CAMINSKY WINS THE WORLD TENPIN MASTERS
GUY Caminsky is the winner of the 2008 PartyCasino.com World Tenpin Masters.
South African Caminsky came from behind to win the trophy in a thrilling final as he defeated 2006 champion Chris Barnes 526-517.
Caminsky trailed by 258-249 at the halfway point but took the lead for the first time in the seventh frame of the second game and then held his nerve to clinch the victory.
Each bowler spared three times in the first game in front of a capacity crowd at the Barnsley Metrodome.
Barnes led by nine pins at the end of the opening game and following a further four frames, the American extended his lead by one further pin.
However, the turning point came in the seventh frame when the American spared.
Caminsky followed that up with a strike of his own as he went in front for the first time in the final and then showed what it meant to him by screaming out to the crowd.
Barnes maintained the pressure by continuing to hit strikes and it became a question of whether Caminsky could hold his nerve.
With three balls left, Caminsky needed two strikes and punched the air in delight as he got the first of them.
A strike with his next ball would give him the title.
It was successful and Caminsky jumped for joy as he had achieved his ambition of winning a major bowling tournament.
He lifted the trophy, claimed the title of World Tenpin Masters Champion and had also won £30,000.
