In professional darts, there are two main organisations. BDO (British Darts Organisation) and PDC (Professional Darts Corporation). There is fierce rivalry between the two. The BDO used to be the only one, but some of the top players like Phil Taylor thought the owners didn't do enough to get big tournaments and good prize money. So he and a few other players broke away and started the PDC in 1992. The PDC has all the best players, the better tournaments and better prize money. The PDC World Championship is held at Alexandra Palace in London, usually from mid December to early January. The most recent 2010 Championship had 72 players with a winners' cheque of £200,000. The BDO World Championship is held at Frimley Green in Surrey, this year it had 32 players with a winners' cheque of £100,000.

It is usual for BDO players to make the switch to the PDC if they want to become full time, and it is called darts' bitter divide.
