During the 7-2 defeat against Arkles, I was drafted in to help the team again.
This time was different however, I was using my own darts this time and granted I hadn’t used them for a while, they were still the darts I was used to playing with.
Unlike the other times I had played, the starting double wasn’t the problem! I managed to get off on my second dart on D13 and a lot quicker than my opponent too, giving me an early upper hand.
I slowly but surely plucked away at the 301 but it was the checkout where I began to run into trouble. More and more darts were coming and going at various doubles and my opponent was creeping up behind me.
I ended up on D8, D4 and D2 yet I just couldn’t find the double and I would be punished as my opponent went out on D4.
It was certainly a better experience than my previous games, but a good learning curve nonetheless.
