2018 PBA WBT Bowling Tour Thailand Finals Step 4 featuring Rafiq Ismail vs Stuart William

The next stop for PBA Tour players who are chasing the top eight places on the 2018 Go Bowling! PBA Tour earnings list for a berth in the end-of-season PBA Clash will be the PBA International-World Bowling Tour Thailand, Sept. 22-28, at Blu-O Rhythm & Bowl Paragon in Bangkok where the tournament’s US$32,250 first prize could play a significant role in the 2018 earnings race.
The WBT Thailand format includes three three-game qualifying blocks with nine-game pinfall totals determining the 42 players who will advance to Round Two which involves qualifiers 25-42 bowling six games (all previous pins are dropped). The top 10 from Round Two will join qualifiers 9-24 for another six-game block in Round Three. The top 12 from Round Three will join qualifiers 1-8 for the six-game Round Four.

Round Four will decide the seven players who will join the highest-qualifying Thai player for the final round on Friday, Sept. 28, that will be a modified stepladder schedule.

Match One will include finalists 6, 7 and 8. The winner moves on to Match Two along with finalists 4 and 5. That winner bowls finalist 3 in Match Three. The Match Three winner bowls finalist 2 in the semifinal match. The semifinal winner advances to the championship match where he/she has to beat finalist 1 twice in order to win the event.

The winner will earn a PBA Tour title if he/she is a PBA member and doesn’t accept handicap pins (like many WBT events, WBT Thailand offers women 8 handicap pins per game).
