Left handed but not left out? The full list now includes 2 left handed players, James “the Gladiator” “009” Wade & Alan “the Saint” Tabern, who are new to the game – so no need to feel others have the unfair advantage!
Each Pro has their own set of influences on their play, including stamina, belief, ability to cope with pressure, concentration, accuracy and of course their favourite check out bed. Will it be double tops, or downstairs to “the basement” for double 3?

Immerse yourself in the experience: You’ll be able to match or beat their stamina, anticipate their strategies, hit the doubles and the triples, then go in for the kill and check out when they’re close to the wire! With “player cam” zoom-ins and Wii Remote™ vibration feedback for those all important 180s & check outs, you’ll be feeling the oche heartbeat.
With over 4,000 lines of commentary using TV’s voice of darts, Sid Waddell and raspy voiced scorer Russ Bray, PDC World Championship Darts 2009 on Wii™ will prove to be a double top darts experience.
