The pattern doesn't look that tough but you're forgetting a couple of things.
1) The lane surface is old and beat up.
   This causes something called "lane topography" to come into play.
   Lane Topography is the valleys and ridges caused by balls hitting the lane   surface.
2) Twister pins!!!!!!!
 
These add up to something that is tougher than it looks on paper/computer screen.
free agency it is until i get a better offer.   LMAO
