The second Saturday at Lakeside means it's the men's semi-finals and the ladies' final. The semis feature a pair of two-time champions and two youngsters looking for their first BDO final.Starting off today's action are two women in the final for the first time, guaranteeing a new winner for the first time since 2014, with #1 seed Lorraine Winstanley against Japanese star Mikuru Suzuki. Winstanley has been taken to a deciding set in 2 of her 3 matches so far whereas Miracle hasn't yet dropped a set.The first men's semi-final pits Germany's Michael Unterbuchner against two-time champ Scott Waites. T-Rex came from 4-3 down to defeat Willem Mandigers yesterday afternoon while Scotty 2 Hotty beat Conan Whitehead in 8 sets; based on their performances this week you'd have to favour the Yorkshireman but Michi's resilience could get him through.The second men's semi is a repeat of that remarkable quarter-final from last year between reigning back-to-back winner Glen Durrant and Wales's Jim Williams. This was famously "QSchoolgate" in 2018, where the Quiff died from 4-1 up and lost 12 of 13 legs to ensure Duzza remained #BDO4LIFE. The Boro boy outplayed Kyle McKinstry in 7 sets this time and the Welshman mercifully removed waddling farmer Scott Mitchell from contention in a 5-3 win.Coverage starts at 2:30pm on Quest and Eurosport UK with the evening session on Eurosport only from 6:45pm.All matches are best of 11 sets except women's matches (best of 5 sets... at last!).

Haha time for proper darts
An early list for Q-School has appeared via DartConnect: https://tv.dartconnect.com/eventplayers/pdcukqs19More than a quarter of those who attended Lakeside this year have signed up, including Durrant, Waites and Williams.
>>90188110>1 match evening sessionWhat a waste
I'm getting warmed up by watching some of Ando's vintage Lakeside first round bottlejobs.https://youtu.be/VzcroBf7ozc
>>90188602>Caven>Painter>Big Prakash Jiwa for the 10,000th time
>>90188628>1st leg>5 missed shots at doubleLooks like some classic Gando
>>90188144>Coni Singh Nagihttp://www.dartsdatabase.co.uk/PlayerDetails.aspx?PlayerKey=18017&organPd=All&tourns=All&plStat=1&pg=1#PlayerResultsWhy fucking bother?
Who are the most clinical finishers in darts?
>Milfstanley>Scotty 2 Hotty>Duzza
>>90188144>NIR get the British flag
>>90188796Nowadays probably Mensur but Whitlock used to be absolutely deadly in 121+ checkouts.
Watch Suzuki win and get booed to fuck by the xenophobic crowd.
why was mikuru playing a man in the semis
If this Japanese car plays on the level she has been this whole tournament, Winstanley will get fucked
>>90189427could be 3-0
>YouTube chat filled with japs
The state of that walk-on mix.
Based Nippon. With that walk-on she would go over well with the PDC crowd
dmitri post op looking rough
>putting the munter who averaged less than 60 against Ana on commentarylol
HOLY FUCKING BASED
THAT 148BLAZERS BE SEETHING
jesus dat 148
MVG SHOOKBARRY ON SUICIDEWATCH
>mummy getting fucked raw by chubby ayumime don't like this
Winstanley getting fucking annihilated.12 points down on the average after set 1.
>that characteristic squintWoah, calm down nicho
this is revenge on the brits for asada
How can one girl be so based!
Suzuki could be beating the men at this rate.
Has Mrs Deano even had a go at a double yet?
lel the waman can't even hit a 9-darter what amateurs
Where the fuck has she come from. Does she not normally play over here?
>>90189797No.Been very hotly tipped by those in the know but the bookies fucked up by putting her at 150/1: https://twitter.com/DanDartsDawson/status/1083764529413193730
*exposes your Western ladies*
>>90189828she was 16/1 on paddypower
P I T YL E G
>>90189828Those odds were offered by just one bookie and only for couple hours. And even then you could only wager up to few pounds.
>>90189873At the start of the tournament I mean.
>>90189888so do i
I PREDICT A RIOT!
She could unironically compete with the blokes on this form
Fucking hell, this final is going to last about 20 minutes.
>>90189928But she did also average 62 in the 2nd round.
>>90189934A lot longer than I would last in Suzuki
Has a woman ever averaged more than 90 in this tournament?
Good advert for women's darts this. Great standard, qt asian doing well and 0 munters to be seen.
>>90189992Trina Gulliver, multiple times
>>90190013What about in a final?
>Anastasia lost for this
>>90190038Never.Highest was Lisa last year (89.80)
>>90190038Best was Ashton last year - 89.8
i love anime lads
>>90189712>jap and german win lakeside
Only two more legs!
>>90190042None of the women in the draw would complete with this standard.Ana and Lisa at a push.
>>90190075Barry would love that in his rip off circus, big money markets.
Her average is dipping a bit. Really hope she can keep it just above 90
With Winstanley's horrible throwing technique, it's just luck if she hits a T20 or not.
