Not much, and yes I think it helps.

Play the next event.
Do you think darts is a mental game?
Darts is a game full of mental pitfalls, and few mental aids.

Not as such.
What do you do to withstand the pressure? Is it something, you just get used to? Or something one can learn?
Laugh at yourself if you are too serious.
Who do you think is the strongest player at the moment and why do you think so?
Too many possibilities to say I think.

There could be some more with time I would expect.
Do you think the sport will prosper further in future?
Seems OK now. Hope it continues its growth.
