”I had no idea! When I got beat I thought I was out. Just before I went on someone said ‘You might be in”
ADAM HUNT admits he thought he was OUT before snatching a last-gasp PDC Tour Card.
The 30-year-old star lost 6-5 to Joshua Richardson on the last day of Qualifying School in Milton Keynes on Sunday.
‘The Hunter’ didn’t think he had gained enough points on the leaderboard but in fact he had snatched tenth place by virtue of one more leg won than Darren Webster.
He admitted: “I had no idea! When I got beat I thought I was out. Just before I went on someone said ‘You might be in’.
“Then I’m thinking a thousand things through the game. My brain was mushed for the whole game there.”
Hunt has shown a huge amount of promise over the years and reached the last sixteen on the Grand Slam of Darts in 2020 and qualified for the World Championship on three occasions.
He added: “This is the most intense part of darts you’ll ever get. I would like to see a lot of the top pros have a go at this because it is really tough.
“It plays with your mind, there’s a lot of things going on with the permutations and things. It’s so tough but I’m just glad I got through.”
