Since the aim of this website is to inform you as good as possible about what happens in Europe I’ve decided to write each week an article about what happened in Europe in the respective week.
It was a busy weekend in Europe with the national championships of Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia taking place. Besides the finals night of the Icelandic Premier League took place as well during last week.
Zoran Lerchbacher, who will try to win a PDC tour card at Q-School coming week became Austrian champion steeltip beating Christian Kallinger in the final. Hannes Schnier and Ingo Nachbaur lost the semi finals. The Hypercane was also the best player in the mens softtip event with Alex Steinbauer being the number two, Hannes Schnier being joint fifth and Dietmar Burger ended joint ninth.
Christina Köstner became the ladies steeltip champion after beating Daniela Neumayer in the final. The semi finalists were Melanie Mähr and Sabine Sarrer.
For all results I would refer to the website of the Austrian Dartsport Organisation.
In the mens event Karel Sedlacek, for many people probably the main favourite, lost in the last 16 4-1 against Daniel Barborak, his pairs mate. Barborak became the runner-up after he lost the final 2-1 in sets against Vitezslav Sedlak. Jitka Cisarova took the ladies title after she won 5-3 against Jana Kanovska.
Karel Sedlacek and Daniel Barborak threw a 9-dart leg at the Czech Cup pairs. Sedlacek is of course known for his appearances at the BDO World Championship 2015, PDC World Championship 2019 and several PDC European tours in 2019. As far as I know this is the fourth time a 9-dart leg was hit in a pairs match. Danish Jann Hofman and Troels Rusel had a 9 darter in 1991, thanks to Roger Boyesen for making me aware of this. Glen Durrant and Claire Stansby did so in the British International Open mix pairs 2013 and Neil Duff and Steve Ritchie at the Welsh Open pairs 2017 did so before. Thanks to Wolfgang Amadeus Modart for sharing this. Karel Sedlacek and Daniel Barborak won the pairs event after they had beaten Michal Ondo and Michal Smejda 4-0 in the final.
