Americas Cardroom’s $1.3 Million High Five brings the heat

Did you play in Americas Cardroom’s recently-completed OSS Cub3d that had $8 Million in guaranteed prize pools? If you didn’t, you missed an incredible tournament series that included two $1 Million events.

Fortunately, the next big thing at ACR is right around the corner with their High Five Tournament Series (April 17th-21st). Here are just some of the highlights:

  • $1,300,000 in guaranteed prize pools. There are five tourneys with a guarantee of $80,000 or more. Buy-ins start at just $1+0.05.
  • $420,000 GTD Main Event on final day. The buy-in is $420+30, but you can qualify for far less via one of the many satellites.
  • 25 added tournaments. These are spread out evenly at five per day.

If you go to Americas Cardroom’s site, you’ll probably notice all the 420 references surrounding the High Five. While those are certainly amusing, especially the daily 10-minute “courtesy break” they’re running at 4:20pm ET, we prefer to focus on the great poker action over the five days.

And when the High Five concludes, Americas Cardroom’s next big thing will really start to heat up. It’s their $5 Million Venom this July that comes with a $1 Million first-place prize. This will be the biggest tournament ever hosted by a US-facing site.
