GUY Caminsky produced only the second perfect 300 game in the 12-year history of the World Tenpin Masters.

Caminsky, the 2008 champion, completed the achievement during his drawn match against Paeng Nepomuceno in the opening match of day two at the Barnsley Metrodome.

"The 300 is not a title but it's something you always want to do, especially on television," said Caminsky, who follows in the footsteps of Jason Belmonte - the only other man to complete perfection at the Masters, which he did in 2005 in a first round match against Shalin Zulkifli.

"To bowl a perfect game at anytime is cool but to do it on the biggest stage makes it more special and it's something I will never forget.

"I think I was more nervous on the eighth frame as that secured me the point. But with the last three balls the pressure started mounting up and I really felt it.

"I felt it was meant to be. I had a lot of belief in myself but nerves are something you have to deal with in bowling.

"This weekend has been the biggest rollercoaster I could imagine. I was at the lowest ebb after my first match, so proud of myself to come back with a 2-0 over Osku and I'm elated at the 300. Now I'm hoping to get through, depending on what Osku does.

"Whatever happens I've gave it 110 per cent and you can't ask for anything more than that."

Nepomuceno, a tenpin bowling legend, admitted to being a big fan of the World Tenpin Masters.

He said: "I've enjoyed playing in this tournament and I look forward to playing in these types of tournaments. The World Tenpin Masters has always been one of my favourite tournaments to play in.

"I like the one-lane atmosphere and the pressure you get when you bowl - there's nothing like it. This is unique and brings out the best in you."

There was drama in the last match of the session as Chris Barnes, the 2006 winner, registered five strikes in a row to scrape past Matt Chamberlain and claim the last available semi-final place by only 17 pins.

"I've been three frames away from being eliminated by Matt but I've got through," said Barnes. "But it doesn't get any easier as now I have Dom (Barrett) and he has been European number one and one of the best guys in the world so no rest for the weary.

"It's only two games but it takes a bit out of you but if there's anything going my way it's that I made seven out of the last ten shows on the PBA tour. So I've had a lot of matches when it came to specifice shots to make a show or make a game on television.

"It was strike or go home - either I threw that strike in the last frame or my tournament was over. I'm now bowling against the best European player so it's going to be a dog fight. I would assume I would need to shoot another 500 series to be competitive."

The semi-finals will be Dom Barrett v Chris Barnes and Jason Belmonte v Guy Caminsky.
