Darts...

Squeaky bum time there. Heta 7-4 up; Anderson comfortable hold; Heta failed to hold with three match-darts to check-out on 32, so Anderson back to 6-7; Anderson missed three at tops to take it to a deciding leg and Heta stepped in for an 8-6 win at 8/1. Heta averaged 92 and 8/23 finishing; Anderson averaged 91 but only 6/30 for doubles. Jetlag could be a terrible thing when I used to live in Sydney in my youth, never mind at Gary Anderson's age.

Whitlock 1/3 v. Damon Heta.

Cross 8/13 v. Gurney.

Interesting darts, but I've a fitba match to attend... though it won't be as perplexing as Footscray 21.11 (137), Essendon 1.8 (14) with 10 minutes to play. That's a bit like Man.Utd or Citeh losing 10-1 to Burnley.

Lots of interest in these events on here!

Damon Heta went in at 150/1 in Brisbane on Saturday, beating Wade, Gary Anderson, Whitlock and Cross. He's a standout 66/1 with Skybet this week, as the action moves 1,000 miles south to Melbourne. He's generally only 33/1. There are worse 66/1 bets around in sixteen-runner events - Morton are 66/1 for the League Cup in places!

Draw not out yet. MvG is 7/4 in a couple of places, including Hill's. 5/1 Cross, 6/1 Snakebite, 7/1 the alleged spoonburner, 16/1 Wade and Gurney (both maybe worth a look), 25/1 the Wizard, 33/1 Big Kyle and Big Corey, 50/1 Barney, 66/1 Heta, 250/1 Bailey, 275/1 Puha, 300/1 Pusey, 500/1 Robbie King and Mick Lacey, with the line-up of local stiffs having changed from last week.

Massive shock that no-ones interested in glorified exhibition events taking place at about 6am UK time.

It was on at lunchtime on Saturday. Brisbane is 9 hours ahead. So is Melbourne. Ideal time to watch before going to football, though I had to head off to a game before the semis. It's live on Bet365, amongst other places. $35,000 for two days' work is a fair wedge to an Aussie, so the locals will be trying. I doubt anyone forced the leading players to go. Bully Boy, Price and Suljovic aren't down there. I doubt those that have gone over will be drinking 20 tinnies of Castlemaine XXXX or Foster's on a daily basis, pigging-out on Tim-Tams with Vegemite, surfing, watching AFL or NRL, sticking shrimps and abos on the barbie or watching box DVD sets of Neighbours, Skippy, Prisoner Cell Block H, Kath & Kim, Home & Away or the 1991 Rugby World Cup instead of hitting the practice boards. The Premier League is a glorified exhibition event. This is proper darts.

Proper darts. :lol:

 

Naff off mate. It's an invitational event.

They are not invitational, at least as far as I know. The PDC lot are invited to play, but the top 8 appear to be pressured to go down there to some extent. (Top 7 as Barney is on a farewell global tour.) Melbourne in August is not Barbados. The locals have to qualify through various tournaments. You can say anything other than an open event is "invitational."

The token invitee/retiree Barney averages 106 in wiping the floor with the token invitee/Maori. Superchin & Big Kyle about to toe the oche. Gurney may be value for the event but Anderson arguably value at 15/8 for this match.

Big Kyle misses two darts to level up at 4-4 and the staunch Ulsterman wins 6-3. The alleged spoonburner whitewashes an Ocker. Whitlock through comfortably.

I've had £20 on the fat, inbred, bad-tempered Tassie bogan at 33/1. He was only 34 on Betfair. About to get underway v. Snakebite just now. They really ought to introduce a whole new bunch of sharks into the Bass Strait to stop Tasmanians making it to the mainland. (Europe could do worse than adopt a similar policy in the Med.)

Well, that was £20 donated to Bet365. The fat, inbred, bad-tempered Tassie bogan averaged 83... which was still a point-&-a-half better than Snakebite😲... but Wright won 6-4.

The player who had bookies running scared as he recorded eye-watering averages when beating Phil Taylor Down Under and winning that UK Open qualifier seems to have vanished. In the same way the player who tore Tav a new ersehole at Hampden three years ago has vanished. Do they play darts in Iran? Is Cadby maybe related to Anthony Stokes? They share a few traits. Including problems acquiring visas and whacking people in bars.

Damon Heta averaged a tick under 100 in pumping James Wade 6-1. He was 9/4 to repeat last week's win over Helen Chamberlain's ex-toyboy. Not quite as good value as Accies at double those odds to repeat last week's win over Killie, but not bad nonetheless.  Five 180s in seven legs and 6/8 on doubles. Respectable MvG average in caning an Ocker; less reapectable Cross average in doing likewise.

Under 100% books on two of tomorrow's QF's, before the arbers move in and the prices come into line.

 Heta 31/10 v. Cross - the biggest price of anyone in the last eight, despite beating him last week. That looks worth a bet. There's some 4/11 about Cross and even a bit of 2/5. 

The alleged spoonburner (not Anthony Stokes) is 7/4 v. MvG and that could be value too. MvG a best 8/15.

Gurney 8/15 and Whitlock 13/8.

The other arb is Wright as big as 1/2 v. Barney with Sky and Betfair, while Hill's go 23/10 Barney.

Free money is just so tedious. Especially in invitational tournaments and glorified exhibitions.

Kindly f**k off to the gambling forum. I don’t come into this thread to read this shite.

The boy Heta has massive hands.

Comfortable lead in the Australian rankings, should be making an appearance at the worlds in December.
