Darts Buddy

Best Player(s) you have personally thrown against
I went to a tournament this past weekend which was a benefit tournament for a fellow player who recently passed away.  I traveled all day and really only went to hang out. I got convinced to play and drew Robbie Phillips.  I didn't know who he was at the time, so I figured I had a chance.  Needless to say he destroyed me. Right before we threw he informed me he was inducted to the Youth Darts Hall of Fame in 99. I later found out he is on the U.S. Men's National team and was ranked in the top 5 in the U.S.  He was really nice, and a great shot. I don't go to many of the big tournaments in the U.S (LV open etc.) as I would not get very far, and waste money.  I'm a pretty good player but definitely not on the "next level" so to speak, and most likely never will be.   Some other notables I have drawn are Chris Linkous, and Mark Fair.
Who else have you all gotten to play? Did you ever play a pro and not know it until after such as myself?

Probably our own member Leaky to be honest.

I remember one particular time that we played each other in the first round of a little tournament...

Best of 5 legs....

I beat him in the first leg... he then proceeded to throw 3 legs in a row that totaled 35 darts.... (12, 11, 12)

That's pretty much how it goes every time I play him.... mainly because he's an arsehole.

A guy in my league who plays for the team we face tomorrow played super league for some time, cant remember his name but everytime I draw him he brings out the best in me, but i always lose, I played him 8 years ago at an away event and after smashing me in the first leg i took the second leg with 15 darts, he took the third set with 11 darts,.......I finally played him again 6 weeks ago after my break from darts and having only played a few games prior he again smashed the 1st leg, I took the second with 16 darts and he 11 darted me in the 3rd again. either side of this match ive averaged very very poor darts

love playing him, but hate losing

Played Adrian Lewis twice in the first round when the Las Vegas Dessert Classic had four qualifiers and Adrian was just getting started.  Lost 4-0 and 4-2 - I knew in advance it was going to be a tough hoe - The nice thing about is - at least for me - is you can take the mindset of there's nothing to lose - I think a lot of people struggle to win when "it's someone they know they should beat" as they put a lot of pressure on themselves.

Would that be the year that Lewis got his 'Jackpot' moniker?

Umberger was a US player in the 80's and 90's.  I'm not aware that Unicorn ever sponsored him, but Voks did at one point.  They now sell what was his signature model as the Dominator:
