The last weekday of Lakeside will decide the final four in the men's contest and the last two in the ladies' tournament. In the men's championship, it's a clean split of former semi-finalists and those new(...ish) to this stage whereas the women's will see a guaranteed new finalist with just one former champion left.The afternoon begins with the only two non-Brits left in the men's draw with Germany's Michael Unterbuchner against Netherlands' Willem Mandigers. Both men averaged above 90 in their victories on Wednesday afternoon, with T-Rex whitewashing Wayne Warren and Mandigers beating Wesley Harms in 6 sets. The first women's semi-final features the two big upsetters aiming to reach a first ever final as Japan's Mikuru Suzuki plays Plymouth tranny Maria O'Brien; Miracle followed up that stunner over Lisa Ashton with a farcical win over Sharon Prins, and O'B produced a near 90 average to completely outplay Fallon Sherrock. Ending the session are PDC reject Conan Whitehead and 2-time champ Scott Waites; the Barbarian averaged 96 in an absolute embarrassment of #1 seed Mark McGeeney while Scotty 2 Hotty outplayed Richard Veenstra in 5 sets.The evening sees what could be an absolute stormer of a women's game between #1 seed Lorraine Winstanley and 3-time champ Anastasia Dobromyslova; Winstanley mercifully dumped out Trina Gulliver in straight sets while the Russian did the same to Aileen de Graaf. The two tight winners last night then take to the stage in 2-time back-to-back champ Glen Durrant and Ulster's Kyle McKinstry; Duzza nearly threw away a 3-0 lead against Scott Baker and the Village Man had to come from 3-2 down to beat David Cameron. Closing the day's action are 2015 champ Scott Mitchell and Wales's Jim Williams; neither player was tested in their last 16 games as both won 4-0 against Krzysztof Kciuk and Dean Reynolds respectively.Coverage starts at 1:00pm on Quest and Eurosport UK with the evening session on Eurosport only.

Time for a late lunch before the next game.
got Waites -1.5 here
Does anyone know why OB1 didn't go for the 161? Heard that was 5.000 Pounds. Considering the winner gets only 10.000 and that she wouldn't be near winning even when she went through today, it would have been a wise decision to go for it.
>>90172782>webmWhite people s m h
Why don't they combine the men's and women's tournament like the PDC? Women are at no inherent disadvantage in darts
>>90172843they are shorter
>>90172843For the same reason the PDC don't really combine them. No women would qualify.
>>90172843>Women are at no inherent disadvantage in dartsWhat makes you say that? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16350603
>>90172782>Restaurant devoted to avocados>Only uses 200 a dayHas it gone bust yet?
>>90172882>What makes you say that?Because they're not *that* far behind the men even now when their talent pool must be significantly smaller. If an equal number of women played darts seriously it's not hard to imagine there would be some who could reach competitive averages
>>90172967They really are well below the men almost all of the time.
>>90172967>If an equal number of women played darts seriouslyBut they don't. And that nasty male dominatd pub culture is keeping the ladies from doing it.

>>90175931completely bottled it from winning against the throw
what do these "best friends" do when their hubbies are playing tournaments or on exhibitions?
>>90175078Upset coming next.McKinstry won the bull.
When's the women's final? Surely the BDO aren't that shit that they've got it tomorrow afternoon?
Whenever I see McKinstry I instinctively adjust my posture and straighten my back
>>90176261Two semis and a final spread across two sessions? Fucks sake, Saturday evening is a prime time for 'other' sports as the football has finished. A ladies final in between to men's semis would be perfect.

THAT HUGE 124 ON THE BULL
Durt got this in the bag
THAT 10 DARTER
Guess 5-0 wasn't that far off after all.
>>90177187That blunder on 118 could lose Kyle the game.Don't understand why he's gone 18s first.
>>90177195Because he hates d19
>>90177222If he had hit the T20 with his first dart, he could have left the D20 which he loves.
>>90177236He would have missed fat 18
>>90177222if he doesn't like that then go T16-bull
>>90177242Thanks for the analysis, Rod
>>90177275good milkers, would motorboat
I hope there's a stiff breeze outside, lads. McKinstry needs that spun sugar blown off his fucking head.
I bet Kyle browses /v/

