Hes a tit. He still needs to hit the double to win the leg (Ronnie missing the last black of a 147 on purpose would still win him the frame) so he may as well go for it.

Is the correct answer.

The prize money pot was boosted at the expense of the 9 darts prizes. As he hoovers up a huge chunk of that ,hes actually taking it from the lesser players that hit 9 darters on the ProTour.

To save money World Snooker stopped the individual 147 prize.

Now there’s a £1m prize pot but it’s only paid out for 20+ 147s in the 1 year tour season (snookers not a calendar year as the season ends at the WC in May). Then if 20+ the pot is shared by all those making it. So if 21 147s each gets 1/21 of the pot. If you made 3 of those you get your 3 shares so 3/21.

Only point is I think maximum 147# in a season in past is only something like 12 so never likely to be paid out.

Is why O’Sullivan deliberately messed a 147 up right at the end as said he wouldn’t be paid for it and others doing the same.

So saves the organisers money but must be a negative for fans and the venue and TV viewers with most players now not bothering.

But it’s a gold coloured one as was on TV :)
The rest get silver colour for been made on floor tournaments.

I presume the ET and televised board at the PC are still silver as not real TV ?

ET events count as streamed. Only TV Majors get the gold ones. In bold in the list in this article.

A 9-darter is worth one leg.

Thank you, Bertrand Russell.

Will you be along later to explain that a 147 break is worth one frame?

I think everyone sees it’s easier to hit 9 darters on today’s boards. Go back to 2002 sized segments and their would be a prize for a 9 darter.

Except it isnt. Once you get to 80+ points the frame is won.

2002 was a vintage year for the 9er. 5 in total.
The previous 3 years there was just one.

And yet even with the ridiculous Winmau/180 segments it doesn't happen in the BDO.

How can this be?

That's a bit of a whoosh. We're saying completing a 9 gets 1 leg just like completing a 147 gets 1 frame.
