PDC World Darts Competition

Recommended Posts

After the thrill of last years darts competition, I thought I would run it again this year. The World Championships start next Wednesday and finish on Jan 3rd. Like last year, this will be a question based contest, and hopefully they are more 50/50 than last years 🙂  

Rules:

There are 12 questions this year, 6 based on players and 6 based on scores and stats. You simply have to answer yes or no to each question. In addition, I have added the staking element from a contest in the summer comp. So you have 'stakes' of all numbers from 1 - 12. Whatever is your most confident prediction, stake 12, and so on down to your least confident pick which will be allocated 1. It should look something like this:

1. yes  10 points   2. yes 9 points   3. yes 2 points  4. no 8 points  etc etc

There will a trophy AND a cash prize awarded to the winner, so get studying those darts stats!!

Questions:

1. Will a Welsh player win the tournament?

2. Will a Dutch player reach the final?

3. Will a non top 8 seed reach the semi finals?

4. Will a non top 16 seed reach the quarter finals?

5. Will a female player reach at least round 3?

6. Will 3 or more top 32 seeds be eliminated before round 3? 

7. Will there be 7 or more 170 checkouts?

8. Will there be more than 850   180 scores in the tournament?

9.  Will any player average over 106 in a single game?

10. Will there be a 9 dart finish in any game?

11. Will the tournament winner have a tournament average of over 99?

12. Will more than 25 matches go to a deciding set?

 

Best of luck to all entrants
