Mike Warburton has done the double and won both the Irish Open and the High Performance Roofing Open singles titles at the Killarney Darts Festival.
Mike beat Scotland’s Ryan Hogarth 7-6 after a last leg decider. Mike was 5-3 down and could have been more but for a missed double top by Ryan.
Mike got it back to 5-5 again for Ryan to put in a great leg and move to within one leg at 6-5 but Mike showed his resolve and slotted in double 16 for a 6-6. He then won the last leg in style after Ryan hit a 131 to set up 36, but Mike came back for 24 and ended up hitting double 6 for the double win weekend.
Well done Mike Warburton, and indeed as I said yesterday, he is a dark horse for the BDO worlds at the Indigo O2 in January.
