    So on a whim I tossed a few games of Bob'27 and the first I hit in the 100's, then the second and I knew I was right on the edge...next game 469! WHooHoo!

    Funny I haven't been practicing my doubles at all since I'm playing soft tips but this was just something different to mix it up and BAM! Hit my high Smile

    Feeling good about that.

    That puts you ONE point away from being a Blue Belt! Now you HAVE to keep playing until you improve one of the games - LOL! Laughing

    So what's up with the name change? You're no longer TheCommandant? Razz

    Someday I hope to have the time to get back to these. I can't help but wonder how many of the scores above us are complete BS. Back when I was winning a lot of events and sitting in the ADO Top-25 I still couldn't get above a high-Green Belt... Rolling Eyes

    Oh well. I've always been the weird one who sucks in practice but played better when it counted. Wink

    My 'rank' on the site is the same but I made the change to just Erik some time ago. Wasn't aware that it would change in the rankings and not include my original scores but it's ok. Leaves it like a benchmark.....

    Oh and I just beat my CCU score!

    I often wonder this myself. When I was at the top of my game and competing with all the best in the northwest and took No.1 in points in ADO 1-2 I was tops of the Blue Belts and often beat many who scored higher than me in the rankings but I see that as perhaps the differences between 'practice' and competition.

    Trust me, I understand! But I've been at it a while now and it's coming back Smile and paying off as I foray into the electronic world....

    It's the anomalies Vs the norm. I hit my RTW high about 12 years ago, and haven't come within 15 points of it since. Same with CCU, I've come real close to my high many times but I can't do it consistently.

    Practise Vs competition is also huge. Played in our state tournament last weekend, and if you had seen me practise you might have thought I had a shot at the title. If you had watched my games you might have wondered if I had ever played this damn game before lol.

    Been there done that Kiwi! So many times....and other times my practice wasn't up to par and I won the tournament. It happens.

    Last night my practice really paid off though and I checked out both a 151 and 152 albiet on soft but I hit the DB on the 152 (T20, T14, DB) but since it's 'any' out when I hit the 151 it was B, B, T17....still a nice shot but not like hitting it in Steel!

    Had some nice one dart double finishes though so the Bob's paid off and hit a nice 6mpr in cricket so again, the practice helped.

    Now to see if I can repeat it next week Wink

    Bobs and catch 40 are a big part of my practice, and the pay off is just soo valuable. Those triple double 2 dart out shots are so supremely satisfying, especially when you're opponent is on an out.


    for some reason I struggle with outs on the odd occasion I play soft tip, its not the math, I just forget that the bull is huge lol, even though I've been hitting it all the way down to score, its very strange.

    The best practice for tournaments is match practice, and unfortunately I just don't get it. Playing a blind draw every week (which I have won for the last 12 weeks with multiple different partners, and not played particularly well any week) just isn't gonna get it done.


    Taking out the big outshots always feels great, but I agree there's nothing like doing it in steel.
