Congratulations to Maka H. for winning the 2013 Shawnee Pinball Open. Jason S. placed second, Phil C. placed third, Lonnie M. placed fourth. See here for full A Division results.
The final match was amazing. I wish I had a video of it. It was on Iron Man and after ball 2 both players had 19m points and were separated by only a few thousand. It was basically one ball to win it. Maka started Jericho and that ended up being what sealed the deal. I don’t remember the final scores, but they were great scores on Iron Man by any standards. Add to it that it was the final match of the tournament and it was really special.
Congratulations to Joel W. for winning the B Division of the 2103 Shawnee Open. Stu A. placed second, Nathan P. placed third, and Mike O. placed fourth. See here for full B Division results. I should add that during the B Division finals Joel put up the highest score for Iron Man during the tournament, both qualifying and division play. It was an impressive game. I also believe that Stu put the Grand Champion score on The Addams Family during the finals, another impressive game.
