Van Barneveld denounces lack of prices despite ‘best darts in career’
Raymond van Barneveld finds it frustrating that he in the last few years and has won awards, while the 49-year-old Hagenaar own words-never better than now.
“As far as averages, I play my best darts ever. But I’d rather have an average of 89, if I do prices suit”, says Van Barneveld Wednesday in conversation with The Guardian.
The last time the world champion from 2007, a major managed to win, was in 2014. Van Barneveld won at the time the Premier League by Michael van Gerwen in the final to defeat.
In five of the last six tournaments on television it was Van Barneveld in the quarter – or semi-finals eliminated by Van Gerwen or the Scot Gary Anderson.

Of Barneveld notice the lack of prices him slowly scarify. “In the last three years I have three times in the semi-final battle achieved at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS. But if you have no trophies up can keep, that hurt. It gets me a little too much.”
“It’s nice to have an average of 109, and to get my doubles to hit”, continues Van Barneveld. “People say that I brilliantly have thrown out and that she has a great evening have had, but I lie awake all night because I lost.”
Van Barneveld takes the Thursday in the third matchday of the Premier League Darts against Phil Taylor. His first match against Adrian Lewis ended in a 7-5 victory, his second round match against Kim Huybrechts in a draw: 6-6. Van Gerwen is playing in Leeds against fellow countryman Jelle Klaasen.
