Exciting news for Six Toed Pete readers and poker players around the world including the USA! The ACR Sunday Million starts this weekend and continues over the next six weeks.
Here’s the Americas Card Room press release that reveals all the details:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
First of Five ‘Million Dollar Sundays’ $1,000,000 GTD Tourneys Kicks Off This Weekend on ACR.
San Jose, Costa Rica – September 9, 2015 – The single biggest promotion in Americas Cardroom’s history begins this Sunday, September 13th at 3pm ET. The US facing online poker site will kick off its first of five Million Dollar Sundays $1,000,000 GTD poker tournaments within the span of six weeks. The next four are set to go every weekend of October (4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th).
“This promotion is a key step to bringing huge prize pool poker back to United States players,” commented Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “American players haven’t been able to play so many tournaments of this size for years.”
Million Dollar Sunday tournaments were introduced by Americas Cardroom early this year. To date, they’ve successfully hosted three $1,000,000 GTD tournaments, revitalizing big prize pool poker within the borders of the United States. These $540 buy-in, no-limit Texas hold’em tournaments guarantee a life-changing $200,000 for first place.
The success of the Million Dollar Sundays tournaments has been largely credited to the large-scale accessibility to enter. Both big limit and small limit players have the chance to play in the huge event thanks to a variety of avenues from which players can receive their entries for a fraction of the cost.
Americas Cardroom will host three $66 buy-in Mega and Monster Satellites for Sunday’s event beginning on Friday. These three satellites alone guarantee 200 seats with super satellites and freerolls available to gain entry to the Mega and Monster. ‘Million or Bust’ Jackpot Poker for Million Dollar Sundays entries are also available where players can win their seat instantly for as little as $0.50. Players can also qualify for as little as a penny via the ‘Spin to Get’ IN slot machine available in the Million Dollar Sunday tournament lobby.
The $5 Million promotion has garnered the attention of some of the elite of the poker world. Just last week, 2015 World Series of Poker ‘November Nine’ finalist Joshua Beckley confirmed he’ll be playing and streaming via Twitch in every one of the Million Dollar Sundays tournaments. During the broadcast he’ll be awarding freeroll tickets to random viewers for a chance to win a trip to the 2015 Punta Cana Poker Classic worth $4,890.
“We know we’ve created something big when someone like Joshua Beckley plays in our tournaments to warm up for the WSOP Main Event final table,” continued Harris. “It’s a testament to just how huge the $5 Million promo really is.”
This promotion may very well be the catalyst for reviving online poker in the United States by bringing all worldwide players under one roof to compete in five $1,000,000 tournaments in a short span. The ability to offer such a huge promotion is a clear demonstration of the ongoing demand for such events in the US market.
