Americas Cardroom Announces Liberty Quarter Million as Part of $500,000 Liberty Weekends
Online poker sites throws $250,000 on the table in single online poker tournament on the anniversary of Black Friday
As the online poker world gets ready to solemnly remember Black Friday, Americas Cardroom is giving everyone a major reason to celebrate. On April 15, the U.S.-friendly online poker site will introduce the Liberty Quarter Million, a no-limit hold’em online poker tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000. The first place prize is guaranteed to be at least $50,000.
“April 15 will go down in history as a day that we’ll never forget, but this time it’ll be because of something incredible,” stated Michael Harris, an Americas Cardroom spokesman. “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 Mar. 31 and April 29. The Sunday tournaments are re-entry with a three-hour late registration. That means if a player is eliminated from the tournament while registration is still open, they’ll have the option to buy back in as a new player.
On Saturdays at 7:00 pm ET, Americas Cardroom hosts a $10,000 guaranteed with a $50+$5 buy-in. On Sundays at 6:00 pm ET, the guarantee hits $50,000 and costs just $200+$15 to get into. Both weekend tournaments offer players 10,000 in starting chips.
For those players looking to satellite their way in, on April 13 at 8:00 pm ET Americas Cardroom will be hosting a 250 seat super satellite with 250 seats guaranteed for the April 15 Quarter Million. The 250 seat super satellite will cost only $36+$3 to get into.
The $50,000 and $250,000 guaranteed tournaments offer a familiar blind structure and buy-in to U.S. players who were victimized by Black Friday’s events, a signal that Americas Cardroom means business about becoming the no. 1 destination for online poker in the US.
Liberty Weekends kicks off on Saturday, Mar. 31, 2012. Full details on Americas Cardroom’s satellite structure for all 10 Liberty Weekends tournaments can be found at AmericasCardroom.eu.
