Leonard Gates put on quite the show at the inaugural New Orleans Dart Party, posting impressive numbers on his way to winning the 1001 warm up event. Each round was best-of-1, but each leg afforded the opportunity get into a rhythm, something that Gates took full advantage of, carrying 100+ averages in 4 out of 5 legs.
Darts Legend Eric Bristow MBE has died at age 60. Five time World Champion between 1980 and 1986, Eric also won five World Masters titles and was a founder player of the PDC when it was formed in 1993.
PDC chairman Barry Hearn said he would “always be a legend in the world of darts and British sport. It’s just unbelievable. He was working as normal in hospitality, started feeling ill and collapsed and died. Our thoughts go out to his wife and family because this has come as a massive shock to the whole sport of darts.”
