Have Fun Playing Progressive Knockout Tournaments at Americas Cardroom

Have Fun Playing Progressive Knockout Tournaments at Americas Cardroom

It wasn’t so long ago that online poker tournaments were - other than a few virtual bells and whistles to spice up proceedings - a pretty much standard offering.

Then a bunch of bright sparks embraced the technological wonderland that is the internet and, just a few years later, the main tournament format of choice for the modern online poker fan revolves around the Bounty concept. Americas Cardroom is an online poker operator at which a packed schedule of Progressive Knockout tournaments (PKOs) can be found.

The notion that we can pick up cash bounties by eliminating our opponents is a very attractive one indeed, not least because it means we can make a profit even if we don’t ultimately make the prizes. And, of course, it’s great fun. This is what we have come to expect from real money online poker nowadays - even the most hardened, serious poker player can’t avoid (and nor would they wish to!) the thrills and spills of Knockout tournaments.

Adding the word ‘Progressive’ has generated even more excitement, because rather than all of a bounty being awarded (as was the original practice), reserving a portion to add to the victor’s own bounty results in players becoming more valuable targets as they continue to eliminate opponents. Typically, by sending an adversary to the virtual rail you’ll receive 50% of their bounty, and the other half will then be added to your own bounty, and so on as you progress. It’s not unusual in PKOs, therefore, to find that the reward for knocking out a player can be greater than a prize itself.     

Back to Americas Cardroom, here’s a taste of the offering that has seen ACR prove a popular choice in 2022:

  • Sunday Brawl – $50,000 GTD at 5pm
  • Sunday Brawl – $5,000 GTD at 5pm
  • Tuesday $20,000 GTD – PKO 8-Max at 1:30pm
  • Tuesday $30,000 GTD – PKO 8-Max at 3:30pm
  • Wednesday $40,000 GTD – PKO 8-Max at 5pm

As well as regular PKO tournaments that are dotted about during the week, ACR also hold events such as the multi-million-dollar Venom PKO special, while PKO tournaments also feature in big money series like the various versions of their player-friendly Online Super Series.

Of course, there are many reasons to hit the tables at Americas Cardroom, with all the usual games and variants well catered for...
