Picking up a spare in the non-traditional method. For example, the 3-10 split is best picked up by fitting the ball between the 3 and 10 pins; it can also be picked the “hard way” by hitting the 3 pin left of center and deflecting it into the 10 pin. Some times it refers to getting a Dutch 200 game…i.e., getting a 200 score the “hard way”.
