What does the term robin hood mean in the game of darts?
I heard this mentioned in one of the PDC televised games but I have now forgot what it means?
A robin hood in darts is when a player throws a dart and it lands directly on top of another dart.
This dart does not count towards your score. For any score to be valid in the game of darts the tip of the dart must come into contact with the dartboard.

A robin hood does not happen as often in matches with lower quality players as they are not as good at throwing darts in a close proximity over and over, i.e. the treble 20.
