It is still sinking in that I accomplished this ultimate feat that is sooooo hard to get....

Six game session #1099 on Thursday July 30, 2020 (games 6589 thru 6594) put me on top of a bowling plateau that not a great number of people have reached - an ultimate achievement of a 3-game 800 series (Which happens to also be only the 7th 750+ 3-game series of my lifetime).

My previous bowling achievement post from last year resulted thru :

Four - 300 Perfect Games
One - 299 Game

Earlier this year I also bowled achieving :

My Second Lifetime 299 Game on March 04, 2020 - leaving a ringing 10 pin as the shot was dead flush perfect and not striking :

My Fifth Lifetime 300 Perfect Game on May 16, 2020 :

My Sixth Lifetime 300 Perfect Game on May 29, 2020 - with a personal best "official" three game series (Series B game 4 5 6) of 782 :

Now I have a personal best six game series of 1472 (my 7th lifetime 1400+ six game series) Series A - 665 (game 1 of 204 on monitor not shown)...

This Game 4 starting out was my Third Lifetime 299 Game in Series B (light pocket hit leaving the 8 pin that did not carry for a 7th 300 game) - resulting in finishing with a 299-252-256 = 807 Series :

The one bad shot that occurred just happened to be in the fill frame of the second game with a greek church split 5 count, had to make a substantial adjustment and a new line of path on the next shot in the right lane (first shot of game 6 in frame 2) not knowing if I made the right decision as the lanes were getting pretty unpredictable on break point reactions and hit 8 of 9 strikes in game 6 as the left lane struck all 5 times with two micro adjustments and executing well....

As for the right lane, the first shot of the new target and path struck and the second shot in the 4th frame left a ringing 10 pin that shook but did not fall, however I converted the spare....

Struck dead flush in frames 6 and 8, as frame 10 I stayed put in the same position and ball speed, as the ball matched its path with same break point but really cut sharper to the left resulting in a fast 8 count leaving the 4-7 pin standing and almost split as the major adjustment in the right lane only held 4 times within the pocket area on the final game....

Then I looked at the monitor not knowing how close I was or if I had reached the 249 needed to accomplish this incredible feat of an 800, as I still needed to spare it and have one fill shot needing 2 pins, as I was crying on the approach and had to step off and regroup as it was so mentally hard and took the shot as I make this 4-7 spare around 98 percent of the time and converted it hitting the 4 pin on the left side almost missing it....

I was in more tears as the pins were water eyed vision and kept the bowling ball on the lane as I nailed a 9 count on the final shot closing out with an 807....

For you bowlers out there, the ball I shot this 800 with was the Motiv Forge Fire (layout 40* x 3.5 x 40*) as my PAP measurement is right handed 6.00" and 1.00' up....

This ball also contributed to the 5th and 6th 300 Perfect Games of recent....The second 299 game was with the Motiv Venom Recoil ball.

All five of my different Motiv bowling balls are averaging between 200.67 to 208.71 as they all have 120 games each on them and only resurfaced once after the 60th game.

I always said I would trade all my Perfect 300 games for ONE 3-Game 800 series but now I don't have to as I can go to my grave with confidence knowing I achieved a 3 game 800 series !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is awesome. I probably haven't scored 800 points in all of my bowling. I was in the lane next to a guy that missed his first 300 game by 3 pins. He was disappointed to say the least.
