The Malaysian eventually regained the lead with another strong game of 222 in the 17th. Kulick again failed to recover with another lack luster 174 to go behind Roslan by 48 pins. Both were unable to end with better games so Roslan finished atop with 186 on a 1225 series and a total of 3768.
Kulick registered 1115 in the third series to settle for second position with 3725, 43 pins adrift while the Russian ended the strongest with 222 to claim third spot with 3710. Two-time champion, Aumi Guerra of Dominican Republic was fourth with 3667 and Korea's Jeon Eunhee completing the top five with 3614.
The biggest mover was Costa Rica's Jessica Atan-Chan, up from 22nd to 13th with 3492 while the second biggest mover was Indonesia's Shinta Ceysaria from 16th to ninth with 3567. The cut at 24th position went to Amandine Jacques of France with 3371.
The women will end their four blocks of qualifying tomorrow at 9:00 hrs while the men will resume with their fourth block in the afternoon. The top 24 men and top 24 women with the highest pinfalls will advance to the next round.
