I once fouled twice for 240.......it's a math test.  See who can figure this one out.....I through 13 strikes........Dublin Bowl back in the 80's.

I remember when I was 16 years old, I started a game with the front 6, and then fouled, while the shot struck.  I was devistated, and the rest of the game, as well as the 2nd and 3rd, I was useless.  I completely fell apart mentally, and I may as well have just left the lanes after that.  I don't think I broke 160 for each of the last 2 games.

255 147 149, I'd say was my biggest fall. On a easy pattern.

Wow, Mike, that one's giving me a migrane!   About the only thing I can come up with is this:

 1        2        3        4        5        6        7        8        9        10
 x        x       f /        x        x        x        f /      x        x         xxx
20      40     60      90      110    130    150     180    210     240

But as far as the 13 strikes!.....man....the only thing I can guess is, that you struck on one of the fouls (even though it didn't count), and left some pin count on the other one. Thereby giving you.....'figuratively'.........13 strikes.

I don't know though..........Got any Advil?

My guess is something like this:

 1        2        3        4        5        6        7        8        9        10
 x        x        x        x        x        x        F F      x        x         xxx
30      60      90      120     140    150     150     180     210      240

where the two fouls were both strikes, giving a total of 13 "strikes" for the game.

I've also witnessed a guy in one of my leagues years ago shoot 290, who had the front 11 and guttered.

Since this thread has turned into a failblog, I'll mention that last year, I had the first 8 in my league, then guttered.  Oil was heavy, had to play it straight down the 2nd board on that lane, and just pushed it a little wide.  Didn't get the spare, and opened in the 10th.  And yeah, it was pretty upsetting.

For Mike Anthony:

I am going to take it the two fouls in the 6th were both "strikes". I do not believe you guttered, you are too good for that!

This is my 700th post.

For willproat14

297, 279, 240 - 816

Beautiful! (I see you reversed the last two numbers in games one and two)
