The score is 90.

Explanation:

A turkey is three strikes in a row. The first strike is worth 10 pins plus the next two balls rolled. The second strike is worth another tens pins plus the next two balls rolled. The third strike is worth 10 pins plus the next two balls rolled. In order to count the value, I would need to know the next 1-2 frames pin count. See example below.

1st..2nd..3rd..4th..5th

..X.....X......X.....X.....X

.30...60....90..120..150

In the above scenario the, "turkey" (frames 1, 2, & 3) is worth 90 pins.

1st..2nd..3rd..4th..5th

..X.....X......X....9/.....X

.30...59....79...99....?

In the above scenario, the "turkey" (frames 1, 2, & 3) is worth 79 pins.

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).

A turkey is three strikes in a row. In ten-pin Bowling, this results in an increase in scoring for the initial strike to the maximum of 30 points (10 points plus 10 for each of the two succeeding balls thrown, which are strikes).

it would depend on the score of the fourth shot therefore it would be 70 plus the next 2 shots.
