What does or does not work for you? Discussions with other site members about their results with different cleaners, polishes, pads, etc.
Discussions about successful adjustments made on tournament or league conditions. Ask other site members about a particular lane play problem, discussions about adjustments necessary on "sport conditions".
I have been watching amatuer bowling tourney and some of the pros on TV. What I have seen is that the majority of bowlers are down and in (meaning down the around 10 board and hitting the breakpoint at 10 to 5 board. I typally have bowled cross lane, throwing the ball between the middle and third arrow out to the 5 board at break point.
I am just wondering if there is any advantages to a down and in game over a cross lane or visa versa.
Comments or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Both have their place in a persons toolbox. I would say if you're able to play both lines, be versatile and work on both.
I play in two houses. One is synthetic and the other is guardian.
The synthetics wont allow me to swing the ball and favor a down and in. It's an easier house though.
The guardian is harder to play that way. The area on a THS doesn't forgive as much and can over-react. I have much better success swinging the ball in this case.
However, on my sport league in the guardian house(Scorpion pattern), I can't swing the ball. It will hit the out-of-bounds area and go in the gutter. I love to play straight up 10 or go from 15 to 12 or so in this case depending on the breakdown of the oil.
