Mensur Suljovic hits ‘best ever’ 9-darter in Bulls Super League!

Mensur Suljovic produced arguably the most remarkable 9-darter in history at the Bulls Super League Eastern Europe on Sunday afternoon. Suljovic, who has established himself in the PDC’s top 20, hit the perfect leg in his typically unconventional style.

The Austrian kicked off the leg with successive 170’s (T20, T20, Bull), before completing the 9-darter with a magnificent 161 checkout. The 9-darter included an unprecedented three bullseyes, which led Sky Sports expert Wayne Mardle to label it as ‘without doubt the best 9-darter ever hit in competition play’. He certainly has a case!

This is the second 9-dart leg recorded in the history of the Bulls Super League. It was hit twelve months ago by Suljovic’s younger compatriot Rowby-John Rodriguez, but ironically, Mensur was playing Rowby’s younger brother Roxy-James when he completed the feat.

The Bull’s Super League is open to 16 players within Eastern Europe and it’s played within a round-robin format. The winner of the tournament is assured of a place in the preliminary round of the William Hill World Darts Championships, although given Suljovic’s healthy ranking, his place at Ally Pally is already assured.

Paul Michael darts

Today I had the opportunity to conduct a Q/A interview with Paul Michael, Managing Director at Darts GB. Paul, who turns 60 this year, has been involved in darts within some capacity for 47 years! His enthusiasm and extensive knowledge for the game is admirable and made for a fascinating interview.

Paul is heavily involved on the exhibition circuit; arranging exhibitions with a number of top darting professionals, from both past and present.  Paul has worked very closely with the likes of Eric Bristow, John Lowe and Bob Anderson in Tenerife, where they frequently holiday together. Paul has also worked with Bobby George, Cliff Lazarenko, Mike Gregory, Adrian Lewis, Colin Lloyd, Rod Harrington, and Wayne Mardle amongst others.

van Barneveld is Not Disinterested; He’s Diabetic!

After Netherlands suffered semi-final defeat to Scotland in the 2015 World Cup of Darts, Wayne Mardle launched a scathing attack on Raymond van Barneveld’s performance and character.

Van Barneveld was way below-par as he lost 4-1 to Gary Anderson, before struggling considerably in the doubles decider. Van Barneveld averaged 82 against the World Champion and failed to rectify this as he paired up with van Gerwen in the pairs.

It is rather fitting that arguably the best encounter of the league phase was the final match of the final week. Dave Chisnall and Michael van Gerwen were both vying for top spot and served up an extremely special contest. There were a few contenders in this category; Raymond van Barneveld’s win over Phil Taylor in Glasgow was a phenomenal contest, Chisnall and Kim Huybrechts were also involved in a thrilling battle in week 4, however this just edges it.
