Japanese winner of the Women's title, 4 dart average of 90 - probably would beat a high percentage of the men.

She'd definitely beat them if they let her throw 4  :D

Wonder why Scott Waites never bothered with the PDC, has always been good enough to make a decent  living there.

Think he is a joiner and said before he is happy playing part time and working at that.  Lifting 100k every other year a right top up for your salary.  I often wonder would the likes of Dolan or some of the lesser PDC players not maybe be better at the BDO - bound to have a decent shot of making the final/winning a world title
Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience

Look at the money Dolan made this year and the past few years will let you why they didnt move to BDO.

Dolans made £118k in the last 2 years, bumped up substantially by his earnings at Worlds.. It's really not that lucrative bar the real elite.
It's entirely possible Waites is happy enough with his lot in life and a world title every few years is a nice bonus and I'm sure it helps him with sponsorships and exhibition fees??

Good final so far, Durrant leads 4-3.

So 3-in-a-row Lakeside winner Glen Durrant has qualified for the PDC tour by winning a "tour card".
2 cards were available each day over 4 days of qualifying, and while he didn't manage to bag one of those, he did qualify as one of the 11 best losers.

Other tour card winners from the BDO included; Mark McGeeney, Conan Whitehead, Scott Baker and Jamie Hughes.

Interesting to see the PDC Money list here, which is from ranking events over the last 2 years. Not bad at all!

Darts is quite a poor sport really. PDC probably take a nice cut as well.

Didnít know that Terry Jenkins was still at it. Well down the rankings now.

Would hotels and flights be covered by sponsors?
