Denver Open



$60,000 DENVER OPEN
Colorado Bowl, Denver, Colo., Jan 21-25, 1975

Laub Stops Streaker

Larry Laub won the title and Jim Stefanich the plaudits.

That was the story as Laub, San Francisco, Calif., won the $60,000 Denver Open, topping Stefanich, Joliet, Ill., 99-191, in the championship game.

But that title set-to was almost an anti-climax to the streak staged by Stefanich in the games leading up to his losing effort to Laub.

He totalled 815 pins, a record for three games on national television, as he rolled games of 258-278-279 in disposing of three game but out-classed opponents.
