'Wolfie' beaten early at the World Seniors Championships
Adams, runner-up in the inaugural competition in 2022, lost 3-0 to impressive American Leonard Gates in a last-16 tie. Gates averaged almost 97 per throw, the second highest in the entire event.
Adams had beaten Dave Prins 3-1 in his first round match.
Englishman Rob Thornton won the event for the second successive year, beating Richie Howson 5-2 in the final. Howson had beaten legend Phil Taylor 3-1 in his quarter-final before ending the run of Gates at the semi-final stage.
Seniors darts is open to the over 50s. Adams is 66 and a three-time winner of the BDO World title in his heyday.
