THE PDC Darts World Championship at Alexandra Palace is nearly among us!
The big tournament will take on its traditional dates from mid-December to early into the new year – though there will be some slightly different start times to accommodate the football World Cup in Qatar.
Michael van Gerwen is the favourite to triumph
Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright prevailed 7-5 over Michael Smith to win the PDC Darts World Championship 2022, picking up the trophy for the second time in his career.
Though the final started in memorable fashion with 28 missed doubles in the opening set, including 21 in the second leg.
It appeared as if Wright was complaining to the referee about a possible breeze affecting the play on stage.
Wright, who had tears in his eyes at the end, showed sympathy for his opponent, saying: “Yes, I did it. Me and Michael didn’t perform how we can. We both played badly.
“It was a strange atmosphere. I kept changing my darts. The atmosphere in here was affecting Michael as well.
“It will be Michael’s time soon. He is the future of darts.”
