BOBBY WUNSCH WINS FIRST MAJOR LIGBT TITLE

Posted On: November 30, 2015

Babylon, NY:  Bobby Wunsch, a pharmaceutical assistant from East Meadow, NY, won the 2015 LIGBT Thanksgiving Major at AMF Babylon. Bobby, although owning 2 LIGBT regular titles, has been in a terrible slump due to a variety of physical ailments. In fact, Bobby has only cashed in 1 out of his last 9 LIGBT events. With his $2,000 victory, and first major title, it looks like Bobby is feeling better.

The final 5 shootout, worth almost $5,000, was a real battle. Bobby was only getting 30 pins in handicap while everyone else was getting between 42 and 69 pins! Bobby knew he had to get off to a fast start and began the match with 4 perfect shots. Bobby took the lead in the 8th frame and finished with a 243 giving him a 19 pin victory over Sun Kim, Flushing, NY who finished with a 224 and earning $1,000.

There were other great performances in the final shootout. Finishing third with a 214 was Clive Tobias, Huntington, NY earning $750. The next spot went to Joe LaBargo, Bayside, NY who struck out in the final frame to grab 4th with a 201 worth $600. The final spot in the shootout went to Maniram Basdeo, Bronx, NY with a 200 worth $500.

The AMF Babylon Thanksgiving Major drew an incredible 4 squad crowd of 250 entries plus 27 desperado entries. A total of 53 bowlers cashed (almost a 1 in 3 ratio) in a prize fund that paid $11,300. Kegel’s 35 foot Boardwalk pattern was used and scoring was on the high side for an LIGBT major with cuts ranging from 702 to 737. High series and high game of the tournament was shot by Terry Cooper, Brooklyn, NY with an 860 series, including a 300 game, in the Friday 9pm squad.

LIGBT’s next tournament is at AMF E. Meadow on Sunday, December 6th (1pm& 3pm). Top prizes are guaranteed to pay $1,000, $500, $300 and $250. One in 6 each squad advances to the finals and will cash for a minimum of $80. Entry fees are only $65 & $55. For complete results of the Thanksgiving Major please visit www.ligbtour.com.

Posted On: November 23, 2015

Sayville, NY:  James Dickerson, a 47 year old letter carrier from Norwalk, Connecticut, won his first LIGBT title at AMF Sayville in a special house shot tournament. James defeated Kyle Lathen, Bronx, NY, 289-273 in the final shootout to earn the $1,000 top prize and the LIGBT trophy. While Kyle earned $500 for second Dave Perrone, W. Babylon, NY earned $350 for third with a 272.

The 5 person shootout featured only one bowler with a title, Dave Perrone. The shootout quickly became a 2-person race as James and Sean kept throwing strikes and nine counts. Sean took a quick lead in the 8th frame but opened in the 9th giving James the opportunity to strike out the last 2 frames to secure the title. The final frame did have a lot of excitement as 3 of the finalists were trying to secure second place which eventually went to Kyle by one pin.

The AMF Sayville house shot tournament drew a nice crowd of 97 entries, advanced 17 bowlers to the finals, and paid out $3,640. As expected the house shot pattern resulted in high scoring; the cut was 783 in the 1pm squad and 813 in the 3pm squad (both LIGBT records!) High series of the tournament was shot by third place finisher Dave Perrone with an 890 series in the 1pm squad. There was only one 300 game and that was by our champion James Dickerson who shot his perfect game in the semi-finals.
