9 Dart Finish Videos

The term "9 dart finish" or "9 dart checkout" came from the fact that it takes 9 ultimate throws from any dart player in the darts game 501 to reach zero by ending the game with a double.

A typical example of a perfect 501 game for a specific player would be to throw:

1. 3 x darts hits the treble 20(60) = 180 Score. This leaves the player with 321 score. Next round he throws another

2. 3 x darts hits the treble 20(60) = 180 Score. This leaves the player with 141 score. The player now needs to finish with the last 3 darts . He then throws:

3. 1 x dart hits the treble 20(60), 1 x dart hits the treble 15(45), 1 x dart hits the double 18(36). Total score = 141

The total score of the nine darts then accumulated is as follows:

180 score (1st 3 darts) + 180 score (2nd 3 darts) +141 score(last 3 darts) = 501

  Ps!   Another way to get a score of 141 would be like John Lowe did it in the first 9 Dart Finish ever televised by throwing

    1 x dart in the Treble 17(51)   1 x dart in the Treble 18(54)  and 1 x dart in the Double 18(36)

     51 + 54 + 36 = 141

Very few people get to see this live in their life times. Well, you can now watch it on video, over and over again. This is darts brilliancy at it’s best. ENJOY!
