Besides, if you work on consistent scoring in that context, you end up switching a lot.  You do this to set up the finish, reducing the number of darts thrown.  When you have that as your mind set, the max's will just come.

Can't comment how this fits in with Cricket, sorry...

Good darting and good luck...

In my short time playing, I have to agree with this.  I've played a bunch of -01 games now with a decent average only to see it get whittled down due to consistently missing outs/doubles..

That said, and to answer the OP, two-ish months.  Started playing/practicing seriously this past May and hit my first 180 in July.  Hit my second (ever) in Aug and have yet to hit another..  I hit sporadic 120+ and sporadic but fewer 140s.

I too completely agree with that. Having played for around 18 months and satisfied with improvements made so far, I have found that aiming to end the leg in as few darts as possible has been most helpful. Besides this, I believe that taking each dart as a unique event can help, as it focuses your mind on the shot in hand and before you know it, you've hit a maximum...
