heres a curve ball, the pdc the p stands for professional but all players arnt professional so like the bdo they are not wholly professional, of course the backroom staff at pdc towers ,head of admin, head of media, commercial manager are professionals on salaried jobs probably, is that what the professional stands for cos certainly a lot of players are not, so like the bdo dropping there professional title surely the pdc should do the same, yes they have better players but most tourneys they run are not full of wholly professional players some are but most are not thats all from pedantic corner off to lakeside
only85 resurrecting one of ifm's favourite straw men, there.

edit: Zapp beat me to it.

It's not the P that should be the sticking point it the C.
It's an English company so it should be really.

Anyway...

UK Q School numbers now at 250. A mere 600 less than Oche stated the total was a week ago :roll:

sounds like a lot fewer 'chancers' are going for it these days. Should be high quality

and could be a few more of the Europeans ones get through if the ratio doesnt get much bigger.

Not yet, it depends on final numbers.

Well, they increased the price last year and with the BDO rule change there are expected to be more of the top BDO players. Should be a particularly tough year.

But maybe it's just that as the youth development is maturing, players are getting more realistic about their chances.

OK, its JUST UNDER 600 less than Oche said ;-)

Lets be pedantic and say its between 551 and 599 less.

She has zero chance of getting through. If she does go fair play to her hopefully more ladies will give it a go.

Wonder how many are going to QS to try for a card and how many just want to play the Challenge Tour.

Wow, 8 more Pro Tour events, that is a lot of money to play for.
The prize money is crazy, £14m, no one thought it could get to that. To think 3 or 4 years ago people were saying the bubble had burst!

Just the 9 events with more prize money than lakeside.

They replaced the UK Open Qualifiers with more Players Championship events.
Pretty much, those _30_ Players Championship floor events each have more prize money than the BDO events other than the World Championship.

Of course, to get good money you have to beat better players, but a player who on average wins 1 match per Players Championship will earn at least £15k without setting foot on a single stage.

Add another £1k if they win their first game at the UK Open.

That's a pretty decent foundation to allow people to try to become full-time professionals.

TBF you are a fair bit older than him and didn’t have the world youth champion tag hanging over you so understandable your loving it a bit more :grin:
