Strike Bowl Ngamwongwan in Nonthaburi.

    The event was the third tournament of the 2012 ABF Tour and the first that included a women's division.

    In the men's final, Siu Hong defeated fellow countryman Wicky Yeung, 210-174, to wrap up the title. Saebe saved her best for the last game, defeating compatriot Chantanee Sarnswang, 223-206, to win her second consecutive ABF Tour women's title in Bangkok.

    Siu Hong rolled some high scores on his way to the title. He eliminated former Asian Games champion Ryan Lalisang, Indonesia, 278-214, and local standout Badin Lerdpiriyasakulkut, 258-243, before he edged Malaysia's Kang Bo Long in the semifinal, 202-190.

    The fourth ABF Tour stop will be in Cairo, Egypt on April 30. The 2012 ABF Tour consists of eighth tournaments - four in the Middle East, all without a women's division, and four in East Asia, all including a women's division.

    Bowlers earn ranking points based on how they finish in each event. Those points will be tabulated throughout the season to determine the top 16 men and top 16 women who will qualify for the Tournament of Champions to be held in 2013.
