90 average would see you get a card easily. Harrington's myth that you need a 100 average to win a game in the PDC is exactly that: a myth.

Yes a 90 avg is good i'm not talking about 100 avgs, you have to be able to handle the pressure and alot of others things, it's 4 days with 500 people trying for the same thing you are, it's totally different then playing local league

I believe that anyone who can play 90 average on a daily bases is more than capable to get a card. At least he can give it a try. Other thing though is if one has someone who would sponsor him because averages aren't everything that you need to compete in the PDC.

The thing is if you don't have the money, you're lost. The entry costs 450 pounds (with the entry fee 500) and I am still not sure if I can make it into PDC or not. The other thing is to have the money for travelling round the UK for the PCH or qualifications.

For example, I would mention some Czech darts players. I know from some sources that he has sponsors and money to travel on BDO tournaments. The question is: Will he be able to get the tour card in Hildesheim? He has some decent averages and his game is overall not that bad. We will see the answer in WCH against Keegan.

The other side: Frantisek Humpula. Last year's Q-School. He led 4-2 against Rene Eidams? (I think that it was him...) and lost 5-4 in the end. It seems he could have a good day or he really has what it takes to get the card. This year he signed a contract with Winmau and to be honest, he really looks like a one big Winmau advert... Big Grin So it looks he has the money and he could make it this year. Hard to say.

The conclusion is, you can have money and play, but it is not all. Sometimes, it needs a bit of luck and courage to do it.

Several czech players attended the Q School last year. Franta also played some of those youth Tours then, the others played most (if not all) of the qualifications they could enter due to having played in the Q School. Certainly a huge experience for all of them. Karel also managed to win two of those qualifications - including the one for the Worlds.

BTW, be sure you couldn't make it to the PDC even if they allowed you to play with six darts within one turn...lol :-)))

I won't say anything to the last sentence. It is just silly you have written now. I don't have even money to do it so why would I actually do that.

Couple of familiar names there from Austrian darts! Hope they do well!

How many places are available in total?
8 for the uk/ire qualifiers
4 for the euro qualifiers
? other places on a pro-rata basis?

Given 249 for euro qualifiers how many we expecting in the uk qualifiers?
Reply
Not sure how many additional cards there are but think it is 18 - if so then I expect the split will be an additional 12 for the UK and 6 for the Euro. As there were over 600 last year for both UK and Euro combined I expect the UK ones this year to have 400-500 entrants, but that is pure guesswork.

Wow, just seen a post on facebook that someone entered the UK school and is entrant 839. Not sure if that includes the Euro entrants as well, but if so then that's still 600 for the UK with a couple of weeks to go before the cut off date!!!

That's going to be a tough competition. I saw names of Czech and Slovak players on Twitter and I know there is many of them who are able to win a card. However, it's a lot of matches. You can be averaging 90 in most of games but then you slip down to some 70 in one match and it's game over for you. The most consistent players win.

Few names I can't see I expected, like Humpula and Portela, the later may have entered the UK one but he entered this last year.
