Breaking Boundaries - $2.5M Online Super Series At ACR4 years ago
Five years ago, the notorious Black Friday of Pokershook the very foundation of the US poker market. From the ashes, few US-friendly poker sites rose and even fewer tried to resurrect the famous online poker festivals that happened before the unfortunate event. Americas Cardroom was one of them, and in the autumn of 2011, the site hosted its very first Online Super Series. It was far from what the Americans were used to - only 10 events, a $50,000 Main Event and a total of $150,000 guaranteed cash prizes - but it was definitely worth it. Why? Because almost five years later, thanks to such online events, Americas Cardroom is ready to break some boundaries in the US.
And it all starts on Friday, April 15 when yet another online poker festival - the sixth since 2011 - is set for kickoff. Forget about 10 events and a total prize pool of $150,000, the Online Super Series VI can finally be compared to the top tournament series in the world. For nine days, US poker players will have the unique opportunity to compete in 76 events for a piece of a gigantic prize pool, the biggest of all US-friendly sites by far: $2.5 million. That’s almost 17 times bigger than in 2011. And atop of it all, the Main Event, scheduled for Sunday, April 24 at 4:00 PM ET will have a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, including a staggering $200,000 for the winner.
Do not worry though if you’re not willing to pay the $540 buy-in for the Main Event. Even if you play for nickels and dimes, you can still participate in the Online Super Series VI. You can register for as little as $0.06 in the $50 GTD Hyper Mega Stack. But if you’re still eyeing that juicy $200,000 handed to the Main Event winner but can’t pay $540, you can still try to qualify by registering at the Mega Satellites, Jackpot satellites or even by just playing Spin to Get IN. There is already a Main Event participant who qualified for just one penny so feel free to try even the lowest qualifiers on ACR. Maybe you’ll become the next one to play the $1M guaranteed tournament for just one cent.
