Basic rules of darts
Darts is always played one-on-one, that is, in the format of a regular individual sport match. Before the start of the fight, each of the athletes is given either 301 or 501 points, depending on the tournament. Then they stand at a distance of 2.37 meters from the target and throw three darts. From the starting sum of points, the number of points for these three hits is removed.
The player's task is to be the first to reset the starting points. Moreover, it is necessary to get zero, and not go to minus. If you get more points than you need, this roll does not count.
The dart board has 20 sectors, two doubling and tripling rings, as well as a bullseye (25 points) and a center bullseye (50 points). At the same time, the maximum number of points, equal to 180, can be scored by a player by hitting the triple points ring for the 20th sector three times. It turns out that the total amount of 501 points can be scored in just 3 approaches.
By resetting the starting points balance, the athlete wins the leg. Moreover, to win in the leg with the last dart, you must definitely hit the doubling sector.
