Darts Checkout Chart

There are many ways to finish a game, and here is just one. Players have their preferred combination shots, and these may vary depending on their opponent's score. If their opponent is on an outshot, even if it is a high three dart combination, most players will try to finish the game rather than set up a preferred double. As an old saying goes, never give a darter a chance to finish, do so at your peril as Eric Bristow found out in the last leg of the 1983 World Darts Championship.

As Bobby George says “trebles for show and doubles for dough!” Finishing games is what it all about! It’s great when you can score high, but if you can’t finish, you are not going to win!

Many people, when first starting to play, find it challenging to remember combination checkouts. Some combinations are better than others purely because if you miss the first shot, you may still be in line for a comfortable single then double to finish.

Example: 77 can be finished by hitting treble 15, double 16, one of the nicest doubles on the board. But what if you hit a single 15? This leaves you with 62, - Single 12 Bull? , Treble 10 double 16? Both are not easy to hit. But what if you decided to go for 77 a different way? Treble 19, double 10? And you missed treble 19 but hit the single? Then this still leaves you a shot at single 18 then double 20. This seems a better route, and there are many shots similar to this. There are also several ways to finish and above is only one way, but not necessarily the best when you have three darts for a two dart finish.

The Checkout sheets I have produced will help new players and players that find it hard to remember out shots. The checkout sheet is FREE to download and use for personal use. So why not place one up near your board or club, so it helps you or others improve their game!

In the mobile version, I have included a UK PDF Checkout Chart, which you can download using the button below. However, I have also translated the checkout and a total of 48 variations are now available on the main website. You can also use the in-app leg scorer designed to prompt you with three darts and two darts outshouts. See below.
