    was,nt a great night of darts,wattimena is piss poor.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,279 ✭✭✭ Dillonb3


    Durrant Rydz match is desperate to watch



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,231 ✭✭✭ bassy


    Shocking stuff



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,279 ✭✭✭ Dillonb3


    Good match there with Dobey and Cullen. I was Surprised how easily Humphries bet Wade, thought it would've been closer

    Think MvG’s decline is terminal


    I thought it might have been the lack of crowds that was affecting his form but he’s a shadow of his former self and I can’t see him winning much anymore

    jeez the state of yer man Rydz with the comb over

    Reminds me of Kenny Cunningham before he got sense and shaved his head



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,993 ✭✭✭ leffesem


    Ratajski really 'beating up' the boy Callan Rydz here... 7-3 at second break... Very poor averaging from Rydz.. Stick a fork in him 😀

    Some quality darts here in the Dimitri v Price match... The Belgian up 3-2 at break, and a break up. Very poor finishing from Dimitri - I think he missed 6 at double 12 in the 2nd last leg. Nice bit of psychology from Price; when he was throwing at 124 (with Dimitri waiting on 161).. He hit treble 20, and instead of going for 14s, he nails treble 8 😁 All for nought, as he misses tops, and the Belgian eventually (not the next throw) took the leg 😁

    Naughty Price - done a Dimitri pirouette/about turn after winning leg 15 to go within 1. He must have been practising. Give him 9/10 for technical merit 😂

    atmosphere is excellent great to see fans back at the darts



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,993 ✭✭✭ leffesem


    Do I not like to see Price getting his ass handed to him.. Great entertainment this 😊 Three ahead (11-8) and Dimitri's on throw.... AWWWWWWWWWhhhhh - Belgian nails a bull finish... 12-8!!!

    Undoubtedly Price is a great player but there’s something unlikeable about him, the aggression the mocking of his opponents, hope DvdB hands him his ass

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,898 ✭✭✭ Deeper Blue


    Dimitri did just that. Great to see. As cringy as the dancing is Price mocking it was poor form. Delighted for him.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,993 ✭✭✭ leffesem


    I think Dimitri's got some great moves!! Same ones all the time - but he does have some rhythm 😊

    Seen the clips of Price on twitter. Delighted he got bet.


    I hope Ratajski goes on to win this, hasn't had a good year since the Worlds and the crowd gave him serious amount of stick for no reason against Humphries

    Price is great value for the viewer, so often I'm on the edge of my seat watching his matches.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,993 ✭✭✭ leffesem


    Wrighty v Smith up next. The one I'm looking forward to is MvG v The Asp (due off approx 8.45). Has the potential to be a cracker that one!!!

    In this upcoming match I can see Smith getting tired, just like when he struggled to get over the line against Jose. I see Wrighty winning easy enough - 16-7/8/9 , or somewhere in that region. Think the MvG-Asp match could be the closest of tonight's two encounters. I think MvG wins, but can't see him winning by more than two.

    Very few 'Splinters' here 😁

    Hoping for a few hours of pandemonium & fantastic dartistry..

    Enjoy

    Smith was mouthing off as if he'd won the tournament the other night when he beat Jose. I didn't see the game tonight but it's no surprise that he was hammered. The lad needs to change his attitude and fast.

    VDB does have a head for hitting



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,993 ✭✭✭ leffesem


    Mon Wrighty.. !!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,279 ✭✭✭ Dillonb3


    Wright looking comfortable so far going into the first break



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,993 ✭✭✭ leffesem


    Wrighty's hittin some serious scores here... So close to that D12 😙

    When he’s on it Wright is just fantastic to watch. Incredible stuff!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,279 ✭✭✭ Dillonb3


    He's class how he can switch parts of his darts during a match and quickly adapt his throw



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,248 ✭✭✭ shockframe


    That last session was phenomenal from Wright. Fair play.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,231 ✭✭✭ bassy


    gonna be a very good final :) i hope snakebite wins :) both lovely lads,but snakebite is great guy and no acting the clown he just gets on with it.

    i fancy snakebite to win a close one.
