Tip for playing Cricket

Funny, because all other numbers I pretty much hit the same mark on the line to throw at them. Must be that whole left brain, right brain thing.

Right eye dominant I bet? the 16 is usually just far enough to the left to cause a right hander to turn their heads a bit causing their view to change just a hair. If you want to make it so you don't have to move you need to focus on your follow through. When your head turns slightly it makes your follow through pull a bit because mechanically your eye & arm connection are used to being in the same line. So in effect your eye is pulling your arm a hair up and to the left. I hit a ton of trip 8's and a bunch of one hole out into the fat 16's.

Interesting. I too bang t8 all the time going for t16. I can't tell you how many times I've hit 7 8s going for 16s.

Man, it's like you have seen me throw at the 16's. I hit tons of T-8's just above the 16/8 dividing wire. And yes, I'm definitely right eye dominant since I have an astigmatism in my left eye that makes it a bit weaker than the right. That is the only number I tend to move over a bit when throwing at it. Not all the time, but if my darts are off, I'll slide over a couple inches on the oche.

Thanks Larry for bumping this. Don't know how I missed this piece of advice before.

Cricket is the best game in darts in my opinion. I always practice it throwing 20, 18, 19. Then 17, 16, 14. Then 3 at the bull. I never chase. I just like playing aggressive.

Bull is important especially at higher levels.

I heard some phenomenal cricket advice...

If you are the better player, try to extend the game. If you are playing a better player, try to shorten the game.

That's the theory I go with. Eventually, the better player's odds increase as the game last longer.
