You can't beat a bit of Bully! Attendees at last night's Professional Adviser Awards were invited to take part in a mini darts tournament, with the winner promised his score in cash. But who won?
We calculated that more than 100 people took part in the Legg Mason-sponsored event - with mixed results (see below).
Participants were handed six darts. Our unique tournament format permitted throwers to take back their first dart if they were unhappy with it. Most did - having missed the board entirely!
So, who won? Below we list some of the night's best scores (and throwers), plus some of the worst. The winning individual, and his score, is named at the bottom.
Before casting your eyes over these scores, remember: six darts means a maximum score of 360. Enjoy, and thank you to all of those who took part. We'll see you next year.
