Keith Deller 138 Flights – 75 micron
Keith Deller’s victory over Eric Bristow in the 1983 BDO World Darts Championship by 6 sets to 5 was probably the biggest upset in the history of the championship. He also beat world number 3 John Lowe in the quarter-finals and defending champion and world number 2 Jocky Wilson in the semi-final to become the only player in history to defeat the world’s top three ranked players in the World Championship. The champion’s prize money in 1983 was £8,000.
His checkout of 138 to clinch the trophy is amongst the most memorable in darting history. Bristow had left himself 50 to stay in the match, but decided to throw for single 18 with his last dart to leave double 16 instead of a more difficult attempt at the bullseye. Deller then hit treble 20, treble 18, double 12 for the title, and even to this day commentators often refer to 138 as the “Deller checkout” if a player is left with that score.
