Lakeside Semi Finals
It’s the semi finals today – the last four battling it out for a chance to be the BDO Lakeside World Champion.
All four players should be offered a PDC ProTour card, but it is VERY doubtful that they will all take one (and thus leave the BDO due to the politics of the sport). One thing is for sure, Martin Adams will be refusing, and will still be THE Ambassador for the BDO in the coming year. The semi-finalists have also traditionally been offered a place at the Grand Slam of Darts, but I believe that they will not receive that invite if they turn down the Tour card; thus it could be that the BDO no longer are represented at the GSoD in Wolverhampton, a sad state if true.
