2009 BDO World Darts Championships draw and scores
Now the razzmatazz of the PDC World Championship has ended, the original and some might say best World Championship is underway, the BDO version.
Some may call it real darts, others rubbish, with lower averages but here at William Hill we love our arrers so love both versions equally.
Of course the BDO does not have a dominant force like the PDC does with Phil Taylor. This often means the field is close and no-one can safely say who will win.
Though the BDO does have some top players with Gary Anderson, 2008 World Champion Mark Webster, 2007 World Champion Martin Adams and last year's runner-up Simon Whitlock among the game's finest.
The BDO is renowned for developing the game's talent so the World Championships often witness the emergence of some bright young things either from these shores or more recently from the other side of the North Sea, the Netherlands.
The host for this fine event has been the famous Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green since 1986 and the BBC cameras are once again in force at this Surrey venue.
