After three rounds and a roll-off, it was 19-time PBA Tour and two-time PBA50 Tour winner, Amleto Monacelli who survived to win the one-ball elimination event seen on pba.com’s Xtra Frame online video service.
As a prelude to the PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open presented by Brunswick which starts Sunday, Monacelli outscored 47-time Tour and nine-time PBA50 Tour winner Walter Ray Williams Jr. in a roll-off, 10-9, after both players rolled nine-counts in the third round. Williams left a 10-pin on the final shot handing the win to Monacelli.
34-time PBA Tour winner and two-time PBA50 Tour titlist Parker Bohn III was eliminated in the first round leaving a solid nine-pin, while Monacelli, Williams and 37-time PBA Tour and three-time PBA50 Tour winner, Pete Weber all threw strikes.
In the second round Williams struck to advance, but Weber and Monacelli both left nine counts forcing a roll-off. Monacelli won the roll-off with a nine-count to Weber’s 4-6-7-10 split.
Next up on Xtra Frame will be first-round qualifying for the Johnny Petraglia BVL Open which begins Sunday morning at 8 a.m. ET. Action continues Monday and Tuesday, culminating with the stepladder finals at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
