DAVID KUPERSZMID WINS $3,000 AT LIGBT MAJOR

Posted On: May 26, 2014

Babylon, NY:  David Kuperszmid, a 30 year old right-hander from Brooklyn, NY, won his first LIGBT title worth $3,000. David defeated Mike Milazzo, a 35 year old right-hander from Bellrose, NY, 264-255 in the final shootout. Mike, who was also looking for his first title, earned $1,500 for second while 4-time LIGBT champion Cary Fishman, New York, NY finished third with a 215 worth $750.  

The final shootout was a battle of the two young guns. Both bowlers had never cashed in an LIGBT event despite being members for over a year. Neither was nervous as both started the match with triples. The first open was left by Mike in the 5th frame which gave David a 30 pin lead after 7 frames due to the fact he was getting 17 pins more in handicap. Mike doubled in the 8th and 9th frames to make it close but failed to strike in the tenth giving David the victory.

CARY FISHMAN “STEALS” HIS 4TH LIGBT TITLE

Posted On: May 05, 2014

    

E. Meadow, NY: Cary Fishman, who owns his own cab and resides in New York City, struck out in the last 2 frames to shock second place finisher Justin Cohen, an 18 year old student from Melville, NY. Even third place finisher Julio Arnold, a security personnel director from Woodside, NY, thought he had a shot at the title before Cary stole the victory. Final scores in the shootout were Cary 228 ($1,000), Justin 227 ($500 scholarship), and Julio 218 ($250.)

The shootout had many lead changes with Cary trailing in third place most of the match. Cary’s luck changed when he converted the 5-10 split in the 8th frame and then threw 3 consecutive cross-over strikes. Justin needed only a mark in the 10th frame but he missed the 3-9 double wood spare which allowed Cary to throw one more strike for the victory. Cary’s final shot was perfect which gave him the $1,000 1 pin victory.
