Smith-Neale wins 4-3
It was 5-3 Oche but a great final
How many did you get? 97 in Chorlton. Miles less than I expected.
181 entered Rout but only 144 turned up
At least they werent midnight affairs.

I decided to go to Coventry Rileys for an afternoon of darts voyeurism. The moment I stepped inside the venue I was met with extreme heat conditions on what was one of the coldest days of the year. I watched from afar as Paul Hogan won his prelim match with ease then I immediately exited the oven. Who in their right mind thinks playing in these conditions is ok with an event lasting 10+ hrs? Some of these Riley venues are a joke. More room in a phone box. Well done to Adam on qualifying...a seasoned hardcore drinking endurance champion.

Same

Tbf the independent pool and snooker places are thriving now, just don’t see a national chain making much money

The pub that was a Riley’s in town is now ran by a guy that loves his games. has the county pool side there, 2 pool leagues, a snooker league, 2 weekly darts competitions, monthly opens and cheap beer. Every Ppv boxing on a ticketed event as well

Went there for the weekly ko a few months back when I got back playing and it was one of the most well run tournaments I’ve played in. 6 boards, each board a group of 4 players that played each other in a round robin, winners and runners up went to knockouts, 3rd place went to a 9 darts shoutout . Was there 3 hours and got 5 games in.
They’ve failed because their prices were ridiculous.

Maybe I dreamt that. I remember not being able to get on a board as they were "all booked" one night in Crewe. Not for comps either.
Maybe that's where my confusion arose.

We certainly booked the ones in Leicester for the gathering a few years ago. I thought we paid for the privilege as well.

Ours use to charge in birkenhead, town centre surrounded by loads of pubs with boards, lasted about 18 months or so.

Think they were asking about £3 an hour. Plus expensive drinks etc, only ever played in there as an away player so not 2 bad.
