    Danielsson rolled games of 258, 279, 235 and 207 on his way to the title match, while Arnesen had scratch games of 227, 215, 233 and 196.

    Arnesen pocketed 8.000 NOK for finishing second, Pertti Lehto, Sweden, earned 5.200 NOK for third, Olli Tiainen, Finland, received 4.400 NOK for fourth, Owe Herrmann, Norway, garnered 3.600 NOK for fifth and Göran Bergendorff, Denmark, walked away with 2.800 NOK for sixth place.
