    The top 10 male and female point ranking leaders after the ninth and last stop of the 2103 DBT season advanced to the Tour finale, which was held July 7 in Emmen.

    All players bowled nine games round robin match play plus one game position round. The top three in each division advanced to the playoffs. The No. 3 seed bowled the No. 2 seed for the right to bowl the top seed for the title. All matches were decided in best-of-three game format.

    De Vries averaged 226.40 for ten games to earn the No. 1 seed in the men's division with 2439 total including 175 pins bonus. Jord van Weeren was a distant second at 2344 with Phil Hulst in third place with 2265.

    In the semifinal match, Van Weeren took a 1-0 lead with a huge 255-211 win, but last 2011 World Cup representative Hulst countered with back to back wins to advance to the title match.

    Top seeded De Vries won the low-scoring opening game, 189-170, but Hulst leveled the match with a 240-225 win in game two. De Vries rebounded with a 245-136 win to claim the 2013 Dutch Bowling Tour title and to earn a trip to Siberia.

    On the women's side, national champion Nicole Sanders averaged 211.80 and earned 135 bonus to win the qualifying with 2253 total, just three pins ahead of van der Tol, who was second with 2250 including 170 bonus. Lisanne Breeschoten took third place with 2086.

    Van der Tol easily won the first semifinal game, 254-170, but Breeschoten forced a deciding third game with a 223-212 win in game two. Van der Tol then earned her spot in the final with a 207-187 win in the decider.

    She carried the momentum into the title match and swept top-seeded Sanders thanks to two big games, 232-217 and 267-233, to claim the women's DBT title and to join De Vries at the 49th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup.