>>90177275isn't this that association football player?
Duzza's finishing has been fucking dogshit at times in this one.
>>90177448Prince of Style or the blue-eyed bombshell?Anyways, the answer is no.
>>90177518was talking about the shell
Scotty dog playing just before kotw is announced. Could we see a late surge to claim it?
>>90177598Correct me if i'm wrong my German friends but isn't it DAS MENSUR because Mensur is a word of an foreign origin?
>>90177635"das Mensur-Finish" would probably be how one would say it in Germany
>>90177682Close enough, it has been a while since I have studied German.
This interviewer sure does love the word "commiserations".
>deflated andy fordham
>>90177743I think it's a good word. Far better than "sorry for your loss"
Andy looking to be in surprisingly slim shape. Good for him.
>On 10 January 2009, it was announced that Fordham would move to the PDC. Fordham made his PDC debut in March 2009 at a Players Championship in Coventry, losing his preliminary round match 6–4 against Gary Scratchley. After ending his first six tournaments with no money and without a single win, Fordham won his first match at the East Midlands Players Championship, beating Jon Archer 6–4 and earned £200 for his efforts. He eventually lost to James Wade in the last 64 stage. He also won £200 in Austria and a combined total of £400 over two tournaments in Nuland. As of October 2011, Fordham was ranked 303 in the PDC Order of Merit, having not won any prize money since October 2009. In 2013, it seemed that he had stopped drinking and made a return to competitive darts.jesus christ
>>90177785He truly puts the ham in fordham

them's good darts
On track to be the highest quality match of the tournament so far
>>90178241well it wasfallen to pieces now
>>90178345I should wait until at least three sets are down before making such proclamations. They're still playing well, mind
>>90178345both still above 90, so a very decent match
>>90178368oh yeah, definitely
Remember when they had black on red for the scores during the first day.Man, those were the times.
>Calzaghe the GOAT British sportsmanNot even the GOAT Welsh boxer
>>90178464Chris Mason is a simpleton.Although it would have to be someone from a sport played globally, so would have to be a boxer, footballer, tennis player, formula 1 driver or golfer IMO
Even though these two are evenly matched, I think Williams will give Duzza more of a run for his money.The other semi I don't see Unterbuchner doing a lot unless Waites has a shit day.
>>90178498Unterbuchner will win.He's the new James Wade. Always finds a way to scrape through
>comms mentioning the OTHER other Merv King
Threatening this 5 grand it has to go soon surely
>that Mitchell "dancing"
Very impressed by Williams here.Solidly averaging 97-98 now.
>>90178774Aye its a good solid game is this, hope Williams doesnt run away with it because he's looking slightly more likely too.
>>90178814Wouldn't begrudge him switching at all.He's youngish (34) and his throw doesn't have THAT much wrong with it. Just how it rests in his hands really.
>a fucking number
Big leg incoming
Williams now slipping.
>>90177965Good, good. I can ease up now.
Scotty dog playing better than rvb has in the last 4 years
doggo really making up for his lack in 180's with consistency
who's the best player never to win the BDO championship?
>>90178999That's his trademark.Low-90's average and good finishing around 61-121 scores.
>>90179083MVG, Gary Anderson and Adrian Lewis.In that descending order.
Scotty dog and wolfie would tear up the premier league
>>90179100I discount all of these as they werent anywhere near the standard they reached in the PDC. It should only include players who were there or therabouts their best.
>>90179143Whitlock then?The only man to lose World Finals in both organisations and never win one.
>>90179143Anderson was the favourite for years in a row, and kept getting bummed.
>>90179143Gary Anderson was a World Darts Trophy, International Darts League and Zuiderduin Masters champion (all of those were huge tournaments back then) and kept on bottling it at the Lakeside year after year.He went out of the tournament as the #2 seed in both 2007 and 2008 before fucking off to the PDC.
>nearly midnight>this shit is still going on
A reminder of Gando at the BDO Worlds.
>>90179204He was also the #1 seed in 2009 and lost to Tony O'Shea in the third round.He also was a Grand Slam of Darts semifinalist twice as a BDO player so he wasn't a bum back then.
There is some dickhead whistling on Mitchells throw
Kek justin credible in the crowd whistling on scottys throw
>>90179280Probably wants to go to bed.
>>90179294Most likely lol. He was at it in the previous couple legs too.
>SHITTY DOG MITCHELLAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Shame they couldn't quite keep the pace from the first half of the match
Excited for the Duzza-Waites final. Should be kino.
Williams v The Evil King will hopefully be good.

See you at 2:30pm later today for the penultimate session of Lakeside 2019.
>>90179220>>90179204>>901791602007-2009 gando was not the same player as he was in the mid 00's despite being seeded #1 in the BDO at that time. I still think the only reason Wolfie won 3 titles is because he was released from Barneys pocket, and he probably wasnt the only one. I think there are probably players who threw far more better darts and had a lot more better games over a few years that didnt win it, and thats sort of my point. Gando maybe deserves to be counted but MVG and Lewis is sort of having a laugh.
>>90179555>it's the PDC bootlicker
>>90179595he's right thoughMVG was nowhere near what he is now and lewis had barely any time in the BDO
>>90179595Not at all lol. Just never been a huge Wolfie fan and felt he wouldnt have won more than 1 world title and possible 0 had Barney not left. My memory of those years (and its going back to close to the mid 90's) is somewhat a bit blurry tbf.
>>90179614He was only responding to people arguing the Gando point, and backtracking. MVG and Lewis are obviously not in the same bracket with the BDO, so not worth mentioning again.
>>90179757That said, today's Lewis would have a rough time winning the BDO title.
