Will he move to the big time?

No, he said if he made the Semis hes staying put for life.

He should do. He was unplayable there for 4 sets. He said if he lost today he would switch but if he won he'd stay with the BRO forever.

BDO is not a patch on the PDC. I can't see him doing well in the PDC.

Bunting was the last big BDO star to head to the PDC and he's been very average.

He will switch.

When I was a league player in Middlesbrough (about a century ago) 180s, and 130s on a double board came fairly often, because there were leagues most nights of the week.

 The odd 3 bulls came , but Duzza is something different.  He's a great player at the top level.
He can win this again this year.

BDO rules are if you get to the Semi's and then leave to the PDC you have to hand any prize money back. Thats why he was going to PDC if he lost the quarters or staying BDO if he got further.

He's committed to the BDO for life though. Doesn't really make sense if he wants to progress his career. Fair enough if he's happy to just turn up at Lakeside once a year, beat some glorified county players barely better than the women and pick up a cheque, but he's probably the best BDO player since Barney for me and could really make a success in the PDC if he wanted to.


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: BoroPE on January 14, 2018, 11:14:36 AM
He may regret it in a few years when he looks back on his career but 100k is a lot to hand back.


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: Bullet Tooth Tony on January 14, 2018, 02:26:29 PM
100k is when he'd struggle to win trophies in the world of the PDC. The likes of MVG, Lewis, Anderson, Wright, Barney are a different kettle of fish to those in the BDO but I think at this moment Glen is head a shoulders above his fellow BDO competitors.

This years winnings table sits like this......
1   Michael van Gerwen   Netherlands   2,708,468
2   Peter Wright   Scotland   1,085,627
3   Phil Taylor   England   956,378

5   Rob Cross   England   638,600
6   Dave Chisnall   England   536,878
7   Raymond van Barneveld   Netherlands   521,966
8   Mensur Suljovic   Austria   509,000
9   James Wade   England   503,466
10   Daryl Gurney   Northern Ireland   476,250
11   Adrian Lewis   England   451,824

42   Jermaine Wattimena   Netherlands   104,250
43   Terry Jenkins   England   103,500
44   Robbie Green   England   92,250
45   Max Hopp   Germany   89,996
46   James Richardson   England   86,950
47   Jan Dekker   Netherlands   83,250
48   Josh Payne   England   79,250
49   Jamie Caven   England   78,750
50   Krzysztof Ratajski   Poland   75,099


This is the prize table for the BDO World Championship

Winner 100,000
Runner-up 35,000
Semi-finalists 15,000
Quarter-finalists 6,500
Last 16 4,500
Last 32 3,250
Last 40 2,000

Rob Cross who won the PDC World's won 400,000, and he's only been a professional since the beginning of 2017.

Glen for me, really needs to step up and get in the big league.

Bunting brought in 200k for the year?

Durrant could certainly look to emulate that.

Durrant is by far a better darts player than Bunting but the PDC isn't easy. 200k isn't really worth winning for getting knocked out of competitions in the very early stages, compared to winning trophies.

If he was money motivated, join the PDC and get knocked out of competitions early and collect the coin, but if he's motivated to win trophies, then stay where he is and pick up less coin but get in to finals every year.



Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: SmogOnTour on January 14, 2018, 05:28:20 PM
I don't think anyone is suggesting he wouldn't have to up his game if he made the switch, performing on the longer format might need a bit more attention, but he conducted himself well at the Grand Slam last year, taking matches off PDC players and averaging over well over 100 on a few occasions.

 Only turned it on at 6-6....intense finish that like  :mido:


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: Robbso on January 14, 2018, 09:06:58 PM
He played very well to get it to 6-4 then couldn't hit a double, the 149 finish was the defining moment for him, He had put his darts away when the other lad threw for double 18.


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: Bud Wiser on January 14, 2018, 09:09:33 PM
I think I'd have got more satisfaction if he'd gone into the crowd and levelled the dickhead who booed him in the penultimate leg than see him actually win it.


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: tunstall on January 15, 2018, 08:13:41 AM
thing is, if he DOES make the switch his game will get better due to being able to concentrate on his game more

was a great game last night - at one point he literally couldn't hit a double


Title: Re: Durrant

There was a lack of quality in the second half of that final, didnt see the first, despite the drama


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: LEON TROTSKY on January 15, 2018, 09:57:41 AM
HE GOT A GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD LAST NIGHT.....HE WAS MISSING DOUBLES FOR FUN AND THE GLADIATOR BOTTLED DOUBLE 18 AND DOUBLE 9 TO WIN THE GAME......DUZZAS 149 CHECK OUT WAS THE TURNING POINT IN THE GAME  :jc:

HE WONT MOVE UP AS IT MEANS HE WILL HAVE TO WRAP HIS COUNCIL JOB IN...AND HE WONT DO IT....HE WILL STAY AS HE IS..... :like:

THE GLADIATOR WAS GRACIOUS IN DEFEAT TOO  :like:

HATS OFF TO HIM FOR MAKING IT A GREAT FINAL  :homer:


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: #Pulisout on January 15, 2018, 10:51:05 AM
he could dominate the BDO for years still another 100k in the pocket.

with the PDC he'd be travelling around europe all year trying to get wins in the ranking events all out of his own pocket or relying on sponsors


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: Cecil_J_McTumshie on January 15, 2018, 01:08:22 PM
wouldn't think the BDO could claim the money back if he moved to the PDC to better his career-his lawyer would surely argue restraint of trade or similar legal jargon

You would have thought Eddie Hearn would stage a unity knockout of both organisations.


Not for his own benefit, but on pay per view just in case.


Title: Re: Durrant
Post by: BoroPE on January 17, 2018, 06:02:47 PM
Said on BBC Tees last night he would have to hand 100 k back if he went to PDC qualifying school this week. Would be up against 500 other players for 20 spots too. Not worth the risk.

How many of those 500 are a double BDO WC? If it's about money, then so be it, but it lacks ambition imo.
