This week Jose de Sousa won the Grand Slam of Darts and entered the top 16 of the PDC Order of Merit. His nickname is The Special One and in the last months he certainly showed he is a special guy.
Although he is a great player he is terrible in counting at the same time. We bring you 8 funny moments by the Portuguese player.

5. When you tell your opponent he won’t checkout 20…
When you oponnent is on a checkout like 170 you can decide not to go for bulls-eye with your last dart and go for single 18 to leave 32. But when he is at double 10 you sure go for bulls-eye. Well, not when your name is Jose de Sousa…
José de Sousa is helderziend!

Jose, Jose, Jose!

1. Exhibtion shot goes wrong
José de Sousa had a perfect start against Michael van Gerwen during the Gibraltar Darts Trophy 2019 taking the first leg with a 112 checkout. But he got a little bit too excited in the next leg when he was on 120. He tried an exhibition shot but it went horribly wrong…
