    Not mad about the premier league but definitely hitting Dublin that night, place will be hopping!

    Think I'll give it a miss next year but they are good nights

    Brighton seems to be the one dropped for Berlin.

    When Brighton was introduced in the 2007 Darts PL it was one of the biggest venues they'd used up to then and was the location of Finals night.

    I think MVG had a wain recently, might still yet be feeling the effects of the wife moaning and be off his game.

    There's some stat I seen before about players going on crazy good form after 1st child is born. It's eery how often it happens.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,551 ✭✭✭bassy

    You'd have to subscribe to PDC.tv for a good quality stream. Only 4 quid a month worth it. No minimum subscription so you can order for 1 month. Couple of Euro tours and floor tournaments coming up this month.

    Henderson is a strange case. Always does well on these Euro events, can't hit the board in UK events..

    Anyone watching the german darts masters? Its on pdc.tv. if anyone wants a stream give me a pm.

    cant see past mvg again, hopefully gurney has a good run

    I watched some last night. My abiding memory even though I've seen him plenty of times is of Andrew Gilding nearly walking off the oche to throw a dart. They had to change the camera angle on the board because of him.

    MvG won the German masters (obviously)

    Fair play to Rob cross getting to the final. What a player he's turning out to be

    Yeah I think so. In fairness it's a major, there shouldn't be reserved places for players. Everyone should have to qualify by right.

    Id say you have your tournaments mixed up. This is just the top 8 PDC players. The Grand Slam has the BDO players in November.

    Crazy how this exhibition event has 100k prize. More than most ranking events.

    I keep repeating myself but there are far too many nothing tournaments on the PDC calandar. They need to scrap some of them and come up with some proper ranking tournaments.

    This CL tournament really is having a tournament for the sake of it.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,464 ✭✭✭Ultimate Seduction


    Ya I'd agree too. I'd prefer 5 or 6 week long majors a year than nothing darts every weekend. I do like the European tour events though.

    They Euro tour events are decent. Plenty of games in short format and a chance to see players you wouldn't see otherwise.

    The problem I see is that of 12 Euro tour events that bar Gibraltar the rest are in Germany (9) and Vienna (1) which is practically Germany anyway and Maastricht which you could say the same about as it's only across the border.

    It's not much of a tour when they're always on in the same country. I'm sure a few other countries could host a couple of these Ireland being one of them.

    Ya us possibly, the Dutch get screwed too. Not enough events for the biggest darting nation on the planet.

    PDC seem very biased for Germany, young Max Hopp getting a real push from me Hearn even.

    Germany
    Spain
    Holland
    Austria
    Ireland
    Italy
    France

    That's a proper Euro tour
