With no darts currently taking place due to Coronavirus, the PDC hosted their first Darts at Home tournament last night with Devon Petersen the victor.

Many players have been facing off on the n01 online system and Dart Connect for fun in recent weeks and the PDC decided to get in on the act with a live stream tournament of their own.

Dan Dawson who commentates on the ProTour events was also on hand for the stream which as well as Petersen saw Ted Evetts, Chris Dobey, Luke Humphries and Matthew Edgar involved.

The former took the win though edging past Chris Dobey on leg difference after winning three out of his four matches.

It was a good night for Petersen with wins over Chris Dobey (4-1), Ted Evetts (4-2) and Matthew Edgar (4-2).

His only defeat came to Luke Humphries who won 4-2 with an excellent 109 average en route.

A new idea that went well during these times of uncertainty and one that with even bigger players could mean further possibilities in the coming weeks and months ahead.
