    What did Taylor say after his Semi-Final?


    He said if you're ever looking to go on a night out, go to Cardiff, great city. Also said Corey Cadbury should be in premier league and he's the one to stop Van Gerwen

    great credit to gary anderson for putting up with taylor with a smile then being a very good loser to mensur

    I thought the grand prix started this weekend, but no, we have another Euro tour. The international darts open in Germany with what seems like 16 random players?

    Peter Wright
    Mensur
    Gurney
    Norris
    Benito
    White
    Cullen
    Chizzy
    Rob cross
    King
    Hybrechts
    Klassen
    Price
    Wade

    You'd think it's either Wright Gurney or Mensur but anyone could win this

    Paul Nicholson and Rob Walker deserve some credit for today's punditry at the HappyBet International Darts Open, some absolute gold out of the pair.

    dramatic scenes when one fella thought he's dislocated his elbow then he hadn't . i turned over


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭krustydoyle


    Best thing about the BDO is Glen Durrant.. He hits 100 avg on a regular basis and I expect him to win his 2nd World Title in January

    Yeah he's done the year of exhibitions and appearances etc with the cup which has really affected his playing schedule but he's going back to Lakeside Seeded 1.

    Can't ask for much more.. Fair play to him, he's got the battle for a top 16 spot in the PDC imo

    Says a lot about the standard in bdo when a very average PDC Euro tour player, Ratajski is cruising through this tournament.

    It's him v Mark mcgeany in the final.


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


    Ratajski wins it, 6-1 in sets with a 98 average.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,882 ✭✭✭sc86


    pdc nobody wins oldest bdo major
    that must really make some people blood boil
    durrant was looking for him to be ****ed out


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


    I thought that myself, but he has competed in 10 pdc events, and over 300 bdo events, he's actually a BDO player using a loophole to play in Euro tour events.

    And GLen wasn't looking for him to be thrown out, Matt porter confirmed it on Twitter earlier

    Rob Cross won today's pro tour in Dublin, beat snakebite in final. He also beat Mensor 6-1 with a 108 average in semi. What a Player, only his debut year too. Only a matter of time yoll he's winning majors, seems confident of it too.

    Suljovic hit a 9 darter darts in quarter final too

    Not 1 Irish player at lakeside again this year, why don't we have any decent players at pro and semi pro level? Northern Ireland churning out quality players every year in both codes

    One factor might be that we've never really had the Working Mans Club concept (think Phoenix Nights) that the working class areas of the UK and NI do. A lot of their players seem to come from that type of background.
    Out social scene has tended to be the small pub, where a dartboard and a working set of darts is a rarity, and even then usually ill-positioned with play liable to be stopped when the pub fills.
    Just a theory, I don't really know.
