I'm pretty sure it's done for the benefit of the lower-average bowlers.

At 90% of 200, the difference between a 150 bowler and a 200 bowler is five pins. The difference between a 200 bowler and a 205 bowler is also five pins. To me, that's fair--as a 200 bowler, the difference in skill level between 200 and 205 is not that far from the difference between 150 and 200.

On the other hand, when a team is getting 20 or 30 pins per game that aren't covered in the handicap, that team's going to be a prohibitive favorite. The team in our league that had 30 pins not counted in the handicap went 100.5-39.5 in points this year. (We 'only' had 20 not counted, and I think we went 94.5-45.5.)

It's currently based on 230. I guess there are too many 240+ bowlers nowadays...
