The Top Ten

Phil Taylor
Best ever especially when you 8 world titles
In a row, and hits two nine darters in one game, I don, t think no one else would achieve what phils done.
The most dominant darts player for the last decade and a half


What why is Ted Hankey 9th?
Phil Taylor is #1 No brains really, 16th time world champ,
10 time Grand Prix champ and 6 time Premier league champion (i think there
Will be a 7th time).

2Raymond Van Barneveld
No 2. 5 world titles and beaten Taylor more times than anyone
only fourth because four of his world titles came beating second rate bdo players. but proved himself in 2008
The only player from the continent that has been a top player for many years. And still is a to payer.

3Michael van Gerwen
The young talent!
Won the world Grand Prix of 2012 and reached the final of the PDC World Championship 2013.
Almost hit 2 nine darters in a row: he only missed the D12 after 17 perfect darts.
I'm sure we'll see more of him in the future.
19 perfect darts, never performed before this man is already a legend. He now won the Premier league vs Taylor and atm I think he is the no1.
Definitaly one of the best darters, and still so young

4Adrian Lewis
Most naturally gifted darter in the history of the sport!
Won the europese championschip in 2013
"Most intelligent active darter"

5Eric Bristow
5 BDO titles and 10 BDO titles, the epitome of darts in the 1980's


Can't believe Bristow is this low. Five world titles against top players, a man who ruled the sport before his protege, Phil Taylor, overtook him. One of the greats.
I had the pleasure of playing against Eric back in the 1980's when he was undisputed king of all darts. Virtually unbeatable.

6James Wade
2nd most successful PDC darts Ayer ever. Record 3 9 darters in 1 calendar year still unbroken. Not been out of top 10 since he entered almost 10 years ago! Machine like, reliable, no fuss, brave and unwell man and for that I actually rate James in top 3

7John Lowe
3 world champs and 2 world masters, legend


three world titles all won against the best players in the world
Had the pleasure of playing doubles with John in 1985 when he came to Australia. A great player and good bloke.

8Gary Anderson
Great player, high scorer and finisher, great bloke, the best is yet to come for gary

9Dennis Priestley
Dennis the menace has 2 world titles and 4 other final appearances


only won two world titles but would have certainly been more if it wasnt for phil taylor

10John Part
"Darth Maple", the greatest non european dartsman with 3 world titles


won three world titles two of the in the pdc
It takes a lot to cross the pond and play against the worlds best and win. Hats off John Part

The Contenders

11Jocky Wilson
the colourful scot always gave 100 percent should have won more than his two world titles
There has never been a player like Jocky, I'd rate him 3 rd

12Peter Wright
Can't find him in this list don't know where to put him but definitely deserves a place

13Ted Hankey

14Simon Whitlock
Got the most hair and the most intensity
Your the best beat white
Simon is the best, at least top 3 with van gerwen and lewis

15Kim Huybrechts
One for the future, definitely will have a lot of battles between Lewis, van Gerwen, Webster and Wade in the future!
He's on his way becoming a legend
Can beat anyone on his day. Belgium's best player so far. Still very young, World Title is possible for him one day.
