Hearn has no interest in anything to do with the BDO.

Maybe not, but you wouldn't completely put it past him giving Sue a few quid and a bit of encouragement just for the entertainment value of the unmitigated disaster that would surely follow.

Maybe they're moving to the states and want to run the American side of things.

Surely the point is that it speaks volumes about how Des has done so far if Sue is confident enough in her own current standing within the game to be considering a comeback.
It would speak more about her delusion.
Even if Jacklin can't get the BDO out the hole it's in, that certainly doesn't mean you should give the spade back to the idiots who dug it.

All we have is (1) was there (2) had a meeting. Nothing about what they discussed.

Was an actual meeting ever confirmed or just guess work?

Not privvy to any inside info but can't see Hearn being interested in taking over anything, the PDC have the golden ticket, they have a strong youth tour, they have a strong second tier tour. Why would they need the aggravation of any kind of BDO take over?

I can see them being interested in Lakeside and the access the BDO has to the US and world organisations, whatever you think of the BDO the international loyalty is still there.

Mostly guesswork. There were some interesting rumours on Fanatics about Sue either being involved in a new organisation or trying to take back control from Des.
At around the same time Sue and Wayne were spotted in Vegas, so we've all been having a bit of fun with it.

Interview with Barry Hearn from August 2018, shortly after the BDO lifted the PDC player ban.

BDO bit starts 4:29.
Hearn said that if BDO accepts that it runs amateur darts they'd help financially and in other ways.

He has noted in other interviews that a key sticking point is the BDO calling Lakeside the World Professional Championships.

Zuiderduin was on the bucket list.

Sad times.
Any more progress on charity event for Dudders?
Hope to be able to confirm something next week or so.... But this is not an announcement of an announcement.

So why did Sue and Wayne spend their Las Vegas Holiday watching Americans and Canadians play darts? 3 days spent in the venue . Are they planning a hostile takeover of the ado, ndfc or the PDC?
Haha
Weird

Except for BT sport and Eurosport contracts.,- worldwide known event in lakeside which could be a big money maker with a proper title sponsor in place
