Statistics show switching more prevalent than ever in comparison of 1983 BDO and 2021 PDC World Darts Championship
Darts statistician Christopher Kempf investigated the most frequently thrown scores between the 1983 BDO and 2021 PDC World Darts Championship.
Besides the standard increasing, another interesting aspect emerged with players switching now more than ever.

Scores like 137, 99, 97, 96 and 93 have also gained a lot more popularity in a players mindset with for example in 1983, only 0.14% of the scores accounting for 93 points compared to 1.18% this past year.
