PAPA streaming 2013 pinball championships online through the weekend

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. On Saturday, each will be assigned into one of four divisions based on their performance. Sunday will see the Pinburgh 2013 finals and a double elimination consolation tournament for those who didn't make it into the finals. At 9 a.m. on Sunday, PAPA will stream the finals of the Pinburgh 2013 tournament live on GeekGamer.tv.

The tournaments are being held at PAPA World Headquarters, a 40,000-square-foot warehouse in the greater Pittsburgh area. This year's prize package includes $60,000, with $7,500 earmarked for the first place winner in the highest ranked division. You can check out the results as they happen on PAPA's official current standings page.
