At stake is $100 every game, an additional $2,500 to the champion, and a fantastic freaking belt. Also at stake: elimination. In every game until the final four, the last-place finisher is eliminated immediately.
Can defending champion Daniele Acciari of Italy repeat his run from last year, from the first game to the last? Or will #1 seed Keith Elwin add another banner to the PAPA rafters?
All of it will be live on PAPAtv, with camera angles and commentary geared for beginners and experts. The broadcast starts at 9:30am ET (1:30pm UTC): PAPAtv on Twitch.
Join us for a great day of pinball, and spread the word.
