Ryan outlasts Paul in BBT Marathon for 1st BBT Title

1st Time BBT Champion Ryan U with Runner-up Mr. Smooth, Paul Bober

Lots of action Wednesday night as Ryan U, outlasted Paul Bober to win his first BBT Title in only his 3rd try. BBT History was made when we had our first tie in a championship match. Paul was down the entire championship game, but Ryan, left a 6/7/10 in the 9th, on a bad shot and a 7-10 in the 10th on a decent shot. Paul steps up and needs a double to close out Ryan, gets the first one and then a soft 10. He needs the spare to tie and thud...a spare.


Since this was the first BBT tie in a Championship match, the rules committee hastily gathered and decided that a 1 game roll-off would be bowled.

But before we got there, Mr. Smooth, Paul Bober is a really good bowler (and a nice guy). Here he walks in cold, starts shooting on fried lanes and continues to impress with his game after game, clutch performance. Don't give Paul a chance...he will take it and last night he struck out or got what he needed in each match game until the end when overcoming a 38 pin handicap spot on super fried lanes, was out of reach.

Ryan and Paul started with a double and then the rails fell off. Three splits for each, only one double by Paul and the 38 pin handicap was plenty as Ryan won 155/194 to 178/177 for Ryan.

Here is how it played out:


Qualifying:

Ryan led qualifying this week, followed by Battersby, Frankie (finally bowled), Lou V., last week's champ, Rob D and Mr. Smooth made the 6 man cut this week.

Florida bound Tittie missed by 8 pins, dispite a valent effort with a 248 the 2nd game, Wazy, PJ, Mikie D, Sip, Justine and new bowler Josh, rounded out the field.

Quarterfinals - 3 match games with the biggest loser moving on:


Match 1 had Frankie pounding the shi* out of Lou V...who "lost his look" in fact he lost his look so much, he is blind today...223/230 to 165/195. Match 2 featured Ryan versus Paul (Mr. Smooth) and he pounded him real good 201/240 to 214/215, but Paul struck out to tie for the biggest loser and the first roll-off in a long time versus Rob. Match 3 - Q (Battersby) slapped Rob up the head for a 37 pin win, 223/252 to 189/215.

Roll off - Rob started first, getting 5 pins and left a 2/8...not good, spared and then Mr. Smooth steps up .... boom, boom, boom, boom...hambone, closes out Rob.

Semi-Finals - Battersby versus Paul - coming off his dispatch of Rob D, Paul and Steve had a good match, but Paul prevailed 244/245 to 204/233. Good bowling Q. And Ryan spanked Frank pretty well, beating him 201/240 to 202/209...guess the match with Lou took it all out of Frankie...
