Americas Cardroom Update: September 1, 2013

Americas Cardroom is making a couple of changes starting September 1st……

The Bad Beat jackpot program will be phased out.New ACR Table View

As of Sept. 1, 2013 there will be no more contributions to the Jackpot.

The existing Jackpot $187, 250 will will paid out as normal, whenever quad 8’s gets beat…..

When the entire pool is paid, the BBJ on ACR will be retired.

Why? As many will ask? (ACR Press Release quoted)

“We’re responding to player feedback by delivering the type of experience diehard poker players want,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “We’ve heard from our players and a lot of them are telling us that the Bad Beat Jackpot in its current form isn’t something they find attractive. So we’re changing the concept of how players get paid.”

Where will that money go?

Moving forward, the fee collected at Beast tables will go entirely toward feeding The Beast instead of being split between the Beast and the Bad Beat Jackpot.

Starting September 1st ALL stake levels starting at 10c/25c will collect a $0.25 max fee at Beast tables, with $0.18 dedicated to The Beast Cash Race and $0.07 allocated to The Beast Tournament Race. Micro stakes tables $0.05/$0.10 will no longer charge a fee.

This means the Beast Pool will be growing ever larger and even more enticing for all you ring game grinders………

Micro Tournaments added:

ACR has added numerous $1, $2 and $3 buy-in tournaments to the guaranteed tournament schedule.

Guarantees start at $100 for the $1 up to $300 for the $3 buy-ins.

Overlays and Overspreads have been numerous, so these are an excellent value play for all micro players to enjoy………

There are also Knock-outs, Turbos, Deep Stacks, Re-entry and Re-buys included on the new micro schedule. Players have been asking for these micros for a while and now ACR has delivered.
