Anthony Simonsen, Francois Lavoie, Tom Smallwood, Kyle Troup and Dick Allen will have huge money on the line when the seeding round takes place at 4 p.m. Eastern on Saturday. Fans will be able to watch live exclusively on FloBowling from Bowlero Jupiter in Florida.

The five players will compete in a three-game seeding round with total pinfall determining who earns which seed. The players will all bowl together on the same pair being used for Sunday’s TV finals.

What’s at stake is a large amount of guaranteed money. The player who earns the top seed through the seeding round is guaranteed at least second place in the event and the $130,000 prize. They are also guaranteed a shot at the top prize of $250,000.

The second-place player in the seeding round will be guaranteed at least $80,000, while the third-place finisher will earn at least $60,000.

The players who finish fourth and fifth in the seeding round are guaranteed $50,000. That means the difference between finishing first and fourth in the seeding round is a difference of $80,000.

Six-time PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte emphasized the importance of the seeding round in the close of the FS1 broadcast on Sunday.

“I think we are going to see an incredible five-five matchup,” Belmonte said. “That seeding round, though, that is going to be one of the most intense seeding rounds I think I’ll ever see.”
