    I'm not a grammar Nazi by any means, but you might want to help him with his conjunctions?

    He's saying that he hit 4 20's and had 185 so another single 20 would leave a bogey on 165, whereas a single 18 would leave 167. So he started with 265.

    Gordon,
    Having done battle with you before, I know you meant well. Some players will welcome the advice, whether it comes from you, or Joe Schmoe. Others will take it as you being cocky, and full of yourself. I too try to help players out, but I will ask if they mind me sharing something with them, that was once told to me. This way it puts you both on the same level. If they say sure, then share with them your advice, if they decline the offer, it's their loss, not yours. At least this way, they can't call you a jerk, or make you feel like one.

    This topic just came up for me this past weekend. I had just beaten a guy 3-0 (after chalking his previous match) and he made some questionable choices during the two matches. So knowing that I just skunked him and he might not want to hear anything from me, I asked if I could talk to him about his outs. Fortunately he was receptive, and we had a good talk. If he hadn't been, then that would have been it.

    This player has a really, really good stroke but his strategy was getting him into trouble. He kept shooting for DB with 2 darts in hand even though his opponent wasn't anywhere near an out, and when he had 61 (2 darts) with me sitting on a 1-dart out he tried for the T15. So I explained the benefits of the other options - but next time I play him I know I'm going to have to raise my game because he won't make the same mistakes again.

    I too never give advice unless it is asked for. Probably over here in England where there are a lot of matches played in venues where the alcohol flows it could cause trouble if someone got offended by a remark no matter how well it was meant.
    If someone has beaten you why would they want advice telling them that you should have took advantage of them going for the wrong shot? Also if you had beaten them, they are probably not going to here advice no matter how it is presented.
    Me? I simply shake hands and then rejoin my team. Later on at the bar if I have a drink with my opponent and he asks advice ok, but normally it ends up aong the lines of us both saying how the match could have gone either way
