The PBA announced today the ESPN telecast for the 2007 Lumber Liquidators Championship, Sunday, Dec. 9, has been moved to 8:30 p.m. EST.
The eight-bowler final round, which takes place Sunday at 1 p.m. EST at AMF Country Club Lanes in Baltimore, will air tape delayed on ESPN from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m.
The Lumber Liquidators Championship features a round robin match play format, with the top eight bowlers advancing to the championship round on Sunday. Normally, the top five advance to the final round in standard round robin events.
In Sunday’s final round, bowlers who finished fifth through eighth after round robin match play will compete in a one-game play-in match with all four bowlers rolling one game at the same time. The bowler with the best score among the four will advance to the first stepladder match.
From that point, the final round takes on the usual stepladder format, with the winner of the play-in match taking on the No. 4 seed, followed by that winner taking on the No. 3 seed. The winner of that match faces the No. 2 seed with that winner advancing to the title match to take on the top seed.
The winner will take home $25,000 and an exemption for the 2008-09 Denny’s PBA Tour season.
