I don't like the format when used in singles competition for a PBA title. Too much is on the line for that format. Best of three. Three game total pins. Traditional one game match. All fine options.

But I do like the format for the PBA league where they're really just trying to create drama and good TV, to ramp up the atmosphere, and to make it appear very competitive. I know the TV exposure, and the money associated with being on a team is valuable to these guys, but I think they probably consider it a gimmick. And its a good gimmick. It proved to be a huge part in TV rating increases, a better TV deal, and dramatically revamped PBA.
Nowadays, I open bowl practice and go to Nationals every year.

See you in Reno 2020!
