Can you to choose to stop the first part of a frame early. For example let's say you have knocked down 8 pins and there is only a 5 and 2 left. If one of the top cards is a 5 you could use it to knock down a 9th pin but that would leave just the 2. If the other remaining 2 was already used there would be no possible way of knocking down the last pin. However if there was still one or two 7 cards face down you could elect to stop at 8 pins and then hope to turn one over as part of your second ball thereby earning yourself a spare. Is stopping at 8 pins in the above example legal?
It seems to be advantageous to stop the first frame early in many instances so in the interest of trying to get the highest score possible I am presuming that it is legal.
