The High Five Returns October 19th With $977K in Prize Pools and a $420,000 Main Event!

It’s time to smoke the tables again. Americas Cardroom is rolling five days of big prize pools into one big tournament series. The High Five, a familiar series to frequent Americas Cardroom players, runs from October 19th-23rd and features $977,500 in guaranteed prize money. Chief among the tournaments is a $420,000 guaranteed Main Event.

“The High Five is back for a third time this year, so grab your buds and get ready to roll,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. We’re putting another $977,500 in guaranteed prize money on the table through 25 total tournaments. After a wildly successful $4.5 Million GTD OSS Cub3d that paid out over $6.5 million, we’re excited to bring back a player-favorite this October.”

The High Five runs from October 19th through 23rd and offers up $977,500 in guaranteed prize money. The 5-day schedule features five tournaments per day, including No Limit Hold’em, PLO, Hyper Turbos, Rebuys, Knockouts, and others. Buy-ins start as low as $3.

Once again, the Main Event features a $420,000 guaranteed prize pool on the final day of the series. In keeping with the 420 theme, the buy-in for the tournament is $420+35. Also back by popular demand is the famous “courtesy” break at 4:20pm ET on each day of the series.

While $420,000 is guaranteed, the Main Event is likely to exceed expectations. Those who have played at Americas Cardroom will recall that June’s High Five Main Event failed to cover, offering an overlay of about $5,000 and great value for those who played. However, thanks to the recent OSS Cub3d, and the buzz surrounding their upcoming real money product launch ofSit & Go 2.0, Americas Cardroom has grown its community by leaps and bounds.

Americas Cardroom’s OSS Cub3d Pays Out Over $6.5 Million in Prize Money!

San Jose, Costa Rica – September 13, 2016 – Just one-third of Americas Cardroom’s recent OSS Cub3d was dubbed ‘Bigger’, but it turns out that the entire poker tournament series was gigantic. The $4,500,000 GTD OSS Cub3d, which featured the Mini, Regular, and Bigger Online Super Series, paid out a record $6.5 million in prize money, making it Americas Cardroom’s most successful tournament series yet.

“We crowned more winners, paid out more money, and welcomed more players to our community than ever before,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “The OSS Cub3d wasn’t just a poker series. It was a celebration of online poker and we can’t wait to show players what’s next.”

The OSS Cub3d was a 3-part series that ran from August 14th through September 12th. It was made up of three legs — the MOSS (Mini Online Super Series), OSS, (Online Super Series) and BOSS (Bigger Online Super Series).

Each of the three legs featured large-scale guaranteed Main Events, with the MOSS laying down $150,000, OSS $1 Million and BOSS $500,000. There was $4.5 million in guaranteed prize money overall, but the final tally reveals much larger payouts. In total, the tournament series paid out an impressive $6,557,554.

While the large prize pool value is worth noting, even more impressive is the fact that the series, which included 141 events, featured only six overlays totaling $44,928. It’s a sign that Americas Cardroom has come a long way. Even the $1,000,000 GTD Million Dollar Sunday tournament covered for just the second time in their history.

The OSS Cub3d Main Event titles went to forrestranfar (MOSS, $43,934), SeaBassCI (OSS, $178,500 after final table deal), and Flushie16 (BOSS, $158,165). In addition to those first place prizes, each Main Event winner earned a commemorative sterling silver bracelet.

Americas Cardroom also featured a leaderboard competition that tracked play and performance throughout the OSS Cub3d. The top four players — Thrash370, CamIsTheMan,hotandcold=hold, and Tgun21 — each secured a $4,900 Punta Cana Poker Classic package that includes the Main Event buy-in, all-inclusive accommodations for two, and more.

The Punta Cana Poker Classic runs from October 25th through 31st at the luxurious Melia Caribe Tropical. Organizers have reserved The Level section of the resort for package winners, creating a private poker paradise.

Poker players interested in joining the OSS Cub3d leaderboard winners in paradise can get their $4,900 package this Sunday night at Americas Cardroom by playing. Seven packages are guaranteed to go through two separate tournaments at 6pm and 8pm ET.

$500,000 GTD MDS Main Event Part of Huge Sunday Tournament Lineup.

San Jose, Costa Rica – October 26, 2015 – Talk about a fabulous weekend. Literally. An online poker player with the moniker MR FABULOUS took down last night’s $500,000 guaranteed tournament after negotiating a final table deal with Caspershmubbs. The online poker tournament featured $500,000 in guaranteed prize money, fueled by a total of 1,788 entries, and was part of a tournament lineup with larger-than-expected prize pools.

“We crowned another $500k GTD Main Event winner last night but we’re not done yet,” stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “We’ve got another million dollars up for grabs over the next two Sundays. If you’re serious about poker, you’ll want to find a satellite right now.”

The $500,000 Guarantee is part of Americas Cardroom’s $5 Million Guaranteed promotion, which will see a total of $5 million in guaranteed prize money spread out on the table throughNovember 8th, all via Sunday Main Events.

Last night’s tournament saw MR FABULOUS and Caspershmubbs negotiate a final deal with Caspershmubbs leading in chips. MR FABULOUS earned $69,921 and Caspershmubbs walked away with $75,578. The two then played it out for an extra $10,000, set aside for the winner, with MR FABULOUS ultimately earning the tournament champion title and $79,921 overall.

The $500,000 Guarantee was part of a Sunday tournament lineup at Americas Cardroom that saw significant prize pools. The Sunday Special featured a guarantee of $125,000, plus a$75,000 GTD Hold’em tournament. Also worth noting is the $40,000 GTD High Roller event, whose prize pool jumped up to $58,000.

Americas Cardroom Issues Official Statement On Rumored $5 Million GTD Promotion.

San Jose, Costa Rica – August 1, 2015 – The old saying goes that ‘all publicity is good publicity’, but some rumors floating around the internet have caused online poker room, Americas Cardroom, to make an official statement and set the record straight.

It all started on Friday afternoon when word started spreading in online poker forums about a ‘$5 Million Guaranteed’ promotion that was being offered by Americas Cardroom. It was said that this promotion, which included five separate $1,000,000 GTD Texas Hold’em tourneys in September and October, was a done deal.

Management from Americas Cardroom was contacted for comment and wishes it to be known that the news circulating around the online poker forums was leaked information without official authorization.

“We’re happy that online poker players are interested in our tournaments, but the recent chatter in the online poker forums is not official policy yet. It is interesting however, how difficult it is to keep this kind of big news under wraps,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “All that being said, the $5 Million Guranteed promo is something that we will announce on Monday if our upcoming Million Dollar Sunday is a success.”

The Million Dollar Sunday is the signature tournament offered by Americas Cardroom. They’ve had two successful ones already this year, with the next coming this Sunday, August 2nd at 3pm ET. There is a $1,000,000 GTD prize pool, with $200,000 earmarked for the first place winner.

Added Harris, “We’re really excited about this next Million Dollar Sunday, with all our internal forecasts predicting a great turnout. Visit our site on Sunday as there could be that $5 Million GTD promo announcement after all.
