World Darts Championships 2018 @Lakeside - The Greatest Show On Earth


Decent match here between Scotty Waites and Dean Reynolds.

Waites just levelled at 1-1 in sets.


Scott Waites took 5 months away from darts this year when his kid was born. Of course he kept his full time job.

And he’s still playing nice darts.

I would hate to see him playing 12 months of the year on the PDC circuit.


Also Dean Reynolds missed dart 8 on a 9 dart finish. Instead of a mass booing as you get in PDC there was a mooted applause so as not to disrupt Waites’s throw. Reynolds responded with a silent clap motion.


Reynolds still ended up in the madhouse on his 9 dart leg :laughing:


Brilliant finish by Waites to take out 116 for a 2-1 set lead.


Unreal by Scotty to take out 116 to win the decisive 5th leg of the third set with Dean waiting on tops.


Waites also walked out on he’s sick wife. Not a real man.




Adrian Lewis is a bastion of morality in such matters.


3-1 to Scotty now. Some cracking finishing in that last set.


Unreal exhibition stuff by Scotty.

Finishes 68 in 2 darts with D18 followed by D16.

Dean could only look on and laugh at the brilliance of it all.


Quality match this. A 2-dart 93 finish from Dean to reduce the deficit to 3-2.


And this time Scotty takes out 68 with T12 and D16.

He’s one leg away now.


Dean has broken to level set 6 at 2-2. He’ll throw first in the deciding leg!


Incredible 112 check out by Scott to win the set 3-2 and the match 4-2 with Dean waiting on 54.

A veritable Lakeside classic.

Dean Reynolds is one for the future.


Didn’t see the final match of the evening but it sounds like a cracker so I’ll watch it back in full on YouTube.


Couple of “Dean” questions @Sidney

  1. Is the Dean Reynolds that played last night the former professional snooker player ?

  2. Is Lorraine Winstanley related to Dean Winstanley in any way ?


No and yes (wife).


Has anyone hit a 100 average yet?


Our own Killian Heffernan is level at 1 set all in the youth final at the moment. 170 and a 156 out shots so far and one of these lads is only 15. Incredible standard in the BDO.
