Oh good, it's another damn darts quiz. Friday and Saturday at 8pm

Post by Emulsfier » Thu Jun 11, 2020 9:57 pm

Time for another quiz. There wont be any particular topic for either day, so gather your knowledge.

Ill post the questions at the end here for those who might be timezone challenged.



Friday



1. Gerwyn Price achieved a back to back grand slam success in 2018 and 19. Who was the only player he beat in both years?

2 . In 2019, Michael Smith set the third highest ever average at the slam with Phil Taylor holding the top spot. Which very unlikely player holds the record for 2nd with 113.9?

3. Only one player who has never held a PDC tour card has had more than one televised 9-darter. Who he?

4. The 2009 European Championship featured the highest ever televised tournament average, with Phil Taylor averaging more than 109 against all 5 of his opponents. Who were they?

5. At the 2009 Euros, the match between Phil Taylor and Gary Anderson was the highest combined average in a ranked televised match for many years. But who are the players who set the current record for the highest televised combined average and where did it happen?

6. Only 5 Players can boast to having hit a ton plus average at the World Grand prix, whom?

7. Who posted the first televised 100+ average in 1979?

8. In the entire history of the BDO “majors” only two finals featured ton plus averages from both players, the 1992 world masters, and the 2007 world darts trophy. Who competed in those finals?

9. From Success to utter failure, who hold the record for the worst average at the grand slam?

10. James Wade made his PDC tv debut in 2003 at the UK open, beating a well known player in his first match. Who was it?

10. (I repeated myself) Name the 11 players who have finished dead last in the Premier league (bottom of the table pre introduction of judgement night or eliminated in 10th place post introduction).

11. (But I fucked it up) In 2004, Andy Callaby achieved his only acclaim by whitewashing Phil Taylor in sets at the Grand Prix, but who did he go on to beat in the next round?

11. (For real) In 1984, John Lowe completed the first televised nine-darter. What tournament was it, who did he throw it against, and how did he check out?

12. The well loved player Brendan Dolan has reached 5 televised semi-finals. What were they?

13. Dennis Priestley won the inaugural WDC world championship in 1994. Who did he beat along the way.

14. The world masters features three of the top 5 averages ever set by women on television. Which world masters womens final went on to become unquestionably the best televised womens match ever featuring two of these top averages, and who were the players?

15. There have been seven occasions when more than one nine darter has been thrown in the same tournament. Name the tournaments. Bonus points if you can name who did them.

3. Only one player who has never held a PDC tour card has had more than one televised 9-darter. Who he?
