(Dartsnutz University: All Levels) The Infamous 10 Finishes
(Excerpts from "The Definitive Darts Coaching Manual!)


The Infamous 10 finishes:

90
20-20-Bull
60-D15
20-60-D5
If your opponent is on a finish, you must consider this option. Missing the treble 18 does not leave a two dart out shot without you having to hit a double or treble on your next dart.

119
57-leaving 62
19-leaving 100
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 99. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

122
54-leaving 68
18-leaving 104
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 102. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

123
57-leaving 66
19- leaving 104
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 103. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot

125
Bull-leaving 75
25-leaving 100
54-leaving 71
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 105. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

126
57-leaving 69
19-leaving 107
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 106. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

128
54-leaving 74
18-leaving 110
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 108. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

129
57-leaving 72
19 leaving 110
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 109. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

132
Bull-leaving 82
25-leaving 107
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 112. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

135
Bull-leaving 85
25-leaving 110
If you went 20s and hit a single you would be left on 115. This then does not leave you a two dart out shot.

The one I see most people struggle on is 90. Just last night in an online match the opponent went 18's with 90 left. A big no no. Needless to say, I got another turn Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Yes, those are the standard ways.

It's fascinating how many people (ordinary 20 shooters) start 126 on 20 but 127 on 19. You can watch and shake your head, they do not understand the game. But in the end, you need to take advantage of it.

I know a couple of players who watch very closely what the opponent plays and throwing "wrong" really gets them embarrassed, their heart rate goes up, they start thinking, want to explain the game to you, or try to hard to win, so this can be a wise choice now and then.

This is great stuff. These outshot combinations need to be pounded into a dart players head. They are THE way to go if your opponent is sitting on a nice out and you may not get another chance at the oche.

But what if you're in a situation that you wouldn't be trying to finish on the bull anyway? I know that personally, if I'm sitting on 126 and my opponent isn't on a reasonable finish I'm going straight at the 20's. I'm not gonna shoot the bull in this situation, so why set it up? I already have a rhythm going on T20.

Same thing for shots like 122 or 128. If my opponent isn't on an out, why bother with the 18's?

JohnK is correct. You have to take into account where the opponent is. If they're WAY back it makes more sense to go another way. Try and set yourself the best ya can.

The 122 always got my attention when I saw a pro going for it. I always found it as one of those "what do I do now"? shots. Interesting stuff.

Plus one. Only cause I owe you one though Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I always go 18's for 90, I'm confident on the T18 and D9 doesn't bother me at all, so 95% of the time I get at least 1 dart at a double

Personally I find that 70 is my 'bogey' check out number ! I usually go for the treble 10 and miss it ! I'll hit a single 15 and miss the second single 15, I hate that bloody 70 !!!...J.D.Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Maybe my % is off a little but I think it would be more than 40% of the time. So far this season I've finished 90 in 2 darts 3 times (T18, D18), 104 (18,T18,D16) and 144 (T18,T18,D18)

But I like 18's, still very good options that I personally hadn't considered.
