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.

Scott’s waite is over – as he lifts Lakeside world title


Super Scott Waites was crowned world champion with a clinical 7-1 drubbing of “nearly man” Tony O’Shea to win the £100,000 top prize.

The Yorkshireman who had failed to reproduce his true form in five previous appearances was in defiant mood, blasting out six 180s, as his power-scoring eclipsed the performance of  a below-par O’Shea.

Stockport-based O’Shea had been hoping it would be third time lucky after two previous final defeats but has to chalk up his seventh major defeat in a major BDO tournament.

Waites becomes the 22nd new name on the trophy since the event was launched on the calendar back in 1978  when the late great Leighton Rees from Wales became the inaugural winner.

Since then there have been winners from six different nations – England, Wales, Scotland, Canada, Australia and Holland. The win this year for Waites gave England their 13th winner.

Waites becomes only the third winner of the title from Yorkshire,  joining Dennis Priestley and John Walton as White Rose victors, while at the same time thwarting 51-year-old O’Shea’s bid to become only the second fifty-something to lift the world crown.

O’Shea had produced a 30.47 per dart average to reach the final, whitewashing 2001 World Champ John Walton 3-0 in his opening game and then dashing the hopes of Steve Douglas  4-1. Mighty Kong, Robbie Green was Silverback’s Quarter Final victim (5-3), while flying Dutchman Wesley Harms was grounded by rampant O’Shea in the Semi-Final  6-4. Read more

Anastasia chalks up world title hat trick, flooring battling Lisa Ashton

BDO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2013,.womens final ashdon v dobroysolvafrom

Anastasia Dobromyslova clinched her third world title, defying a battling performance from debutant finalist Lisa Ashton 2-1. Bolton-based Ashton hit a maximum and an 80 checkout but was powerless to stop the 28-year-old Russian from chalking up her third world title.

It was an entertaining 30-minute encounter between second seed Dobromyslova and the veteran England international, with Dobromyslova holding her nerve to clinch the title on double six.

Afterwards Dobromyslova said: “I still don’t realise I have done it. It was such a tough game. If it had gone to 2-2 in the final set it could have been anyone’s title.

“Being here in the final before meant I know how to handle myself. I would just like to thank my family and friends for all their support,” said the newly-crowned champ.

Beaten finalist Ashton admitted: “I am gutted at losing but was really pleased to get through to the final. I don’t think the break in the game did me any good.” Read more

For full brackets, stats and summary of each match, click here

Silent man Christian Kist let his darts do the talking as he toppled favourite Tony O’Shea 7-5 to lift the Lakeside world championship at his first attempt.

The debutant 25-year-old Dutchman, an out-of-work road worker, who began the tournament as a 66/1 outsider steamrollered his way to the title in 146 minutes blasting out eight maximums, a120 checkout and two 12-dart finishes to beat the man double his age.

But brave Tony O’Shea almost staged a remarkable comeback after battling back form 6-2 behind to 6-5.

Kist becomes only the third player from the Netherlands to lift the world crown, following in the footsteps of Raymond van Barneveld and Jelle Klassen – the last Dutch winner back in 2006. Both sent messages of support before the final. Read more
