My good showing in round two got me bumped up with some higher level seeds for round three. It did not go well. One player won all four games which is so rare that he won a $100 bounty. We played Tommy (fourth), Indiana Jones (third), Genie (fourth) and Pat Hand (third).
The third round bounced me down from around 130 seed to around 250. We played Paragon (second), Taxi (first), Demolition Man (third) and a Williams Em (fourth).
Round five starts at 9:30. It is the last round of the day. When we are done today, we will know which division we will play in tomorrow.
Taylor is playing so well that he entered this round as a 53rd seed. He played in the fourth round against the designer of Monopoly.
Sorry for the long time between posts. Taylor and I are getting ready to head up to Pittsburgh, PA for Pinburgh 2014 at the PAPA facility. This is a three day tournament involving 400 players. The PAPA facility has an incredible collection of pinball machines which are well maintained and set to play at a punishingly difficult level. We will work to post during the tournament here and on the rivercityflippers instagram feed.
The pre-tournament seeding has River City Flippers members in the following positions: Bayless Rutherford at #67, Taylor Reese #228, Jeremy Hakes #240, Chris Booberg #257 and Emilia Phillips #358.
Here is a video from PAPA to give you an idea how things will go. Updates to follow.
