Paul Nicholson Biography

Paul Nicholson is a famous Darts Player, who was born on May 10, 1979 in Australia. He continued his form by winning through to a European tour semi-final, where he was beaten by Adrian Lewis; this run effectively sealed his spot in the European Championships, as the 32nd seed, and the World Championships, due to there being more spots open to Pro Tour qualifiers this year. According to Astrologers, Paul Nicholson's zodiac sign is Taurus.

During his walk-on in his second-round match against Raymond van Barneveld in the 2011 World Matchplay, Nicholson mimicked former WWE wrestler CM Punk by having X’s marked on his hands, and also lifted up a Nexus scarf. However, he lost the match, 13-9. Then, when he met Phil Taylor, he once again mimicked CM Punk during his walk-on, using his signature pose on one knee, shouting “It’s clobberin’ time” and punching the air. During Taylor’s walk-on, Nicholson sat Indian-style on the stage, another trait of CM Punk, in an attempt to anger Taylor.

Nicholson earned qualification for the 2009 PDC World Darts Championship through the DPA rankings. He defeated Adrian Gray in the first round, winning all nine legs for a three sets to nil victory. He then beat world number 6 Adrian Lewis in the second round 4-3 and then came from two sets down to beat world number 11 Dennis Priestley 4-2 to advance to the quarter finals. In the quarter-finals, he lost to world number 3 at the time, James Wade but his tournament performance lifted him into the top 50 on the PDC Order of Merit.

In the 2011 UK Open, Nicholson defeated Phil Taylor in the last 16 by 9 legs to 8 and supposedly waved goodbye to him. While being interviewed at that year’s World Matchplay, Nicholson spoke of Taylor’s reaction and stated that when they met again, if Taylor did not bring his ‘A’ game he would “put him to bed”. Nicholson defended the gesture saying: ‘I was waving bye-bye to the demons which had dogged me in too many televised tournaments’. The comments garnered much media attention. Taylor reacted angrily to Nicholson’s comments, telling BBC Radio Stoke, “I think he’s very, very silly.” Taylor added that Nicholson “has a big mouth and won’t keep it shut”. He played Taylor in an eagerly anticipated match at the 2011 European Darts Championships and was beaten 10-7, despite being 7-6 ahead. He was then defeated at the 2011 World Grand Prix by Taylor 3-0.

Before joining the PDC Pro Tour, Nicholson was one of the top players in the Australian Grand Prix circuit, winning 15 titles in 2008. His performances led him to the top of the DPA rankings and earned him a spot in the 2008 Grand Slam of Darts. He was drawn in Group H with Kevin Painter, Darryl Fitton and WDF number one Gary Anderson. Nicholson caused a surprise, as he beat Anderson 5-4 in his opening group game. This was despite constant booing from the crowd, who began chanting “Who Are You?” during his walk-on and after his first three darts which was a maximum 180, he put his finger to his mouth at the crowd which caused the crowd to boo him almost every time he threw his darts. Despite beating Anderson, losses to Fitton and Painter eliminated him at the group stage.

At the 2011 UK Open, Nicholson won final-leg deciders against Gary Anderson in round four, and Phil Taylor in round five, to reach the quarter-finals. He lost 7-10 to eventual champion James Wade.
