Van Duijvenbode thrives on darting pressure: "If there's no pressure, the game isn't important"

Dirk van Duijvenbode took part in a new series from the PDC where he answered 20 questions about life and his career.

Van Duijvenbode in the second part discussed what he likes to do away from the oche and how he likes to unwind also when he is away from his day job at the Aubergine farm.

"PlayStation, I love to barbecue as well make some nice piece of meat for 10 hours on the barbecue. I play Call of Duty only, I'm okay but I'm not a good gamer," he said to the PDC.

Best and dream venue

He was also asked about his dream darting venue and his favourite one he's played in so far with a home European Tour one taking the latter as well as one known for its sea of orange in the Premier League.

"I think it's Venray in Holland, I liked it a lot. My biggest dream is to play over there (the Ahoy) so hopefully I'll make it one day."

Playing individual or team

For 'The Titan', he has now not only played individual but also as a team with Michael van Gerwen at the World Cup of Darts and he discussed the extra pressures.

"Depends how you go along together, as a team can relieve your pressures but it can also put pressure on. If you expect too much of each other, it can bring extra pressure."

"It is pressure because you know if you lose, it's your fault."

As well as thriving on the pressure and how as a player he doesn't get others who collapse when put under it.

"I love it. It's what you do it for. Some people they collapse under pressure and I just think you wanted to be here now comes pressure with it, just enjoy it. If there's no pressure, the game isn't important."
