For those who like darts Gary Anderson is a legend, and now he managed to make his fans happy by defeating Australian Corey Cadby 11-7 in the final which took place in Minehead.

A Few Information About Gary Anderson

Gary Anderson won the world title twice, in 2015 and 2016 and his great darts skills brought him the nickname “Flying Scotsman.”    

Gary Anderson Darts Performances Over Years

Gary Anderson is a really good darts player and he played many finals in different competitions, including the final of the Coral UK Open in 2010. He won his last trophy in 2016 when he became world champion for the second time and his fans were definitely impatient for their idol to win another cup. Even though he had a rough year, as he suffered an injury, Gary Anderson managed to motivate himself and win this year’s edition of the Coral UK Open. Those who are into darts betting might have won big amounts of money if they wagered on Gary’s victory, as he wasn’t the favorite in this match.

An Unusual Weekend For A Darts Competition

When it comes to darts Gary Anderson is ready to risk everything and this weekend he actually risked his life, as the Storm Emma caused lots of trouble in the city. The storm was also the reason why the final round took place without spectators, as they were advised to not leave their homes during the weekend.

The Road To The Big Prize

Before he won the trophy, Gary Anderson had to defeat some really good players but the last ones were really hard to defeat. Here are his last results:

       10-5 against World Champion Rob Cross in the quarter-finals

       11-7 in the semi-finals against David Pallet

After defeating these players, the “Flying Scotsman” had a tough match against Corey Cadby, a surprising 23-year-old darts player who is already really popular thanks to his great results. After winning this UK Open, Gary Anderson picked up £70.000, while his opponent put £35.000 in his pocket as a runner-up. The champion admitted the last three matches were difficult and he claimed luck helped him defeat his opponents, although we all know his skills were more important than faith.

Even though he was a bit disappointed for losing the competition, Cadby admitted he’s got a lot to learn and that he is happy he was able to make it to the final. He’s 24 years younger than Gary Anderson, so we can agree that the experience made the difference in this case.
