re: Darts - World Championship - WOW
I understand triple 20 is worth the most points.

Why is he throwing for 12?

re: Darts - World Championship - WOW
you have to close out by hitting a double. so at 24 points remaining double 12 wins it.

He has to get to 0 from 501. So they throw lots of trip 20s, then a 19 or two, then some 12s. It's the fastest way to 0.

Also, those announcers remind me of the two dudes calling that sick downhill mountain bike race a couple years ago.

I don't know shite about biking, but even I knew that was an awesome run.

re: Darts - World Championship - WOW
from wiki:

the traditional way of completing in nine throws requires a score of 60 (treble 20) with each of the first six darts, that is, with the first two shots of three. This leaves 141 to score on the final shot, known as the outshot.

This outshot is traditionally performed in one of three ways:

treble 20 (60), treble 19 (57) and double 12 (24)
treble 18 (54), treble 17 (51) and double 18 (36)
treble 20 (60), treble 15 (45) and double 18 (36)

There are two ways to perform the 141 outshot with a bullseye finish:

treble 17 (51), double 20 (40), and bullseye (50)
treble 19 (57), double 17 (34), and bullseye (50)

Great article from guy at grantland as he trys to get into darts.

quote:

Welcome to something called the Lakeside BDO World Professional Darts Championship! It happened months ago. January, I think. I've successfully managed to avoid knowing who wins because I've done near-zero research. Also because it's darts. Let's be real.

Here's all I know of the event, learned in an effort to track down a video of the final: There are two governing bodies in professional darts. Apparently there was a schism at some point in the fairly recent past. From one, staid organization, two rivals were born.

Do I know if there is a demonstrable difference between the two organizations? No. I just know that there was something billing itself as the World Championship and it was broadcast by both the BBC and ESPN in the U.K. That seemed pretty legit to me. So, with all due apologies to dart fans ("darts fans?" I really don't know), I am well aware that I may be watching an inferior product. This could be the USFL of darts.

One other thing, dart(s) fans: Know that I go into this, my first darts-watching experience, with clear eyes and a full heart. I hope that I love it. I hope I will become a fan. But I am sure I'm going to wind up writing things that are super-ignorant and will make you want to scratch my corneas with whatever it is you call those little feather things at the back of a dart. So, fair warning.

Now, having brought up the Lakeside 2012 BDO men's final on YouTube, I will press play …

LET'S WATCH SOME MOTHERfrickING DARTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
