The Cage Live and Americas Cardroom Poker

Combine Americas Cardroom (ACR), poker and Costa Rica. These are the three ingredients to an awesome poker event that takes the game to a whole new level. The number one US-facing poker site is running its Cage Live poker events several times throughout the year, giving players the chance to win some cash in live action and, as a bonus, party for a weekend in the hottest tourist destination in Central America.

Here are the dates for the remaining Cage Live events in 2019:
  • March 29 - April 1
  • May 31 - June 3
  • August 9 – 12
  • October 4 -7
  • December 6 – 9

ACR is holding Sunday satellites with two weekly Cage Live packages up for grabs. The $8,340 package gets you airfare, accommodations, the Cage Live buy-in and $1,000 to spend on whatever you like. The Cage Live is a two-day event where everyone who survives takes home some cash. Starting with a $5,000 stack, players work through four levels of frenzied action until the clock runs out. Whatever stack players have in front of them at that time is theirs to keep.

The Cage Live isn’t just another poker event – it’s an exclusive opportunity to party like a rock star in a tropical paradise for a few days. Have a few drinks at the bar with the ACR crew and take a tour of the offices to see how all the excitement comes to life.

Derek "Killingbird" Tenbusch, an ACR regular and Twitch poker streamer, was on hand for one of the events last year and stated in an interview, “Costa Rica’s beautiful. It’s been an amazing time. The people here are super welcoming and the tournament has been really fun. I’ve heard a lot of good feedback from the players about the unique structure of The Cage…”

Here are some of the past big winners of The Cage Live:

  • Troy Quenneville $51,315 – January 2018
  • Dan Stavila $42,115 - July 2018
  • Thomas Cannuli $30,745 - October 2018
