About BLS-2015 Standard

TBrac-2006 Standard promotes the best tournament software for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2008 Server and Windows 2003 Server. CDE uses its experience with bowling software (since 1975) to provide the sport of bowling with the best in bracket and sidepot management software.

It’s very simple to use the software. Add a person’s name, enter the average to use for handicap purposes, assign a lane and then enter the bowler into any additional sidepots or brackets.

CDE Software and Tbrac-2006 R2 feature the best in bracket sidepot management, using a powerful randomization engine that assigns bowlers in a random and fair manner. Sure, you can set bracket assignments to be based on “as the dice is rolled”, but in many cases, bowlers can be assigned multiple times to the same opponent. When there is a large enough field of bowlers, this can be perceived as unfair, causing bowlers to drop out. Tbrac-2006’s uses a logical random method that minimizes or eliminates duplicate match-ups in brackets. In fact, Tbrac-2006 can optionally take some extra time and minimize duplicates in the cases that bowlers win the first game. This provides your bowlers a FAIR means of competition and better yet…. you don’t have to do any extra work.
