Grand Slam of #Darts Taylor v Baxter final

Taylor takes it 10-1. Baxter did have darts at a double to win another leg, but he just could not get it done. Taylor hit his doubles well, but his scoring was not what it is at his best.

Colin Lloyd 4-10 Co Stompe
Ted Hankey 6-10 Steve Beaton
Scott Waites 10-7 Raymond van Barneveld
Ronnie Baxter 1-10 Phil Taylor,,10180~2224763,00.html

Grand Slam of #Darts Taylor v Baxter at the 2nd break

Taylor wins 9 legs before Baxter wins one, so we go to the break and wait to see how long Baxter must endure this agony. I'm thinking that if this were boxing the ref would have stopped the match by now as Baxter hardly seems able to fight back against the onslaught that is Phil "the Power" Taylor.

Grand Slam of #Darts Taylor v Baxter

Phil leads Baxter 5-0 off of a very strong start. Baxter seems to not know what hit him, and missed chances at a double to win a leg.

Grand Slam of #Darts Barney v Waites -final

Barney never looked very confident or at ease during this match. Waites missed some important darts at doubles, but held on to take the match 10-7

is into it with the crowd. Beaton 6-5

Grand Slam of #Darts Hankey v Beaton at the 2nd break

Beaton comes back from trailing 3-0 to take a 6-4 lead. This session saw Beaton pepper the board with 180's and the crowd turn up the Boos against Hankey. But Hankey did have his say by finishing 84 on the bull and serve notice that he's not going quietly!

Grand Slam of #Darts Stompe v Lloyd final

Excellent darts by Stompe. He allows only one more leg to Lloyd before closing out the match 10-4. The best display of quality darts from Stompe that I've been able to see in a long time!

Warm Up/Practice Routine

Hi Gang

We left off on my last dart tip back in July with figuring out what level you fell into, and practicing effectively for that level.
What do you want out of darts?

Level 1 was your basic occasional player. There is really no need for practice if you just enjoy throwing some arrows every once in a while socially. Usually involving a cocktail or 2 J

#darts Chris Mason says he will retire...

Today at the Grand Slam of Darts Mason said he had lost his love of the game and the will to put in the long hours of practice required to compete at the top levels of the game. He spoke of the enjoyment he's had competing against an outstanding crop of players in both the BOD and the PDC. He lament the miss opportunities in key matches during his career. In the end he believes his final matches will be in the World Championships qualifier, or the World Championships if he qualifies for them. When Stuart Pyke asked what he would do after darts, Chris Mason joke; "I may go after your job..." Pyke retorts after pause... "I'm at a loss for words."

#darts PDC Europe bans web journalist...

From an article posted by Charis (global darts website):


I was banned….
I asked to talk to the PDC Europe board but was told all were too busy... Charis (Global Darts website): article link

Not really sure what to think about this situation... does being a web journalist get you banned even if you are a player's guest?

Interested to hear some plausible explanation for any PDC officials.
