Americas Cardroom is upping the ante this weekend with the guaranteed prize pool for Sunday’s $215 buy-in tournament being to doubled to $100,000.
The tournament starts at midnight UK time on June 9 with players able to satellite in cheaply via one of many qualifiers starting from just $1. The $1 satellites take place every day at 35 minutes past the hour with each awarding one spot into its nightly $24 buy-in events. These daily satellites begin at 11pm with each one offering a pair of seats into the $100,000 Guarantee. The US-friendly online poker site will also be hosting three and six-seat qualifiers just before the main event kicks off. “The same great $50,000 Guarantee that so many US online poker players love is twice as lucrative just for this weekend,” said Michael Harris from Americas Cardroom. “We expect this to be a great tournament and, with qualifiers from as little as one dollar, the prize pool should have no problem surpassing the $100,000 mark.” Americas Cardroom will also be hosting a special event for the upcoming Punta Cana Poker Classic on the same night with ten prize packages each valued at $4,100 into November’s Dominican Republic tournament set to be awarded. New players can earn a first deposit bonus of up to $1000 and earn a free seat into a $250 freeroll. Sign up at Americas Cardroom.
