The popular US friendly online poker room Americas Cardroom is well known for many of its great promotions and large online poker tournaments and this week they announced a brand new addition to the weekly tournament schedule. The all new weekly High Roller Tournament delivers a guaranteed prize pool of $20,000 each week however ACR said that they expect that to be well beaten. The buy in is $500 + $30 and Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris adds that, "After the incredible success of our Online Super Series III, we kept hearing from players asking for an ongoing High Roller event, today, we're thrilled to deliver it on a weekly basis. While the guarantee is $20,000, we expect the final prize pool in the High Roller to climb much higher thanks to a satellite schedule that promises to feed a lot of players into it."
The tourney runs every Sunday at 6pm ET and remains open for 3 hours for late registration with each player starting with a 10,000 chip stack. This makes Sundays a very special day at Americas Cardroom with the big weekly $50,000 Guaranteed tournament starting an hour later, and for players who enjoy playing in large tourneys then they should be keeping Sundays free from now on. Satellites for the High Roller Tournament run every day of the week and guarantee at least one seat to the big one, and they will cost you a $40 buy in, with a special satellite running each Saturday at 6.30 pm that provides a minimum of 2 seats to the High Roller event. If you’re not a member of Americas Cardroom just yet then get signed up now, and once you become a real money online poker player you will receive a 100% poker welcome bonus up to $1,000 plus seats in the New Depositor Freerolls.
