The King of San Francisco – Results!

December 9, 2012


On Thursday, 44 players competed in the first San Francisco City Pinball Championship, hosted by Free Gold Watch.  The turnout was awesome with lots of first-time tournament players as well as representation from all three bay area pinball leagues.  Everyone was super cool and excited to put their flipper skills to the test.

Per (pronounced ‘pear’) Schwarzenberger took the helm as tournament organizer and really hit a home run with his first tournament.  Everything went great.
We would like to thank our sponsors and partners for their help in making this event a success:
Free Gold Watch for the super cool venue
Pinball Pirate for the best-maintained pinball games in the City
Pabst for many beers
Chabot Space and Science Center for donating passes
Playland-not-at-the-Beach for donating passes (30+ pinballs, check them out)
Pacific Pinball Museum for discount coupons (90+ pinballs)
STERN Pinball for pinball key chains
Per would like to say thanks also to the volunteers: Matt, Andreas, Eric, Melissa, Darren and Santa Jon.

2011 PAPA World Champion, Andrei Massenkoff is also the 2012 San Francisco City Champ!


Andrei received a special, one of a kind hoody from Free Gold Watch

The side tournament on Whirlwind just cost some quarters, and players got three games to put up their best score.  I was feeling good with my 10.5 Million, which held up for several hours, but as the top players got knocked out of the main tournament they kicked me down a few flights of steps in the side tournament.    Andrei took both the main tournament and the side tournament for a huge victory.
