"I've been whipped real bad"


Those are amazing scores and even today would stand at 3rd place.  (record is 59k)

I remember reading about that contest awhile back.  Was the 3 minute track I think and she had said Han bodied her completely IIRC.   Is there any record of what Han's score was?

Han's score in the finals of the Women's division was 53,220, for which she won $4000.

Eric Ginner's score in the Open final was 52,341, for which he won $12000.

Perhaps Ms. Han should have entered the Open division...

Julie Winecoff


Looks like that did it.

It is indeed Julie Winecoff (now Scoggins), the runner-up to Ok-Soo Han in the 1981 Atari Centipede Championships.



I had actually wanted to find a current picture of Ok-Soo Han and use her, but I was able to find her married name, husband's name, and even address, but no recent picture, so I used Julie instead. Julie has led a more public life since 1981, actually doing stand-up comedy. Search Youtube for Julie Scoggins.

PM me your address and shirt size (S,M,L,XL), jospehjo.

Let's proceed by expanding this photo gradually:

I agree with everything Vincent is saying right now

He needs to post more often.  Like at least daily I need Vincent posts.

I tend to disagree. I personally think the most accomplished arcade gamer is Hadeep. This guy had to sell his wife and his pigs to afford having a computer and a little bit of Internet. And during that time, he was able to conquer the wall-jump world record (held before by another well-accomplished gamer: Allen Staal).

Today, he might not have a wife, nor food to feed his 19 childrens, but he has the wall-jump record. It's all about dedication, and Hadeep proved he has what it takes.
