Btw, one freak average doesn't change that Bennett hasn't lived up to the hype in the slightest thus far.

Anyone capable of qualifying for either the PDC or BDO or WDF world championships is a good darts player

He is 17 years old. What were your expectations of him thus far for you to say he hasn’t lived upto the hype?

Berks like this who thought his success was a certainty.

I believe he will make a big splash and due to the hype and his antics, he will get a lot of publicity.
Time will tell.

So you’ve not actually answered the question. I stand by what I said but didn’t put a timescale on it. Put it this way, I didn’t expect him to be winning majors at 17. With your comment maybe you did??

The plus side now is that Bennett isn't hyped as much any more and can now try to become a decent darts player in whichever level he chooses

You and others claimed hyped him up to be the next big thing.

MVG smashed Adams to win the BDO Masters when he was 17. Bennett hasn't done anything remotely as impressive as that. Heck he hasn't even won a tour card and was beaten in the juniors at Ally Pally.

It’s probably to his long term benefit that he hasn’t yet won a tour card.
I know he has played in junior PDC events but can he play WDF events? Maybe he could play Modus?

He may well be the next big thing. I can’t think of any darts player at such a young age who was hyped as much. I don’t really know much about MVG at the same age tbh. The fact he hasn’t won a tour card yet will probably help in the long run.

What exactly were your expectations of him as a 17 year old?

Edit- I would say qualifying for the BDO worlds at just turned 15? Is a pretty decent achievement.

Well if Bennett was the child prodigy that MVG at 17 you'd expect him to at least have won the juniors worlds and made more of a splash on the development/youth tour.

If a 17 year old MVG was active in today's game he certainly would have achieved a lot more by now.
