The Andy Varipapa 300
« on: September 04, 2013, 09:34:10 PM »
Well, I was on a hot streak tonight.  So close to getting my first 300.  This happened in my 2nd game tonight where I doubled, 9/ (solid 10 pin), then thew 9 in a row for a 279, which matches my highest game to date.  However, then throwing a turkey to start my 3rd game is what landed me the Varipapa 300.  If I could have only had the 3rd frame back where I left the solid 10 pin...

Overall, it was a solid night for just the second week of the season.  236-279-225 for a 740.  The balls of choice were the Outlaw (first 9 frames of game 1), Frantic (all of game 2 except the last fill ball in the 10th), and then opened the lanes up more with the Critical Theory in game 3 since I wanted to get more into the oil.

So with that being said, how many have ended up with the Andy Varipapa 300?

Up until last season, my max had been 16.  Always the Last 8 / first 8.  Had a few of them.  Then, Last year, I had a 280 (Last 10), then 289 (First 10 with a stone 8 in the 11th).  What really bothered my was not being able to get my 4th 800.  Finished with a 227/795.

I've rolled more Varipapa 300's than "proper" ones.

I did nearly the same back in 1996 for my first true 300 and a Varipapa.

doubles league, 4 game set. 238 for the first game, with the back 6. True 300 the second game. front 7 the 3rd game for a 216, finished off the night with 202.

Used a Columbia Pearl Quake the entire night.
