What is the Equaliser?

The Equaliser is a powerful league format comprising of two ‘phases’. It is made possible by the GDL’s famous stats system.

Phase 1

In Phase 1, players have been allocated to a division and pool based on GDL 3 dart average and some magic fairy dust. Players in each pool play each other once. (5 or 6 matches, depending on numbers in the pool).

At the end of phase 1, players in all pools in the same division are then ranked by points gained and then leg difference.

Phase 2 - The Equaliser

In the Equaliser phase, the top third of players from all pools in the division are placed into a new league table, called Group 1. The second third-best performers are placed in Group 2, and then the remaining players into Group 3.

Ranking points are given after the final positions in phase 2 are known, with the highest points going to Group 1, followed by 2, then 3.

1st and 2nd position in Group 1 at the end of the season will win £40 and £20 worth of GDL vouchers respectively. Group 2 and 3 winners will get a £10 voucher each.

There are also ranking points available for completing the league season. Click here for more info.
