Americas Cardroom Sunday Night Nickel offering $5k!
By RTR Dennis
While it’s always great to compete for big tournament prize pools, one problem for many players is that the buy-ins for these events are too high. So in order to cater to those who’d like to play for big money – yet don’t have the bankroll to cover huge buy-ins – Americas Cardroom are running a Sunday Night Nickel tournament.
This event happens every Sunday at 8pm (ET), and it offers $5,000 in guaranteed money. Those interested in playing for this large prize pool only have to spend $5 + $0.50 on the buy-in, thus giving pretty much anybody the chance to play for big money. And when you sign up at Americas Cardroom through RakeTheRake, you’ll receive a 27% rakeback deal!
Besides the Sunday Nickel, other big news from ACR is that they’re now holding a weekly $50,000 Guaranteed. Interestingly enough, the unveiling of the $50k Guaranteed comes on the heels of Liberty Weekends, where ACR was running $500k worth of tournaments every week. The $50k was a new addition to these weekends, and it looks like it’s here to stay. Below are the details for the $50k Guaranteed:
- $200 + $15 buy-in
- Runs on Sunday at 7pm ET
- Starting stack of 10,000 chips
Once again, the 27% rakeback deal will certainly cut down on the $215 buy-in since you’ll receive $4.05 back ($15 x 0.27). Of course, the buy-in is still out of the reach of many recreational players, which is why it’s important to note that ACR runs satellites for the $50k Guaranteed every day. All you need to do is browse the Americas Cardroom software, and look in the satellites section to win your $215 seat for next to nothing.
