Club Night Results - Thursday 16th Jan

36 players entered the club night singles with 17 qualifying for the knockout stage. But 2014 could see more of the same as 2013 with Monte Tuhua winning the final against Mike Collett. Monte will be looking to repeat his feats of 2013 this year and has certainly started off in the right vein ! Results...

Thursday Club Night Results

Club Night Results Thursday 9th Jan 2014.

14 players qualified for the knockout stages, with a fairly low turnout for the first club night of the year. Some of the big names were absent tonight, namely Mike Day and Monte Tuhua, but they will return in the coming weeks to provide some stiff competition from here on. Jeff Harold took out the final from Peggy Wikaira, and Jeff is looking good to put up a challenge to Mike and Monte.

BDO World Champs - Mike Day 0 Glen Durrant 3

A great effort by Mike against the number 11 ranked BDO player Glen Durrant saw Mike eventually lose out 3 sets to nil. Mike lost each of the 3 sets 2 games to 3 so he pushed Durrant all the way. Well done Mike, you have done yourself proud and with a bit more luck may gone on further. Next year Mike !

Follow Mike Day at the BDO World Champs on a Live Stream

Mike Day is the third game on in the Wednesday Jan 7th evening session. The games start at 6pm UK time so Mike could be on the oche around 8pm UK time which would be 9am Thursday Jan 8th here in NZ, this time is only my approximation though.
If you haven't seen the comments from the last few previous posts here about Mike there is an 'Anonymous' comment that there is live streaming of the BDO World Champs at http://sportsbun.com/bdo-world-darts-championship-2014-live-streaming-online/ 
I haven't been to the live stream myself yet but let us know in the comments if you have tried it.

BDO World Champs - Mike Day 3 Sam Head 0

Mike Day has got off to a great start beating Englishman Sam Head in their Preliminary Round clash. Mike now goes on to play Glen Durrant of England in the First Round proper. One early shock in the tournament is that reigning world champ Scott Waites has already been knocked out in the first round by Alan Norris. If Mike beats Durrant he will go on to play Norris in the Second Round. Go Mike !

BEST of LUCK to Mike Day at the BDO World Champs

Mike Day is hours away from his debut in the BDO World Championship at the Lakeside in England. He will play Sam Head (England) in the Preliminary Round and will progress to the First Round of 32, where he will play Gen Durrant (England) if he wins.

Mike is a 500/1 outsider with the bookies to become World Champion but if he plays up to his potential Mike will certainly put these odds to rest. His opponent Sam Head is only 20 and ranked 52 in the BDO compared to Mike's BDO ranking of 454 which would explain the bookies 500/1 odds but Mike is surely better than this ranking indicates.

Sam is rated at 200/1 by the bookies to win the tournament and is a Hampshire County player. He is the youngest player to qualify directly through the BDO rankings. On the tour this year he has been a finalist at the England Open, England Classic, Romanian Open and the Sunparks Masters.

Mike's game will be "Game On" in the evening session on Sunday 5th Jan (UK time)... 'Best of Luck' Mike, we are sure you will do yourself proud !
