FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Americas Cardroom Hosts Second Million Dollar Sunday on the Eve of Black Friday’s Anniversary This April.

San Jose, Costa Rica – February 23, 2015 – It took America almost 4 years to realize a $1 million guaranteed online poker tournament. But it’ll only take another 7 weeks to see its second $1 million prize hit the felt. On the eve of the 4th anniversary of Black Friday, Americas Cardroom is hosting yet another $1 million guaranteed poker tournament. Million Dollar Sunday is set to get underway on Sunday, April 12th at 3pm ET.

It’s the last Sunday before the anniversary of Black Friday and the announcement comes the morning after Americas Cardroom held its first $1 million guaranteed tournament.

“It took a bit of time, but America has emerged from the shadows of Black Friday brighter than ever,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “With another $1 million now on the schedule, we’re inching closer to what everyone in the United States has been craving. Yes, that weekly Sunday million dollar tournament could happen sooner than you think.”

Americas Cardroom’s first $1 million guarantee, held on Sunday, February 22nd ran smoothly and saw 1,799 entries compete for a piece of the $1 million prize pool. ForTheNguyen lived true to the “win” in Winning Millions, besting the field to claim the $200,000 first place prize.

ForTheNguyen wasn’t the only big winner on Sunday. Poker player mschu1213 took first place in the $300,000 Second Chance tournament to claim $57,000. Plus, Americas Cardroom also handed out its first five WSOP packages through online qualifiers.

The US-friendly site guaranteed a massive $1.5 million in tournament prize pools yesterday alone. Americas Cardroom has emerged as one of the fastest growing sites in the United States and continues to boast top marks for payment processing.

The $1 million guaranteed tournament is a testament to how big the community has grown. The announcement of another $1 million Sunday tournament just seven weeks after the first $1 million guarantee should boost the confidence of US poker players in a major way.

Satellites aren’t the only way to win a seat into the next Million Dollar Sunday Tournament. Through Americas Cardroom’s Spin To Get In feature, players can wager between $0.01 and $1 for a shot at winning a seat in the Millions. Only yesterday, 8 players spun into the $1 million GTD tournament and earned a seat for $1 or less. A total of 21 players were given a seat to the tournament since the new feature was launched.

Qualifiers for the next Million Dollar Sunday, scheduled for April 12th at 3pm ET, are now live in the Americas Cardroom tournament lobby.

The Cage on ACR San Jose, Costa Rica – October 9, 2014 – Americas Cardroom has officially broken new ground as poker players from around the world threw punches in The Cage. After the final hand of The Cage tournament was dealt, industry experts and those watching on the major online poker forums agree that the time-based cash game was an enormous success.

“We would like to congratulate all the participants in The Cage,” said Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “We witnessed a lot of heated moments at the tables as players viewed the six-figure prize pool up for grabs. In the end, we’re thrilled to see a lot of players walking away feeling like champions.”

The Cage surpassed all expectations in its debut. A whopping 66 players either direct bought in or qualified to the inaugural event of The Cage which took place on Wednesday, October 8th. The total prize pool was $330,000, which meant there was plenty of money to go around for all the combatants.

However, players weren’t playing for a distributed prize pool. They were playing for the exact value of their chip stack. The time-based cash game combined the excitement of a poker tournament with the adrenaline rush of a cash game. Poker players who entered the cash game did so with 5,000 in chips, with each one holding a real dollar value. Players who survived the three hours received cash for their exact chip stack.

The Cage participants had just three hours to dropkick their way to victory. Players bik6624235 ($29,947), UpayformyKia ($20,921) and vasya9 ($15,556) were the top 3 winners when the clock counted down to zero.
