Van Peer checks out 110 in ‘ridiculous’ way with Grand Slam commentators stunned
Darts star Berry van Peer left darts fans shocked and the Sky Sports commentators speechless as he checked out in a unique way on 110.
The Dutchman tied his Grand Slam of Darts clash with Chris Dobey at 3-3 when he stepped up to the oche needing 110 to check out. And rather than trying a regular check-out, Van Peer was forced to call an audible when his darts missed its intended target.
Van Peer nailed a treble 19, before he hit a treble 17 – causing the Dutchman to recoil and evaluate his next move. "I think he wanted treble 15," said the commentator as Van Peer lined up and hit double 1 to check out: "Well that is one way to take out 110, you won't see that very often!"

"Hahaha that is ridiculous from Van Peer," one fan joked. However, others weren't fans of the pace that Van Peer played – with some pointing out it was boring.
And opponent Dobey, who eventually prevailed 5-4, agreed with the fans: "I struggled with that pace, I was nearly asleep at the end of that game!"

Despite losing both of his opening games, it has been an emotional weekend for Van Peer who is returning to the Grand Slam of Darts for the first time since his dartitis attack six years ago.
Referee Russ Bray told Daily Star Sport earlier this week: "Gary [Anderson] ended up beating him and the poor kid was in tears, he was actually crying.
“When he came to shake my hand [at the end of the match], I just grabbed hold of him and said, ‘Forget about the crowd, don’t worry about that, you are a good dart player’."
