In regular games, each bowler will compete against the bowler in the same lineup position on the opposite team for one point, and team total for three points, 1.5 points for a tie. </font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="VERDANA,ARIAL,HELVETICA,TAHOMA">Not entirely true. What you described is a match point system, commonly confused with Petersen points.
In a Petersen point system, points are awarded for each "block" of pins scored. For examples, if the "block" is defined as 50 pins, and you shoot 575, you would receive 11.5 Petersen points. In addition, bonus points are awarded for victories. If you took 3 of 4 points, and 10 points were awarded for each victory, you would receive a total of 41.5 points for the evening.
Please, someone correct any mistakes in this interpretation.
