Gary Anderson 7 – 6 Phil Taylor
“ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Gary, Gary… Gary, Gary, Gary, Gary Anderson”
What a final! Couldn’t have asked for anything more than this, absolutely fantastic action including a 180 bounce out from Anderson!
A couple of things to note as well, after watching the PDC on TV for years the crowd at the World Championship is super friendly, just as long as you do not talk about football! the moment you do it turns nasty as fuck! the crowd is also much much louder and is muted for TV. The final thing is the quality of the darts itself. The PDC players are so much better than the BDO one’s by a mile. I knew they were but I watched a bit of the DBO darts before I wrote this and scores of 40 were common, 140’s were cheered and 180’s were very rare. 180’s are expected by the hat-full in the PDC.
Never made this one, a late breakfast meant we would have arrived ten minutes into the first half which was fine.
The closure of the Central line between Holborn and Marble Arch however was another story so we went to the pub instead.
