Americas Cardroom to Host 5 More Million Dollar Sundays

ACR $5 Million GuaranteedFollowing the success of last night´s Million Dollar Sunday, Americas Cardroom has announced that it will host five more million dollar guaranteed events.

Yesterday afternoon, Americas Cardroom hosted its third Million Dollar Sunday of the year. The million dollar guaranteed tournament received an incredible 1,939 entries, meaning that although there was an overlay of $30,500, the site still turned a profit once the entry fees had been accounted for.

The success of the event prompted the site to confirm a rumor that had been circulating from last Friday, that there would be five more million dollar events throughout the fall – one to be played on Sunday September 13th, with the other four being hosted back-to-back from Sunday October 4th.

Americas Cardroom also confirmed that it would be continuing its “Million or Bust” Jackpot poker promotion – a three-handed hyper-turbo Sit & Go in which players can qualify for the million dollar events for just $12.00 – and hosting a comprehensive satellite schedule which includes “On Demand” Sit & Go games, mega satellites and monster satellites offering seats into the target event.

What Happened in Yesterday´s Million Dollar Sunday

Yesterday´s Million Dollar Sunday got underway on time at 3:00pm with eight hundred players – mostly qualifiers that had won their seats through Americas Cardroom´s comprehensive satellite schedule and promotions. By the time late registration closed at 8:00pm, there were 1,939 entries from 1,463 unique players.

The bubble burst little more than an hour and a half later in Level 27, when “Justicepeanut” bust in 307th place – the remaining players assured of a $700 min cash. Play continued at a fast pace until 2:25am in the morning, when the Million Dollar Sunday final table was set in Level 43 (blinds 25,000/50,000 – ante 5,000) – “breakfr33” having a 2 million chip lead over his closest opponents.

However, “breakfr33” came under intense pressure from the two players who had position on him at the final table – “fast riffs” and “Ra1syDa1sy” – and eventually finished in fourth place for $57,800. “Fast riffs” fell in third place to “Ra1syDa1sy”´s pocket Queens to set up a heads-up between “Ra1syDa1sy” (11.8 million chips) and “TALKINABOOT?” (7.5 million chips) with blinds at 100,000/200,000 – ante 20,000.

A chop of the remaining prize money was agreed (after a little confusion), and an intriguing heads-up encounter ensued – “Ra1syDa1sy” winning an hour later when he paired his K♠ 9 on the two-heart flop and “TALKINABOUT?” (J 5) missed his heart flush draw.

Windows 10 Compatibility Issued Identified (and Resolved)

On Saturday, several players complained that they could not access the cashier page or their rewards page through the Americas Cardroom poker client. It transpired that a compatibility issue existed between the Americas Cardroom client – which defaults to the Internet Explorer browser – and Windows 10, which uses the new “Edge” browser.

A temporary solution to the problem is to uninstall the Americas Cardroom software and reinstall it again; but hopefully the site is going to do a software upgrade in the near future to account for this issue so that the cashier and reward pages open up in the player´s default browser. Also hopefully the site may soon get around to releasing the long-promised Mac version of its software.
