Russian: Хотите ли вы играть в шахматы? English: Would you like to play Chess?
This is called Deliberate Foul under chapter 2, rule 5b in USBC playing rules book. Yu will be credited with zero pinfall cuz u steppe on the foul line AND you will not allowed to bowl further in that frame. Your score would be 240!!!
heh 257 or 280? how about 240 :) now u're better off not stepping on the foul line. Since u signed scorecard, I wonder if that will get u disq? so how does ZERO sound for the entire 3 games :)
I want to thank you for your comment although it has not happend to me. My best Bowling game was 257. Here is a copy and paste from the NFHS Bowling Rule Book. I believe this applies to the ABC or USBC as well. Art. 7b - Deliberate FoulWhen a player deliberately fouls to benefit by the calling of a foul, the player shall be credited with zero pinfall for that delivery and not allowed further deliveries in that frame. If questions arise, Article 12, Provisional Ball, should be followed.Art. 12 - Provisional BallA provisional ball or frame shall be bowled when a protest involving a foul, legal pinfall or a dead ball is made and cannot be resolved. The following procedures apply when a dispute occurs:a. For the first ball of any frame, or after the second ball in the tenth frame if the first ball was a strike:1. Foul: The player shall complete the frame and then bowl one provisional ball at a full setup of pins.2. Illegal Pinfall: The player shall complete the frame and then bowl one provisional ball at the same setup which would have remained standing had the disputed pin(s) not have fallen.3. Dead Ball: The player shall complete the frame and then bowl a complete provisional frame. b. On a spare attempt or the third ball of the tenth frame: 1. Foul and Illegal Pinfall: No provisional ball is necessary.2. Dead Ball: A provisional ball shall be bowled at the same setup, which was standing when the disputed ball was bowled.The scoresheet and a record of both scores for the frame, which the provisional delivery was made, shall be kept. The protest must be referred to the Competition Manager/Games Committee for a final decision.
