As a result of his performance today Tony West has taken over the top spot in the BDO Invitation Tables with 67 points.

In the best of 3 Sets Womens Final Fran lost the first set 3-0 and was two legs down in the second before rallying strongly to edge out Deta Hedman. Fran won both the second and third sets by 3-2 scorelines. In the Semi-Finals both finalists had 5-1 (legs) wins over Irina Armstrong and Karin Krappen respectively.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: BDO INVITATION TABLES & WINMAU SEEDINGS

Several BDO recognised darts events were played after the closing date for the 2010 Winmau World Masters Championships.  ie: 1st September 2010 and were not included in the determination of the seeding for the 2010 Winmau Championships.

These were;

British Open, English Classic, Europe Cup, New South Wales Masters, Welsh Classic and Welsh Masters.

The results from the events listed above were entered into the BDO Invitation Tables and they were included in the determination of the line-up and the seeding for the 2011 Lakeside World Professional Championships.

The same events cannot be included in the determination of the line-up and seeding for the 2012 Championships – however the player’s achievements in those events need to be recognised and have been recorded separately.

Consideration of the seeding for the 2011 Winmau World Masters Championships must take into account all those events played after 1st September 2010 up to and including the cut-off date set for the 2011 Championships. ie: 1st September 2011. {provisional}

To avoid confusion with this situation it will be necessary to set up and maintain a separate table for the seeding of the 2011 Winmau World Championships.

POINTS ALLOCATION ADJUSTMENTS

The BDO has received representations from players and respective officials concerning the categorisation allocated for the Czech Open and the Northern Ireland Open played in October 2010.

 These took place before the release of the 2011 review of the BDO Invitation Tables Criteria

1st November 2010.

After consideration of the situation created by the late release, the points allocation for the two events have been re-adjusted to the level offered under the 2010 review.

Links to the new Winmau seeding tables can be found in the "Tables" section of the main menu.

                   SCOTT WAITES WINS GRAND SLAM



The BDO sends congratulations to SCOTT WAITES on a fantastic 16-12 victory over James Wade to win the Daily Mirror Grand Slam of Darts and a cheque for £100,000.

His amazing win came after he initially went 8-0 behind, and must go down in darts history as one of the greatest comebacks of all time.

“When it went to 8-0, I just told myself with true Yorkshire grit to concentrate and just play my darts, and suddenly I drew level and then went in front!   Once that happened I wasn’t going to go behind again.  But to be honest, it still hasn’t sunk in and I will be in work in the morning!”

Scott’s delighted wife, Sally was there to cheer him on to victory and after taking  the

runner-up spot last year, he’s now the 2010 Grand Slam Champion and the pride of Yorkshire and the BDO.

DAVE WYKES HAS PASSED AWAY

Today I, and all in Coventry and Warwickshire darts are totally devastated at the passing of Dave Wykes. Dave was a popular player, men's team manager and super-league secretary of the county. Dave was also instrumental in setting up the BDO players forum along with Adrian Cooper, a forum which is still going strong. He was also co-organiser of the Coventry and Midland Opens.

Dave had been suffering from a brain tumour for the last year and now and he has been taken away from us. He leaves his wife Joanne and five lovely Children and a grandchild.

 Rest In peace my dear dear friend. No words can express how I feel at your loss.

God bless you mate.

 Neil Pritchard

Chairman

Warwickshire Darts Organisation.
