You do realise you have to get a tour card first.
If you can’t win one then your not a top player anyway. Plus if you fail you still have challenge tour/development (if young enough) plus if your European like him then some ET qualifiers.

Exactly so if you fail then you can both pdc and BDO events like Waites will be doing this year after his pathetic attempt to win a card. Alternatively you can do a Jamie Hughes and just focus on challenge tour and improving your game ready for Q school next year.

Jamie Hughes didn't have much choice as a Lakeside qualifier failing at QS.. His options back then were limited... much more choice and flexibility to all QS failures now..

Mandigers has a fair point though.. You shouldn't have to be a PDC player to expect venues, dates, TV stations and prize money and cut off dates to be set in stone.. to be fair though Des does seem to be trying to put all this in place.. Its just happening very slowly

Indeed. It wasn't from choice. At least I doubt it.

Thankfully for him he no longer has to put up with the shambolic organising of events on that side anymore.

Any reason given?

At least it is on next year (or planned to be on anyway ).

Not the start of things unravelling?

There are plenty of venues if you dont leave it to the last minute. Poor excuse. New era.

Just read on fanatics. So reason to cancel is because they didn't want an unsuitable venue (present one being demolished?). Sure there are tons of suitable venues out there.

Is des losing heart?

Announcement is on the BDO website.

However to find it you have to scroll past the massive advert for the North Cyprus Open.

Seems it's all about priorities.

Is there really an advert for the North Cyprus Open at the top of every sodding page?!?!
