Americas Cardroom’s Online Super Series 2 is Smashing Success!
By RTR Dennis
Last month, Americas Cardroom ran the second installment of their Online Super Series. Dubbed “Online Super Series II,” this event featured 82 tournaments and $1 million in guaranteed cash. Interestingly enough, OSS II smashed the original guarantee to deliver $1,308,702 to players.
Most of the 82 tourneys in this series either met the guarantee, or paid out far more than the stated amount. The average OSS II tournament featured a $16,000 prize pool, while $100k, $150k and $200k guaranteed events were throwing into the mix as well. After seeing his site deliver one of the most impressive tournament series in the industry, ACR spokesman Michael Harris stated:
"The last two weeks have been unbelievably lucrative for our players. With over $1.3 million in payouts, OSS II was our most rewarding tournament series to date. A special congratulations goes out to WiVil, who took home the first place prize of $38,220 in our $200k Guaranteed tournament."
As Harris alluded to, “WiVil” took down the $200,000 Guaranteed event and earned the largest single prize in OSS II. But it’s also worth mentioning that WiVil won OSS II Event #63 ($2,775) and took third in OSS II Event #53 ($1,650); these strong finishes propelled WiVil to the leaderboard title and a sterling silver bracelet.
Going back to the overall guaranteed amount, what wasn’t included in the $1.3m was a $75,000 Beast tournament, which ran on the OSS II schedule. So essentially, it was like this tourney series offered nearly $1.4 million in guaranteed money.
Assuming you’re a tournament grinder who’s looking to compete for major money, you can obviously see that Americas Cardroom is a great place to play. And with the 27% ACR rakeback deal that you can get by signing up through RakeTheRake, this is an even better online poker room!
