|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.
