking money for that OOM it would be better for him to do the Euro Tour. Most events are in Germany so he could drive or be driven rather than fly. Also the European qualifiers are much less challenging that even the 1st round of Pro Tours where being unseeded he could ...

Re: PDC Order of Merit

Think Mensur will be worried for his PL place now. Remember though this is all about selling on TV. He’s the top rated German speaker and the others haven’t really done much either this year. Therefore more valuable for marketing than players like Chisnall or Wade. If they are looking to eliminate ...

Re: PDC Order of Merit

I thought it was confirmed by Hearn that the top ranked player for a country gets the invite and then they choose their partner irrespective of rankings.

Wasn’t it changed after the Anderson & Wright and MVG & Klassen issues.

Re: European tour qualifiying

So if your a Brit and not a tour card holder you can’t enter these now? The European (though only west and south regions) tour card holders have there own qualifier for six spaces? But then can’t enter the regional qualifier Where would say Labanauskas or Ratajski play if they are tour card holders...
