Darts: Peter Wright Wins UK Open (£70,000)

Tags: darts, Gerwyn Price, PDC, Peter Wright, rugby.
Posted on Monday, March 06, 2017 by "T".

Peter Wright won the first major Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) title of his career last night after defeating former professional rugby player Gerwyn Price 11-6 in the final. Even though Price had four 180s and the highest checkout of the match (117), Wright won the final three legs of the tournament, finishing in style with an 85 checkout (19, 16 and bull)

It was the third time Wright made it to the final of UK Open after losing in 2015 and 2016.

"The fans have given me fantastic support, not just this year but also for the last two years," Wright told BBC. "I don't want to put a downer on it, we had no Michael van Gerwen here and no Phil Taylor, but I still had the pressure of being favourite when you had Gary Anderson, Adrian Lewis and all the other fantastic players in the tournament. It was a lot of pressure and I was happy just to get to the final, three years on the trot in one of the hardest tournaments. To win it is brilliant."

The 46-year-old Scotsman will now get to enjoy his victory for a few days before it's time for a Premier League match against England's James Wade on Thursday, March 9.

Wade struggled in his last Premier League match, missing way too many easy checkouts and posting a poor average score. Wright has won the past 6 matches against Wade without much difficulty.

bet365, LeoVegas and many other trusted bookmakers offer around 1.7 odds on Peter Wright to win the match and about 1.5 on Wright to score the most 180s. Should be two great bets!

It was verry interesting to see how many people like darts in tv shows. It was also a boom like the big poker boom in the tv 10 years before. The atmosphre was like in a football stadium Blink

Congratulations to Peter Wright from Scotland for winning the UK Open, earning himself £70,000. His family, friends, and fans must be very happy. He has had some crazy hairstyles over the years. I wonder what is the secret behind his hair.

Well then congratulations to Peter Wright!

All I know about darts is that triple 20 is better than bullseye which I think makes no sense at all. Also, I know you have to finish at zero to win. So when you get close to zero you have to hit the exact right number to win. Which is why In the end if you're not good at darts it's only a luck game... lol. skills are only involved when you're good at it.

Although this game is boring to watch on tv, it is fun to play.
And the money from the tournament for this kind of game i think is very good.
But you need lots and lots of practice on it Smile
70k pounds for shooting at a target while drinking beer Smile

Once almost ten years ago I lost close to seventy euros on a darts bet. Never ever since I have come close to wager money on darts again. I think I won't start it right now either.
I hate all pub games anyway.

Peter Wright played fantastic darts all weekend and thoroughly deserved to win this title. I think that he is the second best, after MVG, darts player in the world and will be challenging for a lot more titles

This is a really good two bets .... and of course in such a game as darts it is difficult to make predictions for two good players .... so if you bet then you need to rely not on the strength of the players but on luck ... probably
