"MamaCoolJ" grabs Third Straight Victory in ACR’s The Beast
By RTR Dennis
Last summer, Americas Cardroom revolutionized the rake race concept through “The Beast.” This promotion is a monthly progressive rake race where the prizes grow along with the collective rake. For example, if the prize pool is $50,000, then 200 places will be paid and first place receives $4,875; assuming the prize pool hits $90,000, then 360 places get paid and first place earns $8,775. Amazingly, one lucky player has conquered The Beast cash race three straight times, which you can read about below.
MamaCoolJ on Amazing Streak at ACR
“MamaCoolJ” has become quite the star at Americas Cardroom after winning three Beast rake titles in a row. December’s race wasn’t even close as MamaCoolJ defeated his next closest competitor by 17,000 points to win $13,650 and a $75,000 tournament ticket. ACR spokesman Michael Harris discussed this hot streak by stating:
After conquering The Beast leaderboard competition in October and November, MamaCoolJ ended the year with a third straight victory under his belt. This is not only a milestone month for MamaCoolJ, but it's also a big deal for Americas Cardroom. A total of $226,545.81 were awarded in tournament prizes and $690,351.19 in cash prizes for a grand total of $916,897 to close the year 2012. And that's only 6 months’ worth of rewards since we first launched The Beast in July of 2012.
Lots of Winners
Considering that MamaCoolJ has played over 800,000 cash game hands since the beginning of October, it’s no surprise that he’s been so successful in The Beast. Of course, you don’t have to play hundreds of thousands of hands just to win through this promotion. In fact, 574 players managed to share in the $176,000 worth of prizes that were given out in December’s Beast!
If you’d like to grab prize money and tournament tickets, you should start by sitting down at the tables marked Jackpot (JP). Every hand you play with at least four players dealt into the pot earns you points towards The Beast. Going further, a small fee is collectively taken from each pot to fund the aforementioned cash race, tournament ticket prizes, and a bad beat jackpot.