>>90190092Sherrock threw an 89 avg in R1
>>90190122So that's 3.Seriously though, Suzuki was always going to be the winner after knocking out Lisa.
BASED NICHO WITH THE NEW CHADPAN REFERENCE
>that Nicholson wrestling analogyFFS
CLINICAL D4 AFTER THAT OPPONENT 180DEAN ON SUICIDEWATCH
>>90190156If she'd met literally anyone else in R2 she'd have been out
>>90190182>If she'd met literally anyone else in R2 she'd have been out>implying that performance would have happened against anyone else
>Suzuki's husband has flown in for the finalBet the flight cost more than what she's going to win
SHE DIPPED UNDER 90 ON THE LAST THROW FFS
>Darts: 15, 15, 18, 14, 16, 18, 15, 17, 15, 13, 22
wade shook, brexit cancelled
>>90190223NO WAIT SHE JUST SCRAPED IT
whitu piggu btfo
Did Mom really lose with 100% on doubles?
>can't even afford one of those big oversized chequesAbsolute state
What the fuck is Winstanley doing?
Wade on suicide watch
>Little Richard is actually shorter than a Japanese woman
>>90190302Oh ok, there it is, Mrs Deano had to go without
>>90190302Can only afford one, apparently
>>90189486>>YouTube chat filled with japsIs there a Youtube link for this?
>>90190306what are post-menopausal heat wave bumps, you sexist pig?
>>90190347Blocked in the UK apparentlyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5cjj6-_ehI
>>90190347Not for britbongs.
When will Suzuki join PDC?
>>90190363>>90190364FUCK YOU WOLFIE ADAMSThanks anyway, lads.
Is this one of the rare occasions where she has a legit complaint about receiving such a small prize compared to the men? She gets 10x less but she's not 10x worse, unlike e.g. tennis where the women are actually overpaid compared to their relative quality
>>90190400Potentially, but the BDO barely have a pot to piss in. They chuck what they can at the mens draw to try and keep some people out of the PDC.The PDC don't have a comparable women's tournament.
>>90190400The women play fewer matches and fewer legs than men so the smaller prize fund is therefore justifiable.Expanding the tournament would mean a significantly lower standard of play and nobody wants to see that.
HA HA TIME FOR UNDERBOOKS
>Michael you require 9>18Fucking jobbing twat.
Did everyone forget about Waites/Unterbuchner?
>>90191036These scrubs can't even get above 90 unlike based Suzuki
>>90191036This should be pretty straightforward.Waites' scoring is too good for Unterbuchner whose finishing needs to be at the same level as it was during the Grand Slam which it obviously is not.
>those attempts at D10
Just in case you forgot what you were watching after that amazing performance here's some peak lakeside
Whoever wins the other semi will trash these clowns
>inb4 whitewash session
>>90191169So Duzza then.
>Rawling calling the 2nd set the opening set
No wonder Unterbuchner is holding off Q-School until 2020.Playing absolute shite here.
Scott waits to finish the job
This is one of the worst games of the tournament
>>90191342Everyone at lakeside this year is basically a pdc jobber and no better.
What happened to THUMP, THUMP, THUMP?The best thing about the BDO. Turn the mics up pls
>>90190211They said yesterday she doesn't need the money. No further explanation. Maybe she is filthy rich
>>90191672That went away with the BBC as did all the KINO camera angles they had.https://youtu.be/xI1axeylQCs
>>90191771She makes a shit ton of money in Asia playing soft tip.The money in soft tip game is one of the reasons why not that many Asian players are doing the Pro Tour.
>>90191771Apparently the Dartslive tour in Japan pays big money.
>Bought myself a cheap second monitor so now I can post and watch
>>90191832>mfw I can cast BDO and PDC events from my computer to my TV in Full HD
>>90191832I wouldn't bother watching this one
>>90191771I wish I had a rich Asian GF.
Both players are embarrassed by this shitshow of a game.
>Waites going for double top to leave 170cheeky
>>90192004Nearly 85 for Waites, less for the kraut
THE COMEBACK IS ON
P I T YS E T
>Wimmin shud be d sameOh fuck off with this shit
That was fucking atrocious.
Williams is gonna smash him in the final
Understacker on suicide watch
based waites I hope he wins
>>90192766he will get duzza'd
Shame we won't ever see prime Waites again
This howling for Adams is fucking retarded.
Based wolfie. Imagine the state of the cunts that actually dislike him.
Durrant looks quite villainous
>Duzzastate of that 68 attempt
>rawling going off about our first 100 average tonight>durrant then misses back to back big numbers
>>90194607>kim after that 160>that laugh
Duzza is fucking seething
Duzza is finished
the Dark Lord is shook
DUZZA SHOOKBAZZA SHOOKMVG SHOOK
What's going on lads? I'm stuck watching the Chelsea game
>>90194868Williams absolutely brutalising Duzza: http://dartsforwindows.com/live/livescore.html?matchid=33264621CLI
Someone should tell Tony O'Shea that Berwick isn't fucking in Scotland
>>90194868Is it good? 'cuz Duzza isn't
Game changing 110.
