Americas Cardroom’s Online Super Series 2 is Smashing Success!

By RTR Dennis

ACR online super series Rake The Rake

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!
