So my next BDO ranking event for Lakeside 2014 was the 3rd of the BDO majors called the Zuiderduin Masters. This is an event which see's six of the best lady players in the world in two groups of three players. In my group was Deta Hedman, Sharon Prins and myself. In the other group was Irina Armstrong, Lorraine Farlam and Aileen De Graff.
My forn coming into the tournament had been good and I had been practicing hard since the last tournament in Jersey. The weekend before this tournament I hit a 31.98 ave in county to give me the highest average in the country over that weekend. http://www.bdodarts.com/biccmonthlyawards.aspx
I played well in my first group game beating Sharon 4-1in legs meaning that I needed to win my next game against Deta to get myself into the final. I was playing well and defeated Deta 4-1 in legs to then play Aileen De Graaf in the final who had won through from her group. I continued my good form in the final and ran out winner by 2 sets to 1 and taking the crown of Zuiderduin Masters champion. This meant i currently held 2 of the 3 BDO major titles in the year 2013. This was a great way to end the year and a real confidence boost for Lakeside in January. I hope that by winning this tittle I will be invited back next year to defend my title as this would mean a lot to be able to defend this title.
Well its been an up and down year for me in terms of form in 2012. It started well with a Lakeside win and it finished well with a Zuiderduin Masters win. I am currently sat in 10th position in the World ranking heading into Lakeside, but it is only very early in the seasonand I will be hoping to improve on this position at Lakeside. http://www.bdodarts.com/tables.aspx?tid=8
