End-To-End Big Money Poker Action at Americas Cardroom

End-To-End Big Money Poker Action at Americas Cardroom

Last weekend not only saw the start of the $6.4M Mini Online Super Series (with that kind of money - not mini at all!) at Americas Cardroom but, coincidentally, the end of the $40 Million Online Super Series which, not surprisingly, saw some chunky prizes being awarded alongside a few of the coveted titles (because, as we all like to claim - there's more to the world of real money online poker than winning money).

With all poker fans nowadays given a crack at the whip thanks to cheap satellites, newcomers and poker hobbyists can have a go at prestigious events alongside more seasoned players, and so it was that the last exciting events lived up to their billing.

$500,000 GTD Sunday High Roller

High Roller tournaments often have small fields, but this event attracted 953 entries, thus padding the total prize pool to a tasty $571,800 that was split into 108 prizes.

Top three:

  1. Love Mondays - $103,496
  2. PeDeAnjo7 - $74,334
  3. DoctorCoffee - $55,751

$200,000 GTD Sunday Special

Another guarantee was broken in the ($215 buy-in) $200,000 GTD Sunday Special - ‘build it and they will come’ goes the quotation, and in this case the vital stats were 1,106 entries and the $221,200 prize pool they generated.

Top Three:

  1. chickenpastry - $39,816
  2. Blufetronz - $28,756
  3. ChrisPaulFTW - $21,456

Apestyles Sunday Banana, $250,000 GTD PKO

It must be nice to have a tournament named after you, which is the accolade that life has brought ACR Pro, Jon Van Fleet (aka “Apestyles”) in the form of the $250,000 GTD PKO event. The Bounty Tournament had a $1,050 buy-in and attracted 268 entries who battled it out for the $268,000 prize pool, which was split evenly into the regular prize money and juicy bounties. The beauty of the PKO format, of course, is that as well as (in this case) the 36 paid places, many others racked up financial reward by eliminating fellow competitors...

Top three:

  1. SirCashal0t - $23,751 + $29,457 in bounties
  2. sapepepe - $23,751 + $2,359 in bounties
  3. Starsdown - $15,142 + $9,551 in bounties
