Follow in Chris Moneymaker’s Footsteps at Americas Cardroom in the $1M Weekly Leaderboard Competition

In the world of marketing, a name can make a vital difference, and in the early years of real money online poker it was important for the industry to have significant and memorable stories to whet the appetite of poker fans.

One such fortuitous event came in 2003, when online poker was still in its infancy. A talented amateur player turned an $86 satellite into a World Series of Poker Main Event win in Las Vegas, catapulting him on to the all-time money list in one go and, at the same time - due partly to his name – becoming a legend. This was, of course, Chris Moneymaker – if there was ever a dream name that could put online poker on the global map, this was it.   

Twenty years later, and Chris Moneymaker has enjoyed a rewarding poker career, and today he is one of an elite team of Americas Cardroom ambassadors. The famous ACR Pro has always been a player favourite, embodying as he does the everyman (and everywoman!) ethos of the game in that it gives anyone, regardless of their background and whatever the size of their bankroll, opportunities to hit the poker bigtime.

Of all players, Moneymaker certainly appreciates his journey and, with this in mind, he would like to see others share his experience. Announcing Americas Cardroom’s upcoming Weekly Leaderboard Competition which, true to form for this excellent online poker operator, will guarantee $1,000,000 in prizes!  

How It Works

As is often the case with ACR, this is a meaty promotion. Half of the $1M will be set aside for the participants of the Weekly Leaderboard Competition, which runs from 11 March to 28 May, and the other half will go to players in the Final Tournament (4-5 June). Win this great online poker tournament and you can have a summer of buy-ins at Las Vegas thanks to the $100,000 prize on offer.

And there’s more - there's also a $15,000 all-expense paid package to play in the world’s most prestigious poker tournament up for grabs. Could you follow in Chris Moneymaker’s footsteps?

As for the Final Tournament, make a note in your diary for Day 1 on Sunday, 4 June, while Day 2 is on Monday, 5 June (both at 1:30pm ET). Note that as a tribute to Chris Moneymaker, each will cost $86, but players can qualify for much less via a bankroll-friendly satellite set-up!

All players earning points during any of the 13 Weekly Leaderboard Competitions qualifies for Final Tournament chips, with 1 point earning 1 chip carried forward.

Earning points couldn’t be easier! Taking part in any of the 13 Weekly Leaderboard Competitions is enough for 2,000 points, regardless of finishing position, and players can also earn points based on their overall finish in each event. Finally, participating in all 13 and you’ll be rewarded with a 10,000 points bonus!

The last leaderboard competition takes place on 28 May, after which all points will be converted into chips for the Final Tournament. The more weekly competitions you take part in, and the more success you have, the bigger your starting stack...
