PAPA and Geek Gamer TV teamed up again for live streaming coverage of the Pinburgh 2013 A Division final rounds, beginning at 9 am on April 14, 2013.
We watched some of the best players in the world battle it out for the Pinburgh Cup and a $7,500 cash prize, with a total of $60,000 in cash for the field. Pinburgh 2013 had the largest prize pool in pinball history. Keith Elwin stood as champion, surviving an onslaught from local favorite Cryss Stephens. Each won 2 of the 4 games in the final, but Keith finished second in the other games to carry the group. Jorgen Holm and Sean Grant worked hard to make the final but did not play as well.
Live coverage was on Geek Gamer TV, Twitch, and Ustream. Results can be found on papa.org. Links to the broadcast archives are below. Geek Gamer TV’s broadcast will be archived on pinball.org/videos soon.
Thanks again to our fans and friends, especially to those who helped with the broadcast: Chase Nunes, Greg Dunlap, Eden Stamm, Cayle George, Keith Johnson, Nicole Anne Reik, Jon Replogle, some lady with jazz hands, and more. Over 30,000 people watched as PAPA and Geek Gamer TV aired almost 24 hours of live play with commentary. We see these live streaming broadcasts as the start of something big, and hope you’ll join us next time.
