With the largely awful preliminary and poor first rounds finally out of the way (but somehow a better standard than last year - I blame the new boards) the men's second round starts this afternoon. Arguably the match of day 5 at Lakeside is the afternoon closer: a repeat of last year's first round clash between Canada's Jeff Smith and three time champion Martin Adams. Wolfie was stunned with a 3-0 defeat that eventually saw the Silencer reach the final, but a repeat of his performance in that epic victory over Ryan Joyce will surely enact revenge on the newest BDO loyalist.

Other notable clashes today include 2015 champion Scott Mitchell against Belgium's Geert de Vos, who was involved in the highest standard match of Round 1 against Australia's Raymond Smith, Stockport stalwart Darryl Fitton playing escape artist Pip Blackwell and number 1 seed Glen Durrant taking on the very dim Paul Hogan; another 97 average from Duzza will surely be more than enough to dispose of Crocodile Dundee.

Inexplicably, there's still one first round women's match to go with Aussie Corrine Hammond against Canuck Patricia Farrell. Great organisation, lads: is having both the men and the women's first rounds ending on the same day too much to ask? Oh, wait: this is the BDO, so of course it is.

Coverage starts at 12:05pm on Channel 4 before switching to BT Sport 1 at 6:45pm.

All matches are best of 7 sets except women's matches (best of 3 sets). Women's matches are in greentext.

>Today's matches (12:05pm - 5:00pm)
Geert de Vos (15) v Scott Mitchell (2)
>Corrine Hammond v Patricia Farrell
Jeff Smith v Martin Adams (5)

>Tonight's matches (6:45pm - 10:45pm)
Darryl Fitton (10) v Pip Blackwell

how come they split darts into men's and women's? you throw the thing like two metres, there shouldn't be an inherent advantage between the sexes

Women are just shite at it. As bobby george said once live on air "the women, they get all emotional"
>>
>>73596603

They don't have the concentration or hand eye co-ordination

It's the same with snooker, there is no physical advantage so it has to be mental
>>
>>73596603
You won't promote women taking part in the sport that way, that's like asking why there's a national Japanese-only competition when they can just take part in the worlds. They won't qualify for it because the game isn't as developed for them yet, you allow them their own constricted competition in the hopes that it improves.

Actually it's financial.

If you're the best man at the sport you can make a living at it.
If you're the best woman at a sport you'll still need another job to make ends meet.

Thus women don't commit to practise as much as men and never achieve the same heights. Snooker, Pool, Chess, Darts... bigger rewards would equal better players.

Judit Polgar approves of this message.

Can women still play at the PDC? Haven't seen one since Anastasia
>>
>>73596957
Because tennis is physical and women are weaker.

I was talking about non-physical sports. Table games (snooker, pool etc), Darts, Chess.
>>
>>73596835
>They don't have the concentration or hand eye co-ordination

How come then that woman is able to give you the best handie while looking you deep in the eyes?
>>
Stephen Fry once said that men are better at sports because they were invented by men, to showcase male skills. So if men have a natural advantage at something, it gets turned into a sport, while if women are better at something, it doesn't. I honestly think that is the most likely explanation for the state of things.

It seems to happen a lot that the player who throws second in a leg is absolutely JUST. They don't just lose the leg; they get demolished. And then, when they throw first in the next leg, the other player becomes comically terrible. It's weird.

A woman was top 8 in the world at chess at one point, men and women. There's no reason other non-physical sports couldn't be the same.
>>
>he's a big guy
>>
Treble 5s for show, 90 averages for dough
>>
>>73597415
And Magnus Carlsen is a man who is meant to be the GOAT. Therefore, by your logic, any man could be GOAT. There comes a point when talent becomes involved too. If Magnus Carlsen was a woman, maybe he too would have never progressed beyond "top eight at one point".
>>
This Australian woman would get it. I hope she's not a lesbian.
>>
>>73597468
I don't think it's outrageous to suggest that if women were encouraged to do some of these non-physical things from an early age that they could be as good. Polgar is a classic example, she was brought up in a chess hosuehold where all her sisters played chess and were all better than anyone ITT for doing it. She was even better obviously.

If as many women were encouraged to play chess from an early age like her and it is just part of their life in the same way I see no reason to assume that women couldn't be equally as good. There is certainly nothing we know about within the brain that would suggest this.

To be fair to the Canadian womanlet, like the darting forum described for Webster, chucking a dart at double top is like throwing a beachball over blackpool tower for her.

Well that was a laugh at the end.

Paul Hogan, in the fifth leg of the fourth set at 3-0 up on number 1 seed Glen Durrant, pulled his sole match dart into D16 when wanting 16 with three darts in hand, lost the set and then won just 2 of the next 14 legs to exit the competition in truly embarrassing fashion - less "Crocodile Dundee", more "Choke-o-dile Dummy".

The only other big matches of note saw 2015 champion Scott Mitchell sent packing by Belgium's Geert de Vos, who has subsequently had his darts stolen (classic xenophobic Lakeside crowd behaviour there) and Wolfie made up for his first round exit last year with a crushing defeat of Canada's Jeff Smith.

It's ladies day tomorrow with the women's quarter-finals and the remaining men's round 2 matches, alongside the youth final:

>Nathan Girvan v Justin van Tergouw (youth)
>Lisa Ashton v Fallon Sherrock
>Mark McGeeney v Scott Waites
>Trina Gulliver v Aileen de Graaf

>Casey Gallagher v Corrine Hammond
>Krzysztof Ratajski v Darius Labanauskas
>Anastasia Dobromyslova v Lorraine Winstanley
>Richard Veenstra v Danny Noppert
