Keith deller:underated?
Hi guys

Ive been watching some of Deller stuff recently & I know he's lives off that 138 but what  run he had

Qualified for wc, beats seeds 1-2-3 all former or current world champions - something never done before or since in 40+ years. And let's be honest 3 of the greatest ever in Bristow, Lowe mad wilson 

Gets the first 100 average on tv

Still a pdc Pro 24 years later and still capable of getting good results against the best

I know he didn't win another major but all en all a terrific career. 

We kinda call h a one hit wonder but what a hit, likely never to be repeated!
Darts: 21g Unicorn Taylor. Phase 1 cop
Stems: unicorn short
Flights: std 75mc
Board: Winmau Blade 5. 

Best 100 at 20 score: 115 (17/10/18)
Current ave: 95

Sometimes that one hit can be a big one !!!
If you know what I'm doing, don't tell me ..... I find bliss in my confusion.   

Voted No

His WC win was the stuff of legend but apart from that he didn't really do much else (by elite player standards)

Darts: Harrows Glen Durrant Duzza Series 2 24g, short Harrows Supergrip shafts, Harrows flights (Marathon/Retina/Optix/Rapide) 

Best 501: 13 darts (League), 14 darts (Pro Darter)

Best Checkout: 154 (League), 160 (Pro Darter)
I voted no for the same reason as Banz - he was good for a while around 1983/4 but didn't really set the world alight too much after that.

Also, moved to the players of the past room as it's not really PDC news.

This pretty much sums Deller up, 83 was his peak in darts.
Hard to cast a vote, seems I was three years old at his peak Smile
B: 25g   S: Short   F: Shape   180s: 7/25
Well, he did win the British Professional in 1987 four years after he won the world title, which was a BDO major. Still I'd have to vote 'no' since he didn't really make an impact on the world of darts apart from his run at the '83 world championship. He's a great player that pacticipated for a long time, but I he has had the respect he deserved, which is enough.
