Beaton’s Blog from the BETFAIR Matchplay
I enjoyed my time in the Betfair World Matchplay in Blackpool and was really happy with my performance throughout.
After beating Kevin Painter in a very tough first round match 10 – 6 with a 95.57 average, I was set for my second round match against Mighty Mike.
I was up for the game and playing some brilliant darts, scoring heavily, but needed to take out a few more high finishes.
Michael Van Gerwen however did hit 6 x 100 plus shots out and also a sensational nine darter on the way to beating me 13 – 9.
Fair play, Michael was in awesome form, Congratulations and good luck to the youngster.
Michael’s average 104.36 - Steve’s 100.88
Normally you would win the game with a 100 plus average.
Definitely looking forward to the rest of the darting year and taking my recent form forward.
My next aim is to qualify for the World Grand Prix in Ireland.
