HMKL International Darts Challenge 2011

HMKL 2011 darts Challenge was the best so far for the Capitan. Capitan was picked to join the first timers together team that combined Masrul from Sepang Darters, Iwan from the then D'Taza Darters, Bro Azli @ Bek from Dury MBSA, Zaidi and Ahyarrudin from CIMB Bank. At first, we do not know what name to be given to this team and at the very last minutes, Dury 7 was used in view of there were other two Dury teams that took part in the same tourney.

Dury 7 only trained once at the Summit's Century Club where three members turned up and pair each other plus other team darters that night. Actually, Proton Lekior team members were present that night where they played their single league.

50 teams took parts in the HMKL 2011 where we seen Philipino, Brunei, Spore and other locals team participated. Dury 7 was scheduled against ADAM Melaka and Fantasy Darters. Unfortunately, in view of lacking preparation and been playing for each other for the first time, we lose the both bouts. We were then drawn into the 2nd Chance Pool the very next day.

We met Locos Ladies in the 1st match and we had no difficulties in defeating them though quite scary though with the 1st Single event where Ina took 180 and marginally beaten by Masrul. I did not have to play in the double event in view of Dury 7 had secured enough points to beat the Locos Ladies. The next bout was against Fantasy Blue Darters. We did exceptionally well by defeated them again to enter the semi final where the opponents are the BSRC Brunei darters where Penggiran Mohd is one of the team members. Again, we did our very best to defeat the Brunei team and went on to the Final to meet Team Proton Lekior.

Luck was on our side again where good darts and God's willing, we were crowned 2nd Chance Pool Champion for 2011. RM1500 was the price money and we divided among ourselves satisfactorily. Unfortunately, Ahyarrudin was not there for the last two days due to various reasons but i dont know what went wrong to his darts skill on the 1st day where the scores were low and he seem lost somewhere. Thus, the four of us had to fight our very best to emerge Champion for the 2nd Chance Pool.

Super G of the Phillippines took the Team event title on that night where they defeated Malury Blue Hades (ada import players from Thailand)

On Sunday, we entered the Single event where Masrul took one of the Kitchen Darters guy, I took Faizal of D'Mak Team and Bro Bek took one of the other darters there. We did not have luck in the Single event where i and Masrul lose in the 1st round but Bro Bek kandas in the 2nd round.

Well, thats about it on the local darts scene for now. Njoyyyyyy!!!

Inter Bank Darts Tourney 2011

I came back from Europe just in nick of time to enter the Inter Bank Darts Tourney 2011. I had two days training at Amin Alley Darts Studio as this is our training camp for CIMB. The tourney started on Friday 17th June 2011 @ Bank Rakyat. We started well by defeated HSBC B by a very big margin. Then we were unluckily been defeated by Bank Rakyat by just a slight margin though Capitan won his bout. Later that day, Single event took place. Capitan was drawn against Jai of HSBC. Again Capitan defeated Jai by 2-0. Capitan went on to defeat Halim of Bank Rakyat by 2-1 and in the cQuarter Final, Capitan met Stephen of RHB. Capitan managed well in the 1st leg but due to slightly poor form in the 2nd and final leg, Capitan had to bow down to him 1-2. Whatever it was, a very good display by Capitan where the other two single participants from CIMB did not even make it to the 2nd round.

The very next day, CIMB met SCB where we again won the match with a slight margin. Unfortunately, Capitan lose the match against Akram. The next match, CIMB met The Tiger and we did a very good job by defeated them with a big margin too. CIMB was top of the A Group. In the semi, we met AMBANK where due to poor form, we were easily been defeated by them. Capitan also lose his bout by 1-2 against Bro Hj.

On Sunday, we met again SCB to decide for the 3rd and 4th place. We lose the 4some but then Capitan took 2-0 win against Akram to avenge the yesterday's defeat and my the rest of my bteam members did a very good job to ensure CIMB captured 3rd place in the 2011 Inter Bank Darts Tourney. RHB won the tourney by defeated AMBANK.

Overall, Capitan satisfied with the winning despite two days training before the tourney. Bravo to team CIMB. We will try again next year to be the BEST!!!
