    First round seeding order now posted. If you do the math and assuming no "no shows", you can figure out who you will be playing in the first round. Poor #200, 201, 300. They gotta play Keith Elwin!

    One of the best things about this tournament is playing match play among the best players in the world. I understand the idea of not wanting to get crushed, but:

    * You have four chances to beat this top player, including on games with which they might not be familiar.
    * There's always second place available on every game. Nothing wrong with 8 points if you can pull it off.
    * It's only one round. If you drop down, you'll play against others who had trouble in the first round.
    * Assuming you do have some success against the top players, the reward is...getting to play against more top players.

    All good points. I was star struck last year when I played well enough that my first match on Sat. morning included Jorian Englebrektsson. Of course he won, but we made him take a 3rd place on T3!

    Correction to my earlier post about Keith. They will re-seed the top 20 according to how they finish in the Circuit Final. So, #200, 201, 300 will only play Keith if he wins the circuit finals.

    Of all the top players I played last year, Jorian crushed it against me the most by far.

    EDIT: Looks like me and LOTR had more than that in common: We both finished tied for the same position overall.

    Absolutely! One of the hurdles we have in competitive pinball is overcoming peoples fears of playing highly ranked players. I hear it time and time again at tournaments where players will talk themselves out of playing because a Trent or Elwin is in attendance.

    Hey PA people, where can I play pinball tomorrow night?

    I'm staying at the Doubletree
    500 Mansfield Ave
    Pittsburgh, PA

    Are there any bars or places to play pin on location?
    After the 12 hour drive I will need a pin fix!

    Too late for the tourney at the Doublewide Grill?

    Here is the link for the Doublewide tournament Wednesday in Pittsburgh's South Side:

    There are many places to play in this general area, along East Carson street in Pittsburgh's south side.

    Hey Steve, I found you in the results! Maybe I will meet you this time. I see from your initial seeding you will be playing the 3rd place finisher in the circuit finals. Go get 'um!

    I'll be wearing a white VERMONT hockey jersey, at least on Saturday. Feel free to grab me and say "play better", assuming I'm not actually playing at the time.

    Nice 2014 starting seed for you, by the way. Good luck!

    #214 6 years ago

    I doubt we will make it in time for the Doublewide...any bars to hit up with a few pins?

    #215 6 years ago

    #253 here! Sorry for being so tardy to the roll call.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone soon! Mike

    Be there in about an hour if lucky. The food at the Double wide is pretty good, will sample it before the night is over for sure.

    #217 6 years ago

    Quick question. Do you have to purchase tokens to play each and every game in the main tournament? If so, how much should I plan on spending on tokens JUST for the tournament banks.

    Thanks

    #218 6 years ago

    You'll need 20 dollars minimum for 40 games. Although some of the EM's are only 1 token.

    #219 6 years ago

    will access to the extra parking lot be allowed on thursday as well?

    #220 6 years ago

    Day 1, I played way better than expected. Sitting in 14th seed in A div. Woot!

    Heck yeah! That's awesome. Note that you're tied with the OP of this topic.

    I'm tied for 35th in B. Considering how inconsistent I was yesterday, I'm pretty happy.

    Nice to have you with me in B Steve. Hope we get paired up. This is Jim by the way. See you there shortly. Breakfast this morning at bobs diner at 10. See if it tops gab and eat.

    #223 6 years ago

    I'm in B too somehow (#31) - scared of all these top name players in the division but should be fun!

    Also put up a few pix from yesterday here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.606497602765121.1073741827.422448484503368&type=1

    @LOTR-breath, will have to find ya or say hello - haven't met any folks from my home state of AL!

    #224 6 years ago

    Id be curious to know how far into the wait list they got.

    #225 6 years ago

    I think around 50-ish. I talked to Koi Morris who mentioned his friend got in and was around 50 I think

    #226 6 years ago

    Wow! If thats true thats actually pretty crazy. i was in the 70s

    Quoted from genex:

    I was surprised how high I placed as well considering I didn't even qualify last year in D. Sadly a lot of people tank it on purpose on Friday to make it in a group lesser then their skill level so they can make easy money. I seen it happen in some of my groups this year because I have played with some of the people in the past on Saturdays (when it counts) and know how good they are, yet they just happened to suck on Friday.
