Americas Cardroom Rakeback and $250k Guaranteed

Posted on by RTR Dave

The rate at which the Americas Cardroom online poker tournaments have been growing is incredible. Not too long ago, the biggest online poker tournament in Americas Cardroom‘s short history was $15,000. This is a far cry from the $250,000 Guaranteed event that the site will hold on April 15th, 2012 at 12:00pm (ET) – where first place is guaranteed $50,000!

Those who want to play in the Liberty Quarter Million can pay the direct buy-in of $200 + $15. And if you can’t afford this amount, there are plenty of cheaper (or free) alternatives. Also keep in mind that this is a late registration poker tournament, and eliminated players can rebuy back in with a fresh stack of 10,000 chips, as long as late registration is still open.

Players who sign up at Americas Cardroom through RakeTheRake will receive a 100% match deposit bonus up to $1,000 and a top rakeback deal of 27% rakeback. So if you bought directly into the Liberty Quarter Million, you’d get $4.05 ($15 x 0.27) through your Americas Cardroom rakeback deal.

Aside from the direct buy-in, your Americas Cardroom rakeback deal will also pay dividends if you decide to buy into the 250 Seater Satellite on April 13th at 8:00pm (ET). Just like the name implies, the top 250 players will all win a $215 seat to the Liberty Quarter Million. The 250 Seater Satellite buy-in is $36 + $3, and there are also plenty of qualifiers for this mega-satellite:

$1 + $0.10 buy-in, R/A – Runs 21 times every day, one seat for the 250 Seater Satellite is awarded in each qualifier.

35 Combat Points + 3.5 Combat Points – Runs seven times every day, one seat for the 250 Seater Satellite is guaranteed.

$7 + $0.70 buy-in, Rebuy – Runs three times every day, two seats for the 250 Seater Satellite are awarded in each qualifier.

If you’re interested in entering the $250k Guaranteed for free, you can do so by earning 3,500 Rank Points between now and April 14th. Now this might sound like a lot of points, but keep in mind that Rank Points are awarded at a rate of 5.5 for every $1 in cash game or tournament rake generated. So if you’re able to generate $636.36 (3,500/5.5) in rake before April 14th, you’ll have received enough Rank Points to get a free Liberty Quarter Million seat. And with the Americas Cardroom rakeback deal, you’d get $171.82 in rakeback.