Duzza is a mental midget
This is some game.
>wait for 2 hours with your 2nd dart while opponent is on a 9-darter What an ass
A Lakeside treat
>>90195153Daily reminder there is literally nothing wrong with leaving a bogey number
After 3 sets:Williams: 104.97Durrant: 101.94
>>90195228>this kills the Barry
>>90195228MVG vs Ando finished at 104.76 to 97.98
>>90195228I bet neither of them end up above 95
>>90195256Well I guess that means MVG AND ANDO SHOOK
>>90195271Duzza might.Williams looked close last night and then deteriorated.
Erratic darts from Williams since the break
>>90195295Break definitely threw his rhythm.Jim now being out-averaged.
Who's this Ando I keep on seeing mentioned here all the time?Is he the same fella who had trouble getting out of the first round at the Lakeside?
What if there were two dartboards on stage and the players took their turns simultaneously
Either of these will smash Scotty 2 Jobby
Duzza been absolute shit the last two legs
What do you think about Williams putting his toe to the oche instead of the side of his foot? That's how I throw as well, it feels more comfortable
OGREGREVery shitty for the match that Duzza gets set 4. Barry would never let that happen.
>>90195488Nothing wrong with that, Gary "the Scottish Fraud" Anderson does it as well.
>>90195488That's how a lot of people throw
>>90195488Gary Anderson, whitlock, suljovicIt's not uncommon desu mate
>65 left>trying 25why
>>90195580Whitlock is not fully toe on like Ando is. It's more of an 45° angle for Simon.
>Duzzawhat the fuck was that
>Tony O'Shea pronounces Shanghai as Shangai
>Duzza>againwhat the fuck was that shit
Kek>refreshes the howlers thread
YOU FAT BASTARD
>>90196268Love a bit of Hankey Pankey
>>90196268Did he throw his other 2 darts into Whitlock there wtf
>that 9 dart attempt
>Lakey 9 dart attempts
FUCK OFF DURRANT THIS GAME MUST GO ON GIVE SET TO WILLIAMS
THAT 115INCREDIBLE DARTS FROM DURRANT
FUCK YOU DURRANT
Pack it up boys
Really unlucky for williams clipping the wire on 3 set darts
>>90196268>>90196301Ted in the grand slam was god tier entertainment.Both when he won and went apeshit afterwards and also when he got smashed and the crowd bullied him worse than they bullied Price at worlds
>>90196548he was truly box office
>>90196548Darts needs more people like Ted and Manley.
>>90196268>>90196301>>90196548>>90196580Wish I was around for HankeyHe seems absolutely based. I would have been a supporter.
>>90196641He is totally based.Also had one of the greatest walk-ons ever!
>DUZZAStupid cunt rushed the lot.
>>90196641>>90196695Forgot the link.https://youtu.be/Y7oWG1vInrk
>>90196695Also a based shirt, based chest hair and based balding haircut
>>90196640Please don't be offensive or political incorrect. Just choose some top 10 normie music as walk on song and make a heart sign with your hands. Thank you.
>>90196715>not posting one of his lakeside walk ons with the dracula cape and rubber bats
THAT 123 TO WIN IT
>>90196641Hankey was amazing. Someone said they werent around for him and a few other older players in their pomp, and out of those mentioned (think it was Hankey, Manly, Fordham and Adams) Hankey was probably my favourite. Not only on his day was he probably better at the arrers than those mentioned (he could average about a 100 and take out massive checkouts in games of this length) he would do it playing the pantomime villain and chatting with the crowd. Also if you hated all that and some did, you probably had the pleasure of watching him do his pantomime villain act when he got past it and there were a few games here where it was just embarrassing - but still sort of funny.
96avg. for Duzza.Courtesy of our lord and saviour Cliff Murray.
>>90196806I couldnt be fucked to multiply by 3 the 1 dart average cunts
>>90196791Hankey's last appearance at Lakeside was a complete disaster.Hilarious but tragic.Averaged 71 against Martin Phillips.
>>90196814>it all makes sense nowhttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-38157811
>>90196815Yeah it was car crash stuff I remember it. But thankfully I remember him winning it and when he really could play. Could score ridiculously heavily and always seemed to be threatening big checkouts
>>90196893Don't forget the daddy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nUpqZwc-ak
>>90196907Vs the King of Jobbers at that.
See you all tomorrow for Bradford's Scott Waites v Middlesbrough's Glen Durrant.Who becomes a three-time World Champion?
>>90197157>Uncle Bazza's face when they both end up getting tour courds
>>90197241They should automatically give the BDO WC winner a tourcard. Just the winner though. Runner-up can try again next year.
>>90197157Really is the big ticket match-up in the BDO, even if Waites hasn't actually been top 2 on performance
>missed the afternoon session>stayed away from this thread so I could watch the ladies' final NIPPON STRONG
