10 strikes in a row from frames 1 through 10 would be a 260, but you would still get to bowl 2 balls in the tenth frame so the score could be higher.
One way to get a score of 289 in bowling is to spare the first frame, get strikes in frames 2 through 9, 2 strikes in the 10th frame and then a 9 count. Another way of getting it is by getting the first nine strikes, first in the tenth then a nine count and the pick up
The absolute lowest score would be 60. First frame - Strike Second frame - Two Gutter Balls Third frame - Strike Fourth frame - Two Gutter Balls Fifth frame - Strike Sixth frame - Two Gutter Balls Seventh frame - Two Gutter Balls Eighth frame - Two Gutter Balls Ninth frame - Two Gutter Balls Tenth frame - 3 Strikes (Total points here = 30)
In tenpin bowling, it's pretty hard as the bowler must throw 10 strikes in a row. The only two ways I know of a tenpin bowler getting a 289 score is ... 1) Get a spare in the 1st frame, then throw 10 strikes in a row (from the 2nd frame through the second ball in the 10th frame), and then get a 9 count on the last ball in the tenth frame. 2) Throw 10 strikes in a row (1st frame through the first ball of the 10th frame), then get a 9 count with the second ball in the 10th frame and convert the spare with the third ball.
3 if you get two strikes or a spare. otherwise, only two.
To score a 279 in 10 Pin Bowling, you would need to bowl a Spare in the first frame followed by 8 strikes & for the tenth frame you would need a Strike followed by a 9 spare as shown below. 9/, X, X, X, X, X, X, X, X, X, 9/ The score would show as this during the game 20,50,80,110,140,170,200,230,259,279
There is no specific name for a series of ten strikes (although to bowl that, you would have to be an incredible bowler). What you might be inquiring about is a perfect game, which is only achieved by throwing twelve strikes (as the tenth frame allows you the chance to roll three strikes).
The minimum number of pins you would need to knock down to get a 260 would be 97: nine strikes in a row, followed by a 6-1 in the tenth frame. Obviously, it's not the number of total pins that matter, but the number of strikes in a row; it's possible to knock down the same 97 pins and yet only score a 97 game.
189 ... the bowler would get nine pins on every first ball and make each spare. The fill ball in the tenth frame would also knock down nine pins. http://euler.slu.edu/~johnson/files/maths/bowling.pdf
No. Technically there are only ten frames in bowling. If you Spare in the tenth frame, you get a bonus shot called a fill shot. If you strike in the tenth frame, you get two bonus/fill shots.no
If you get a spare in the tenth frame, the extra shot you get is sometimes called the eleventh frame. If your first shot in the tenth frame is a strike, your next shot is sometimes refereed to as the eleventh frame and your final shot is sometimes called the twelfth frame.
