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.

Americas Cardroom Lets Players Choose Their Own Poker Adventure With WSOP PCPC Satellites.

May 09, 2016 – The desert? Or the beach? Starting Sunday, May 15th, poker players get to make the call. Americas Cardroom today announced WSOP/PCPC Satellites. Every weekend between May 15th and June 24th, Americas Cardroom is holding two Sunday satellites with three total packages guaranteed.

PCPC or WSOP?

The winner of each tournament can choose one WSOP Main Event package or two all-inclusive packages for this year’s Punta Cana Poker Classic.

“Whether you like to grind the tables in the desert or prefer an unforgettable poker vacation in paradise, we’ve got you covered with WSOP PCPC satellites,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “While those who end up cashing in the WSOP will enjoy their trip, we know from experience that everyone who ends up going to the Punta Cana Poker Classic will have a great time. Ultimately, it’s up to the player.”

The WSOP/PCPC satellites take place every Sunday night. The 6pm ET tournament guarantees two $12,500 packages while the 8pm ET tournament guarantees one package. Both tournaments cost $50+5 to get into.

This year’s Punta Cana Poker Classic takes place this October at the luxurious Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Players will have exclusive access to a private section of the hotel known as The Level, complete with private restaurants, pools and beach.

Players who opt for the Punta Cana package after winning a satellite will receive two prize packages totaling $12,500. Each one includes the Main Event buy-in to the $500,000 GTD Main Event, a $300 satellite seat for the High Roller tournament, double occupancy, and all-inclusive access for two. With two packages included for the PCPC, winners will essentially get a trip for four to paradise, with Main Event buy-ins for two. Also included in the package is $2,700 cash.

Those who opt for the World Series of Poker Main Event this summer in Vegas will win a $12,500 package that includes the $10,000 Main Event buy-in to the world’s richest poker tournament and $2,500 for travel and accommodations.

Local ministry makes Christmas brighter for kids in need

 

Kim Everett | December 29, 2012
Local children’s ministry, C.O.O.L. (Children of our Lord) Kids, founded by NaKina Talbert and her husband Tom, recently hosted a Christmas party for 105 underserved children.  This was the fourth Christmas celebration hosted by the Talberts, but it was the first one held in Garland. 
In all, 210 children were served this holiday season, which includes gifts delivered to a group of Taiwanese refugee children. 
The couple recently moved its ministry to South Garland after research showed that numerous programs serve inner city children, but there aren’t many in the suburbs. “When a family is living in poverty they are typically in survival mode,” Talbert said. “They have little time or energy to focus on their children’s spiritual, educational or emotional needs.”
C.O.O.L. Kids is a Christian ministry that children can attend Saturday mornings and get a hot breakfast, have Bible study, receive mentoring, do arts and crafts, play games and get one on one attention. Talbert believes that this shows them that people care and gives them hope for a better future. The children can also get free used clothing and shoes, school supplies, and a take home lunch, as most of them are on the assisted lunch program during the week but may only eat one meal a day on weekends.
Elks Lodge #1984 provided the space for this year’s party.  “This is the first year the Elks have been involved but it will not be the last,” Talbert said.
The organization had lost its venue four weeks before the party and the members of the Elks Lodge offered their facility.  After hearing more about what the children’s ministry was doing, the lodge had toy and food drives and collected more than 200 toys and many pounds of food.  They also supplied volunteer staff, raised monetary donations, provided pizza for the party, along with storage and drop off  for donations, and gave lots of moral support.   The Elks have also agreed to let C.O.O.L. Kids use the lodge for its weekly ministry as well as for other events.
The families that benefit from the party are either living in section 8 or government subsidized housing or in shelters. They register each child at least a month in advance. “The Lord brings them to me…I don’t know how else to describe it other than that,” Talbert said.
Talbert found out about a section 8 complex near the lodge and went to speak to the manager.  “When I walked in the office she was talking with someone about how there were 40 families in the complex that would not have a Christmas this year,” she said. “It’s a God thing.”
A complex that houses Taiwanese refugee families also contacted her and asked for help.  “It took us from over 100 on our list to over 200,” she said. “But we knew if God brought them to us then He would provide, and He sure did.”
All the children at the party received a bag of gifts and a Build A Bear and enjoyed making Christmas ornaments, decorating cookies, and having their picture taken with Santa.
The ministry received lots of help from Firewheel Church families who sponsored more than 150 of the kids’ wish lists; Allen’s Norton Elementary School; Plano’s Lifepoint Church; Advantage Storage and Walgreen’s, both in Sachse; Wounded Warriors of Texas; residents in Woodbridge; Terri Jackson and Control Manufacturing; Kathy Senase and her team at AT&T; and the Bys family who raised 125 Build A Bears.  They are also grateful for the help of Rhanda and Nicole Holden and Patrick and Chrissy Wallis and family, along with countless other volunteers too numerous to mention.
“But mostly, thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing us to serve Him,” Talbert said.
