The third PAPA Circuit event of the season was completed this past weekend at the Northwest Pinball Championships. Some of the best players in the world were in attendance, and Daniele Acciari of Italy received his automatic bid into the Circuit Final by taking home the title. Daniele overcame a loss on Attack from Mars in the finals to then win both Jackbot and Dracula. The cameras were rolling, and videos of all three games will be posted on the PAPA blog in the coming weeks.
With the third event of the Circuit season completed, Trent Augenstein retains a narrow lead over Zach Sharpe 156 to 153 in the standings. After Trent and Zach, the top five are rounded out with Adam Becker 121, Cayle George 105, and Daniele Acciari 100. The best five results for each competitor are counted toward their year-end total, and the top twenty overall in the standings in addition to any Circuit event winner outside of the top twenty will be invited to the Circuit Final at PAPA HQ the day before Pinburgh 2013.
Special thanks to all organizers involved in helping the event run smoothly. The next Circuit event is California Extreme July 27-29 in Santa Clara, California.
