Kwanghee Cho from South Korea wins WDDA Winmau World Championship

Friday started the Dutch Open 2020 in de Bonte Wever in Assen. The men and ladies played pairs upto the final, which will be played on Sunday. Besides the WDDA Winmau World Championship took place.

Kwanghee Cho, who was already regarded as one of the favourites by Merel, an expert on Asian darts, went on to claim the WDDA Winmau World Championship. Cho had beaten Bernard Martens, who replaced fellow Belgian Vincent d’Hondt who had to withdraw because of personal reason, Paul Hampton, Peter Bramley (after Cho had been 2-0 down), and Jonathan Hirst on his way to the final. Cho missed the bull’s eye for a 170-checkout to claim the title with a 3-0 win against Mike Callaghan. In the end Cho won this match 3-1.

I myself was surprised by French Frederic Simon, who made it to the quarter finals which he only lost 3-2 against Mike Callaghan. While I expected more of the Belgians, but Serge van Belle, Jackie Goethals, Bernard Martens and Luc de Baere all lost their first round matches.

I'm a huge dartsfan and started, because in my opinion darts media are focusing to much on the highlights and well known players and countries of the darting world. Therefore I want to pay more attention to the dart players and countries throughout Europe.
