MariFlex2013_championPressrelease:  Vlaardingen,  the 17th of March 2013

In an exciting final  number 1 in the world and runner up of the MariFlex 2012 edition, Stephen Bunting, was crowned champion  of the 7th International MariFlex Open Darts Tournament. In this final Bunting showed why he is the best player in the world and did not give his opponent Geert De Vos from Belgium much glorious moments in this game.

The Belgian played good in this tournament , and on his way to the finale he defeated players as Martin Atkins and the Ross Montgomery.  Stephen Bunting ended the dream of  Benito van de Pas to obtain the title in his home country. Stephen won the semi final against Benito 2-0 in sets.

And also the final Stephen Bunting was supreme. However he lost the first leg of the first set, Stephen leveled the set and to 1-1. The next two legs went with the darts but in the fifth and deciding  leg Stephen was the first to find a double for the set. In the  two subsequent sets Geert de Vos  lost 3-1 and 3-0 and became Stephen  the new 2013 International  MariFlex Dart Open Champion.

Stephen Bunting also won a ticket for the Zuiderduin Masters, but  he already  assured of participation because as the reigning Zuiderduin Masters champion he comes the Egmond to defend his  title.
The English Deta Hedman, winner of last years ladies tournament again reached the final of the tournament. This time her opponent was compatriot Rachel Brooks and Rachel made it very hard for Deta to become champion for the second timein a row. Not in the first set which Deta won in 3 clear legs but in the second Rachel stroke back by winning this set in 3-0.

In the third and deciding set  Deta even was 0-1 but recovered it immediately by leveling the set and then winning the next two to win her second MariFlex Open title in a row.

Furthermore, today two youth tournaments have been played, a tournament for boys and one for girls.  No Dutch girls  in that final.  this weekend the English Casey Galagher and Swedish Sarah Rosen turned out to be strongest girls of this tournament.  The title was for Casey  Galagher from England who won in six leg of the  Sarah Rosen. To 4 legs went right on, 2-2, then Casey controlled the next two legs  to make  a 4-2 score final score to become the MariFlex Open girls champion.

Colin Roelofs winner of the tournament for boys had the day of his live. He not only won the MariFlex Open boys title with 5-0 of Joe Davis, he also is invited to play the 2013  Zuiderduin Masters Youth tournament.

Vlaardingen this weekend was  darts capital of the Netherlands and the Sportcentrum  Vlaardingen fort this weekend  the largest dart temple where more than 1,000 participants competed for the several titles.

On Saturday  the mixed pairs, men pairs and ladies pairs tournament have been played.

Robbie Green and Deta Hedman won the mixed pairs title with a 5-3 win over Gary Robson and Kirsi Viikainen . Together with Fallon Sherrock Deta Hedman also was in the ladies pairs final, and were very close to win this title as well. But in this final opponents Lorraine Farlam and Anastasia Dobromyslova  won the title  because in  7th and deciding leg Lorraine was the first to hit the double to make 3-4 and take the ladies title together with pairs partner Anastasia  back home.

The MariFlex Open mens pair title was for the Dutch Wesley Harms and Jeffrey de Graaf. The Dutch take a 3-0 lead before Tony Eccles and Glen Durrant scores their first and second point. More points the English double did not win because again Wesley and  Jeffrey won 2  legs in a row for a 5-2 final score and their first MariFlex Open men pairs final.

Lakeside to be increased to 40 men and 16 women

lakeside_largeThe 2014 Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships will be played from Saturday, January 4th to Sunday, January 12th, 2014 and will be bigger and better than ever!

The largest ever field of 40 Men and 16 Women will be competing for the most prestigious titles in World Darts.

The first three World Professional Championships from 1978 to 1980 were contested by  just 16 Men, but from 1981 to 2013 the field was  32 Men. The Women’s World Championship was introduced by the BDO in 2001 and has always been contested by 8 Women. Now it is being increased to 16 Women from the 2014 Lakeside World Professional onwards.

“This is a significant, exciting and progressive step forward”, says BDO Tournament Director Wayne Williams. “Not only does it illustrate the global increase in the higher standards of BDO and WDF players, but it also satisfies the growing TV audiences created by TV coverage from BBC, ESPN and Europsort.

“Needless to say, we are delighted to be providing even more valuable opportunities for our players – men and women – as we move the BDO forward and enhance the most prestigious Championships in world darts”.

The additional 8 Men for the 2014 World Pro will earn their places from competition within the worldwide regions of the WDF: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia, Baltic & Scandinavia and the USA.  All have regional ranking tables which are accessible on the BDO website from the Tables drop-down menu.

The remaining 32 players will come from the BDO Invitational Table, the World Professional International Play-Offs and include the Winmau World Masters Champion if not already qualified.

The 16 Women will come from the BDO Invitation Table, the World Professional International Play-Offs and include the Winmau World Masters Champion if not already Qualified.

The BBC contract for the BDO Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships has been extended by three years up to an including 2016.
