As the pressure hots up to be involved in the Remote Darts League play-offs, John O’Shea has seemingly rose to it as he put himself top of the table for the time being after Night 14.

An important night overall also for Tony O’Shea and Larry Butler, but the reigning World Master stole the spoils claiming three victories to earn vital points.

He defeated Tony O’Shea (6-1), Larry Butler (6-4) and Laura Turner (6-0). For the former two, they also played out a draw, so dropped out of the top four for the time being.

‘The Joker’ is only on top for the time being due to him playing more games but has put himself up there currently with 17 points and is ahead of the top four by a solitary point while Butler and O’Shea are down in seventh and eighth.

In the first phase of the Remote Darts League which sees twenty evenings, all participants play against each other once. Four players are involved per night, with each player completing three matches. Matches are best of 10 legs, so a 5-5 draw is possible.

After twenty days of action, the top four in the league will advance to the playoffs, which are scheduled for Monday, June 8.

All matches can be viewed via this link . The broadcast starts daily at 9pm BST.
