1983 World Championship (Eric Bristow v Dave Lee)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e770Nlx5Urs

Love the pub atmosphere of pints on the table, cigarettes in the off hand with sips and puffs between throws.

Aye it's funny seeing the players in the 80's walking on stage with pints in hand.

I’ve been a Deller fan since I started playing in the early 80s, so I feel obligated to post the 1983 Championship match between Deller and Bristow.

One of my favourites too, the arrogance of Bristow not going for the bull with his last dart and Deller sticking it too him with his 3 dart checkout.

I bet he had a few sleepless nights over that decision.

I'm not sure if this match has previously been posted on the Forum or if I just stumbled across it on YouTube one night. It's the 1980 BDO Golden Darts Championship final between Ceri Morgan and Eric Bristow.

I'm not going to pretend for a second that it is a bona-fide 'classic', but I've got a soft spot for it because of Ceri Morgan. He was one of those players I vividly remember from when I was a kid watching darts back in the 80s. And that was despite the fact he was never a top top player. I think it was a combination of his very unique throwing style and the fact that he looked every other Geography teacher I had all through secondary school.

Just your link based on the YT video identifier.  But don't expect everyone to know a search for that - even it's a perfect keyword search.  Gets into source code and all that fun stuff.

Does that mean no one else in the thread can see the video in my post? That's weird, 'cos the video shows up in the thread when I'm viewing it.

Don't mind me. I'm the least tech savvy person on the planet. This reply was sent by carrier pigeon.

Um no, link works fine.  And the 2nd link is the same as the first.  Only the first is embedded.  I just gave away the secret in the Search tutorial thread:

I bet he did, he sure did make up for it in the 84 final. What a game from Bristow!

The end of the 80's and another classic between these two greats.

That's a great find. His scoring was amazing considering he used quite chunky looking darts.
