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.

$150,000 Freebuy Super Series Returns to Americas Cardroom August 28th.

acrfreebuy2

“Our world-famous $150,000 Freebuy Super Series is back to end the summer with a Texas Hold’em bang,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “We’re offering 10 straight days of 100% free tournaments. This is not a buy-in series sprinkled with a few freerolls. Every single tournament is free to enter and it all adds up to $150,000 in guaranteed prize money.”

The $150,000 Freebuy Super Series first launched in May 2015. The initial 10-day series offered players the chance to play free tournaments with real money prize pools and was a massive success, attracting a record number of new players to Americas Cardroom.

The Freebuy Super Series II takes place from August 28th through September 6th. The series is packed exclusively with freebuy tournaments. A freebuy is an Americas Cardroom innovation that combines freerolls and rebuy/add-on tournament format to create a unique event for free and real money poker players.

When a player registers for a Freebuy tourney, the player pays absolutely nothing and receives a chip stack for free. Each tourney also features real money rebuys and add-ons from $.01 to $20, depending on the tournament.

The Freebuy Super Series is especially attractive to new players who want to test the Americas Cardroom waters without having to deposit. Players are not required to make a deposit to participate in any tournament of the Freebuy Super Series tournaments. But if you are a real money player, you may rebuy or add-on to build a bigger chip stack.

Registration for each Freebuy tournament opens 2 hours prior to the start of the tournament and closes 2 hours after the event begins. Players will receive a 1,000 chip starting stack when they register. Rebuys are available for 2 hours after the tournament starts and each rebuy gives players an additional 2,500 chips. After 3 hours, a 10,000 add-on is made available to players.

$150,000 in prize pools guarantees from Aug 28th to Sept 6th

acrfreebuy2

The Freebuy Super Series II gets you into the game to compete for thousands of dollars for free!

Best of all, from Aug 28th to Sept 6th we will host our second Freebuy tournament series with $150,000 in prize pool guarantees! Our Freebuy format, which is a new type of tournaments that allows players to enter at absolutely no cost and compete for real money! These Freebuy tourneys have a rebuy/add-on structure but no cost for the initial entry, giving everyone with an ACR account an opportunity to play! Registration begins two hours before each Freebuy tournament starts and the late registration is open for two hours (if capped players isnt met). The optional add-on period is three hours after the Freebuy kicks off. The series is open to all players with an ACR account, whether or not you’ve ever made a deposit. Simply register for the tournament and you’ll be sat at a table with a starting stack. You may then choose to add to your stack with a rebuy and add-on or just fight it out with the chips you receive with your initial free entry. Rebuy and add-on units range from just $0.01 to $20 but you have an opportunity to win whether you add to your chip stack or not!
