Re: Idea to improve Q School

Uncle Barry has always used the golf analogy to describe darts ("working mans golf"), so did some research. Clearly money levels are vastly higher in golf, but interesting how it's structured. PGA Tour -No longer has a Q School with direct entry onto the Main Tour. -Q School since 2013 acts as entr...

Re: Darts in the media

Apart from about 3 matches the standard at the women's world's was shocking and apart from Lisa on the first 2 days the women were shocking at q school so Barry would be mad to entertain a full women's tour on the evidence they put in front of him https://leaderboard.dartconnect.com/leaderboard#t-t...

Re: PDC Challenge Tour 2020

I can see the PDC have a problem with the potential attendance at Challenge tour if the entries exceed what is manageable, it is ok saying double the dates available, but that doubles the costs of hiring venue, paying staff moving equipment on what for the PDC is really not a priority.

Nick Kenny said he was playing in this a couple of days ago.. His last appearance as a BDO player he said...
Someone probably needs to tell him the PDC rules then.
What's the deadline on signing the PDC contract?

1) PC 1 is February 6th
2) WDF-only event, not BDO.

With the BDO not offering points, what's the WDF policy on PDC players playing in this?
Don't care.
But the PDC does.

Re: Sparky

Wesley Harms is 35. Has a few good years to come. No bottle, but will be suited to the anonymity of being a journeyman in the PDC and I think he'll have enough good days to survive. Top 64, but maybe only for a few years. There are a few more players who look like they'll drop out of the top 64 so t...

Re: Idea to improve Q School

I would like to see an increase to 256 Tour Card-holders. Top 192 keeps card. With about 64 Tour Cards you can do a lot more in terms of rewarding affiliated tours. Why would the PDC dilute both the quality, and competitiveness of their premier Darts Tour. The Pro Tour represents the cream of the a...

Re: PDC Challenge Tour 2020

Be interesting how many of the ladies attend Challege Tour. Not a cheap weekend for them trying to play if they dont have sponsors and some also clash with WDF/BDO events which they will still need to play. How does it work out costs wise to say a weekend on the Isle Of Man ? Surely it must be more...

That would have ruled out Jim Williams entering this year as he played QS last year and played 0 challenge Tours... And he failed to win a card again this year so what would of been the difference ? Nothing.. Just he'd have been barred from even having another go which would have been ridiculous. N...

Re: Road to the O2, The unofficial/unsanctioned 2021 BDO World Championships

Mitchell has to be favourite now. Unless he decides to compete on the Challenge Tour. The BDO boys do the averages on the floor when they are not burnt out. So expect some of them to rise to the top of the CT tour's rankings, if they can be bothered. Williams, Mitchell and Vandenbogaerde failed, an...

So if I’m right of the top of my head 6 players came through.
UK:
Ashton
Hamilton
Kenny
Waites

EU:
Harms
Kleermaker

Telnekes didn't play at the O2, but he did play in the 2018 and 2019 BDO World Championships. So more generally I'd say 7 BDO players.
