I don't think I've put this up before (looked but didn't see it) and I hope this doesn't cause an uproar.

I have played darts for about 3 1/2 years total...2 years in the early 90's and started back up again Jan 2018....about a year of that being soft tip. I'm terrible at math and worse when pressured but I still have learned some outs and have them committed to memory. But a lot of them I just don't know. So.....I use this trick or method to help me out and hopefully it may help someone else until they have learned the outs.

So here's my method....it works better when looking at the dart board.

Take whatever number your on.....say 73.

Take away 60.....the highest one dart score or trip 20

That leaves 13.....not an out

Now add 3 to 13.....the next highest score or trip 19

That gives you 16...a great out

So your shot is trip 19-double 8

That's it...the whole method....you just keep adding 3 until you get your double. Like I said,,,it helps if your looking at the board because you just look at the numbers as you add.....

Another example.....say...87.....take away 60 equals 27,not an out....add 3 (T19) is 30,an out but better to be had,.. add 3 (T18) is 33,nope... add 3 (T17) is 36, ahh a good one.......your shot is T17, D18.

It sounds confusing but it's really not...like I said..I am terrible at math and I can do it. Now this doesn't use the DB or gives you the BEST out shot at times..but it will give you a out. This is meant to help shooters like me to help in a pinch when you need it...it's not meant to replace learning your outs....just helps until you do.

If this helps at least one person it's worth it.......shoot well all and have fun!
