    So Frustrated!

    Just been to my countys Gold Cup Darts Qualifiers, played blinding but had the worst luck ever!

    I know must of you probably dont have a clue about darts but this is a big tournament, you need to be averaging 85 plus to get anywhere.

    In the pairs competition i averaged 111, but my partner only managed 55, so that was out the window :-(

    Then in the singles I got to the last 16, best of 5 and it was 2-2 with the other geezer to throw first (can be a deciding factor)

    I stormed ahead and hit a 180,140,117, left on 64, matey on 220. He hit a 180 leaving double 20, i ballsed up the 64 abd he hit double 20 first dart!

    Frustrated so much felt like i was gonna win then was robbed!

    Sorry for the long drunken rant & please excuse any spelling mistakes, i know theres 1 or 2 dart players on here so hoping for sone sympathy really :-|

    Darts is a cracking sport! Played a few times down at my local but was never any good. People used to take the P out of my "spear throwing technique" lol

    Keep plodding on though mate....

    Gooood Arras!!!
