Steve Beaton faces Fallen Cherokee in the first round of the 2021-22 PDC World Darts Championship

Fallen Cherokee’s noises are enough to repel most of his opponents, as they confront not only one of Dart’s rising stars, but also the army of his followers.

But Steve Beaton is not just a dart player. The 57-year-old has been in the sport for a long time and will see it all.

The 1996 world champion, “The Bronze Adonis” is now preparing for his 31st match at the World Championships, a record.

His consistency at this point is not remarkable, make no mistake, he still packs a punch. While Cherokee made history by defeating Ted Evetz and Mensour Suljovic two years ago, Beaton advanced to the 16th round, defeating the late Kyle Anderson and eighth seed James Wade.

The Queen of the Palace is in the news again this year, but for the experienced Englishman it is a challenge.

“Our good friend Eric (Bristow) used to say, ‘You’re playing the game.’ To win, you’ll get in there. ‘ Darts Show Podcast.

“She is very good on stage. At the Grand Slam, her average … the question is how long she will last. Everyone knows that if you are not average in the 90s and 100s these days, you will lose.

As Eric Bristow put it, “You play the game.”

Beaton hopes to block the noise

Despite being a popular figure in the sport, Beaton is likely to take on the role of the pantomime villain of the evening in the eyes of the crowd at Alexandra Palace.

“Sometimes when I was at the Grand Prix in Ireland. Once I’ve played with one of the Irish they will start calling you bad. The crowd wanted him to win! Beaton burst out laughing.

“I had it before. This is only one part of the game, but I do Is power Put on earplugs. I do not know.

However, he sees the return of the crowd over the past year as a welcome development.

“It’s the only reason you play dart to get on a big stage like this.” That’s part of the game, the hair on the back of your neck stands up and you’re under pressure, ”he explained.

“You are in a corner, and you are alone there. That’s the nature of the game .It’s the excitement of the game, that’s why you enjoy it so much.

“Last year was not one of my best, and there were only a handful of spectators at my first round match before the attack. It was awesome, because you could hear all the sounds.

“So I’m holding my fingers, I hope it’s 3,000 or 4,000. You’re got that singing voice, obviously I’ll have a few booze, I guess.” But if there’s a whole crowd there, the atmosphere is great, and that’s what I expect

A mixed year

Beaton has not put up a good performance this year, but he knows that qualifying for the World Championships is not a sneeze.

“The last two years have not been great, but I have done enough to qualify this year,” he said.

“I was watching some unqualified people. I often see John Henderson, he did not qualify. So, even though I’m not had a bright year, I’m thrilled to be back in the world.

“I seem to be doing enough to get past the tournaments. I’m fairly consistent. I think the only problem this year is Kovid and the inability to hold exhibitions. This is a kind of exercise.

“I hope that next year things will return to normal and that the shows can be used as training and return to the circuit by participating in tournaments. This is the path I take. “

Now in his fourth decade competing on top of the darts, Beaton has seen a change in the sport.

“When we played at the embassy [World Championship], We had about 1,200 or 1,300 people. Very compact. That was good, ”he recalls.

“Now you see 3,000 or 4,000 in Ali Pali. With these Premier League, 9,000 or 10,000 people, this is really incredible.

“When Barry (Horn) picked it up, he said he was going to do this and that. And with fair play, it was amazing how he brought the darts inside now. I wish it was in the 1980s. I’m coming to the end now, but still making a living from it, it’s awesome! “

At this point the standards skyrocketed.

“When I play in the world, I have to be in the 90s and 100s [averages] There is an opportunity, ”he said.

“It simply came to our notice then. The averages are incredible.

“Today’s accuracy, especially for young people coming in now, gives them a good chance to do well. It depends on how long they can stay there. But now for a young person I think it’s a great sport to engage in. “
