How much do you practice?
I practice two to three hours a day.
Do you practice with a partner?
No, most of the time I practice on my own.
Do you still play darts for enjoyment?
No - it's really like a job now-a-days - it's my profession.
Do you play league?
Yes, exhibitions still go on. I had a lot of fun in those times together with Trina Gulliver and Martin Fitzmaurice. I still can get exhibitions - might be not as much because of the financial crisis. Not at all in Holland. More around where I live and in Ireland. In Ireland there really is a lot of interest.
Do you think fitness is important?
Very important. I go to the gym several times a week.
One hears a lot about top players changing their darts. Did you ever change?
Never till now. I for thirteen years now play the same darts. I play with all Unicorn equipment.
Do you like the stage?
I like it very much to play on stage. Much more then playing floor tournaments. It's totally different up there. I feel much better and I think that shows.
Do you hear much of the crowd?
No. I wouldn't say so. I really can block that out.
What do you think makes a winner?
I think you really have to have a desire to win - for me to win is the most important.
