PAPA, the Professional & Amateur Pinball Association, will broadcast parts of its championship tournaments on GeekGamer.tv today through Sunday, April 14, according to a post on the association's official website.
The 2012 Tournament Circuit Final, which is comprised of Tournament Circuit leaders and event winners determined over a year of play, began today, April 11, and started streaming at 9:30 a.m. ET on GeekGamer.tv. The top player will receive the title of PAPA Circuit Player of the Year.
In Pinburgh 2013, a concurrent tournament open to those who registered, competitors are guaranteed two full days of match play regardless of their skill level.
