Results

The 2022 Baker Doubles Tournament took place on Sunday, October 23.  We floored 36 teams for this year’s event, which was up from last year but still short of a full field of 63.  That being said, we still paid as advertised with first place receiving $2200 and low to cash getting $550 (which was above the $400 advertised).

Teams bowled 8 baker games during qualifying with the top 6 teams advancing to the round robin match play.

When the qualifying was done the 6 teams that advanced were:

PLACE                                   TEAM GAMES AVERAGE TOTAL PINS PLUS/MINUS
1 Nick Miseno / Don Herrington 8 226.50 1812 +212
2 Roy Vanderbogart / Justin Barcomb 8 223.38 1787 +187
3 Christian Winters / Ben Bohannon 8 210.25 1682 +82
4 Ray Cyr / Steve Arehart 8 205.38 1643 +43
5 Larry Porter / Dave Jecko 8 202.75 1622 +22
6 Karon Henderson / Darian LeMay 8 201.38 1611 +11

 

This year the tournament was contested on KEGEL KRYPTON.  This was a 43’ pattern just under a 3:1 ratio.  The pattern was difficult as only 7 of the 36 teams finished qualifying on the plus side.  After the 8 games of qualifying, Nick Miseno and Don Herrington held a 25 pin lead over Roy Vanderbogart and Justin Barcomb.  The top six teams moved onto round robin match play where each match play win was worth 30 bonus pins.  Teams each got 15 bonus pins for a tie.  Final standings were determined by total pins after match play.

Here then are the final standings after match play:

PLACE TEAM MATCH PLAY +/- PRIZE
1 Roy Vanderbogart / Justin Barcomb 3-3 +361 $2200
2 Nick Miseno / Don Herrington 2-4 +295 $1200
3 Larry Porter / Dave Jecko 4-2 +201 $850
4 Karon Henderson / Darian LeMay 5-1 +187 $750
5 Ray Cyr / Steven Arehart 2-4 +95 $650
6 Christian Winters / Ben Bohannon 1-5 -29 $550
