WDF World Cup Men Pairs 1993

The ninth WDF World Cup is played for the second time in the largest gambling city of the world; Las Vegas. In 1979 WDF World Cup II was also held there, back then with only men's teams. Just like two years ago in Zandvoort Netherlands, there were 32 countries in the men’s competition. In the ladies, 26 countries started for their sixth WDF World Cup Darts.

Traditionally, there are relatively many Caribbean countries when playing in North America. There are also three debuting countries; The Czech Republic, Hungary and South Africa have joined the WDF World Cup family. The Sahara Hotel is the place to be from 13 to 16 October, just like 14 years ago. That does not apply to a lot of trusted names. This WDF World Cup goes down in history as the first after the split, with a large number of top players having set up their own darts association, later known as the PDC.

In the pairs tournament, the English pairs Dave Askew & Kevin Kenny and Ronnie Baxter & Steve Beaton were eliminated early and we do not find any British pair in the semi-finals. Scotland’s Trevor Nurse & Mike Veitch lose 2-4 in the quarterfinals to the Danes Per Skau & Troels Rusel. The other Scottish pair Alan Brown & Ronnie Sharp lose 3-4 in the same round to Australian duo Russell Stewart & Wayne Weening. Eric Burden & Martin Phillips from Wales also lose their quarterfinals with 3-4 against John Part & Carl Mercer from Canada. Raymond van Barneveld & Roland Scholten from the Netherlands complete the last four. They beat Marko Kantele & Mauri Hakkala from Finland 4-0.

In the first semi-final the Dutch pair Raymond van Barneveld & Roland Scholten beat Per Skau & Troels Rusel from Denmark 4-2. The Canadians win the other semi-final quite easily 4-1 over the men from Down Under. and with that Weening is dethroned as champion.

In the final the Dutch pair had a lot of trouble with finding the doubles, Carl Mercer and John Part took advantage and won the first three legs in 13, 23 and 15 darts. The fourth leg went to the Dutch duo in 20 darts. In the fifth leg John Part clinched the match with a 76 finish in 15 darts. This marked the first WDF World Cup Pairs title in the history for Canada. The Netherlands had never won a medal before 1993.
