Default BDO World Darts Championships 2013

Semi finals tomorrow, final on Sunday.

Do you guys like Darts? Who is your favorite?

I personally always liked Tony O'Shea! Brilliant player with a great personality too. Hope this could be his year, although a potential final against Scott Waites would be very tough.

Default Re: BDO World Darts Championships SF and Final! O'Shea, Harms, Waites and George!

I like darts but i don't follow BDO too much. PDC is where the real deal happens my favs are Barneveld, Winstanley and Whitlock and i also like Van Gerwen for the way he exploded in this season.

As for the BDO world championship i hope for a Waites vs O'Shea final because both of them deserve to finally win "the big one". I predict Scott to win it but i hope Tony will because he's already 52 and i don't think he'll have any more opportunities.

I support Harms. Too bad he couldn't reach the big final. O'Shea should win tomorrow.

The Premier League (PDC) starts in a month. That's what you should be watching.

However Scott Waites will win the final tomorrow, but it would be nice if Silverback won it.

I like Wesley Harms and am sorry he lost. Hopefully he transfers to the PDC ASAP.

Yes the PDC is the real deal in darts.

The best players of the BDO (Waites, Adams, O'Shea and Harms) would just be top 30 players at the PDC and nothing more at the moment. Maybe Waites and Harms will make the step in the future.

I expect Waites to win tomorrow.

Most of these upcoming players will eventually switch to PDC almost surely.Only older players like Adams or O'Shea stay in BDO these days.Although even Hankey switched last year. The question is why Waites didn't switch. He can be a top player in PDC as well.


This is the real deal.

BDO - British Darts Organisation
PDC - Professional Darts Corporation

BDO was the original governing body, the PDC was formed in '93 because the players wanted to make more money and thought the BDO were useless (Darts was huge on telly in the 80s, but all the sponsors and TV coverage disappeared by the end of the decade).

The top 16 players quit the BDO, signed a deal with Sky Tv and had their own World Championship in '94, it started off smaller but now is huge - only Football gets better ratings on Sky Sports and their final gets 8x the attendance (read more here http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Split_in_darts )

The ironic thing is that the guy who used to run the BDO and who arguably is the reason for the split lives only a mile from where the PDC hold their World Championship.........

How has this not been mentioned yet, the darts players that stay in the BDO are VULTURES.

Disgusting level. I watched the PDC WC, fantastic darts, that van Gerwen almost back-to-back 9-darter

Then I watched a BDO match only to see aguy miss the bord completely with a dart

^ Well, the PDC WC has just finished a week and a half ago, so you´re gonna have to wait for a while yet. But yeah, PDC is so superior to BDO it´s not even funny anymore.
