1985 BDO World Darts Championship

1985 BDO World Darts Championship

The 1985 Embassy World Darts Championship was the 8th World Professional Championships. The tournament was held between January 5 and 12 January. It was the last time the tournament was held at Jollees Cabaret Club in Stoke on Trent as the venue would close for good after the championship. The tournament organisers, the British Darts Organisation decided to move the event to the Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green, Surrey from 1986.

Eric Bristow won his 4th World Title, extending his own record for victories. It was also his second successive win. John Lowe suffered defeat in the final for the fourth time, failing to add to his only previous title - won in 1979.

Keith Deller, champion two years previously, set a new record for becoming the first player to average over 100 with his 3 darts during a match at the World Championship. His average of 100.29 was not enough to win his quarter-final against John Lowe who averaged 97.83.

Bristow almost matched this record in his semi-final victory over Dave Whitcombe. Bristow fell just short of the magic ton, with an average of 99.66.
