Americas Cardroom offer massive $250k prize pool in Black Friday Anniversary Tournament

Posted on by RTR Dave

On the anniversary of Black Friday Americas Cardroom will introduce the Liberty Quarter Million – a No Limit Hold’em online poker tournament with a guaranteed $250,000 prize pool, with first place prize guaranteed at a minimum of $50,000.

Speaking about the Liberty Quarter Million, Americas Cardroom spokesman Michael Harris commented: “April 15th will go down in history as a day that we’ll never forget, but this time it’ll be because of something incredible. We’ve been growing our online poker community over the last year by leaps and bounds, and we’re excited to celebrate poker freedom with all our players by putting $500,000 on the table over five weekends.”

The Liberty Quarter Million tournament is part of Liberty Weekends, where $500,000 will be spread out over two big online poker tournaments every weekend between March 31st and April 29th. The Sunday tournaments are Re-Entry tournaments with a 3-hours-late registration, so if a player is knocked out of the tournament while registration is still open, they’ll have the option to re-buy back in as a new player.

On Saturdays at 7:00pm ET, Americas Cardroom hosts a $10,000 GTD with a $50+5 buy-in. On Sundays at 6:00pm ET, the guarantee hits $50,000 and costs just $200+15 to get into. The Sunday events will offer players 10,000 in starting chips.

For those players looking to satellite their way in, on April 13th at 8:00pm (ET) Americas Cardroom will be hosting a 250 Seat Super Satellite with 250 seats guaranteed for the April 15th Quarter Million Tournament. The 250 Seat Super Satellite will cost only $36+3 to get into.

The $50,000 and $250,000 GTD tournaments offer a familiar blind structure and buy-in to US players who were victimized by Black Friday’s events, a signal that Americas Cardroom means business about becoming the #1 destination for online poker in the US.

Liberty Weekends kicks off on Saturday, March 31st, 2012. Full details on Americas Cardroom’s satellite structure for all 10 Liberty Weekends tournaments can be found at, and don’t forget to sign up for Americas Cardroom through RakeTheRake so that you’re playing with the best rakeback deal.
